I don't know if you ever came across Lupe Fiasco's hypebeast blog. It was probably the best marketing tool (for lupe) on the internet. By looking through the archives you can see all his favourite companies slowly caving in. For example one post would express an interest in a product, and the next would be Lupe 'rockin' the wear.
It's also pretty informative. Growing up in a country town AND attending a public, i had NO idea of the following:
Muslims practice sawm, or fasting, for the entire month of Ramadan. This means that they may eat or drink nothing, including water, while the sun shines. Fasting is one of the Five Pillars (duties) of Islam. As with other Islamic duties, all able Muslims take part in sawm from about age twelve.
During Ramadan in the Muslim world, most restaurants are closed during the daylight hours. Families get up early for suhoor, a meal eaten before the sun rises. After the sun sets, the fast is broken with a meal known as iftar. Iftar usually begins with dates and sweet drinks that provide a quick energy boost.
Fasting serves many purposes. While they are hungry and thirsty, Muslims are reminded of the suffering of the poor. Fasting is also an opportunity to practice self-control and to cleanse the body and mind. And in this most sacred month, fasting helps Muslims feel the peace that comes from spiritual devotion as well as kinship with fellow believers.
ALHAMDULILAH!!!!….MAY ALLAH BLESS YOU AND YOURS DURING THIS HOLY MONTH!!!!
I guess being such a spiritual person explains his giving nature. Either that or it's the standard path that rappers take.
