My southwest side neighborhood is full of interesting curiosities. A 24 hour car wash, several bridal shops, gangs and this restaurant. It's owned by Lalo, a Mexican immigrant businessman. He owns this establishment while
his brother owns another similar down the block.
Grown up past his skateboarding roots and having ditched the smart guy glasses, Grammy nominated artist,Lupe Fiasco is getting tougher. Still a gracious and professional guy, he had it with my assistant Flint's constant prodding to fight with him like ninjas. Lupe let it out.
I had Lupe back in my clutches again last week shooting him for a profile in Chicago Magazine. I'd shot him before for SPIN when he was still workin' it with his single Kick Push. Now don't dream of shooting this vetern with a skateboard. He's even thinking bout changing his name to a symbol. Watch out TAFKAP
