Add music director for U.S. Men’s National Soccer Team to Lupe Fiasco’s resume. The Chicago rapper was named the music director for the U.S. Men’s National Soccer team for this year’s FIFA World Cup Campaign.

Lupe’s responsibilities will consist of creating Spotify playlists with DJ group the SNDCLSH and coordinate in-game music programming during the send-off series. U.S. Soccer will reciprocate the love by promoting Lupe’s newest single, “Mission“.

Fiasco is slated to make a number of appearances. One will be in Times Square on May 30th for Fan Appreciation day, and the other will be June 16th in Chicago, for the U.S.’ match against Ghana.

Fiasco’s fifth studio album, Tetsuo & Youth, is set for release later this year.
