Coming off the release of his album Lasers, Lupe Fiasco weaves dazzling verbal tapestries of socially conscious rhymes buttressed by soaring melodies and teeth-rattling beats. With such hits as "Superstar," "Daydreamin’," and "Shining Down," Lupe Fiasco's music alternates between keenly intelligent flow and mellifluous singing, soothing eardrums scarred from hearing too many cats being bathed. British rapper Tinie Tempah adds his rhyme-forging skills to the night's lineup while continuing his rapid ascent into the hip-hop pantheon. The duo will lay down tunes at the outdoor Time Warner Cable Uptown Amphitheatre, letting music flow up into the night sky to entertain hang-gliding onlookers and throw off beat-boxing geese.
