Song name: Superstar
Artist: Lupe Fiasco Featuring Matthew Santos
Label: Atlantic Records
Year it was released: 2007
Location: Chicago, IL
This is one of my favorite Lupe Fiasco songs, it had a great energy and vibe to it. I felt like it was a commercial record that wasn’t commercial. It had all of the elements for it to be mainstream, but it still felt underground. The song featured Rock/Folk Matthew Santos on the hook.
