Cambridge meets Chitown

Posted by Bobby Hankinson November 21, 2006 01:13 PM

I was surprised at last Wednesday's Lupe Fiasco show when I was frisked by bouncers entering the Middle East Downstairs. They didn't even want to let me bring in my pen, until I flashed my press pass.

I've seen plenty of shows in the dank basement without ever getting the pat-down on my way in. So why this performance from the rap-star-on-the-rise?
