Lupe Fiasco Played A Street Fighter Champion Last Night – And Won

UPDATE: Black Thought, Questlove, Del The Funky Homosapien, Murs, Fashawn, & Domino all came together to record Street Fighter V’s new theme song. Check out the video below:

While on the road for his Tour For The Fans, Lupe Fiasco has been boning up on his Street Fighter skills, even challenging other industry heads to matches here and there. Tonight, Lupe decided to grace the stage at a Street Fighter V launch event in San Francisco to fight professional gamer/champion Daigo in a best of 5 match.

I guess he went 3D after all:

It’s possible (and very likely) that most of this showoff was staged, but even so, Lupe brought some skills that affirm that love he talked about on “Gold Watch.” Either way, it’s an exciting match that shows Lupe finally putting his money where his mouth’s been at on Twitter.

Street Fighter V is in stores today. Check out the 20-minute fight above.
