Lupe Fiasco Brings Food, Encouragement to Occupy Oakland

Lupe came to Occupy Oakland

Okay, so he might be kind of a whiner. But Chicago rapper Lupe Fiasco is also down for the cause. Prior to performing last night at the Fox Theater in Oakland, Fiasco dropped by the Occupy Oakland encampment and offered a few words of support and solidarity -- along with food, supplies, tents, tables, and a generator, according to a witness writing on IndyBay. He gave a brief statement during the group's evening meeting, then took off to play the Fox, where he also gave a shout-out to the Occupy movement. Watch videos of his Oakland appearances after the jump, courtesy of IndyBay.

Here's Lupe speaking at Occupy Oakland:

Of course, his presence didn't elicit quite the response of another rapper dropping by Occupy Wall Street, but we're sure the occupiers appreciated it nonetheless.

"Okay, so he might be kind of a whiner." I'm a "whiner" too. Life ain't fair because it isn't and it was organized to be that way. I don't see anything he supports as "whining" tbh. I don't know if it's just me.
