The Truth With Elliott Wilson: Does Lupe Fiasco Love Controversy? [Video]

Let's face it, "Touch The Sky" was a very long time ago...and as of late, Lupe's excessive, extreme behavior is more of a spectacle than his bars. He was recently kicked off of stage this past Sunday at a Hip-Hop Inaugural event. His lyrics were coontroversial (purposely misspelled)...well, they have always been...but anytime you recite 40 minutes plus of one song or verse highlighting your contradicting views of the very person essentially responsible for your performance, you are begging to be shown the back door.

My advice for Lupe Fiasco: shut up and rap, bro.

In today's episode of The Truth, Elliott discusses Lupe Fiasco's dramatic performance at an Inaugural concert on Sunday and history of controversy. Tell us what you think: is Lupe a prophet as some say, or does he just live for the drama?

Road To Brooklyn: Barclays Arena Special Look [Video]

The City of New York is electrifying in and of itself. The Barclays Center in the midtown section of Brooklyn further exudes that belief. With an Oculus (pictured above) that spans 80 feet over the plaza/entrance of the arena, it does all event goers justice, as it "puts the battery in your back" as you walk through the doors. In addition, this is one of the few arenas in the country that offers free Wi-Fi connectivity for each of its visitors at lightning speed. If you haven't been yet, get there. Definitely worth the trip.

A look at the evolution of the Net's new home - and the new pride of Brooklyn - the Barclays Center.
