Must-See Music Pick! From the Music Editors: View Music Picks 
Of all the different types of hip-hop fans (pop, alternative, hard-core, golden-era, crunk etc.) you'd be hard-pressed to find someone who isn’t a fan of Lupe Fiasco. The homegrown student of the game has been a pioneer in that he's raised the IQ standards for the next generation of rap. In an interview with PBS's Tavis Smiley, Lupe discussed how his beat selections are mainstream-friendly as a means to covertly deliver his powerful subject matter to the masses. And he's still in his twenties; what's the next step for the "Superstar"? (J. Min)
