Lupe Fiasco Donates Coats To Hometown Youth

Lupe Fiasco will be doing his part this holiday season by handing out winter coats to needy kids in his Chicago hometown.

Chi-Town’s Channel 7 news reports that the Grammy-award winning MC chipped in $5,000 in an effort to help families in the area. He has already given out hundreds of jackets on the East Side of town and plans on heading to his West Side neighborhood later today.

In related news Lupe will be heading overseas later this month for Australia’s annual Big Day Out Festival. The show travels throughout the country and spans several dates in January and February. – Elan Mancini

    Good shit Lupe, somebody gotta look out for the young ones. Everybody disregard the youth till they grow up and stick a gun in yo face, right? Might change a life Lupe


    Score 1 for HH&MH.

    Good idea though, Lupe. Turkeys don’t last more than a day anyway. I just hope they weren’t embroidered with “LupeEnd.”

    No Lupe.
