Lupe Fiasco was featured on MTV yesterday--not for his wildly popular music (currently at no. 2 on the MTV "music meter")--but for his activism. Act.mtv.com posted a nice little rundown of Lupe's various non-profit and/or consciousness-raising activities, including but not limited to: building awareness of clean water issues by climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro for their "Summit on the Summit," fighting malaria with social media and partnering his Lupe Fiasco Foundation with the Skill Up Chicago program for inner city youth, conspiring to send a Chi-town teen group on a "cultural and philanthropic tour of Ghana." Looks like he's using another mainstream media outlet to spread love as well--MTV!
