How tall is Lupe Fiasco? Lupe Fiasco is 5 feet, 10 inches tall, according to most websites, though in the hip-hop world, he’s emerging as something of a larger-than-life figure. The Chicago rapper, producer, and entrepreneur got his start in the early 2000s, and after dropping his acclaimed debut, “Lupe Fiasco’s Food & Liquor” in 2006, he rose to the forefront of the “socially conscious” hip-hop movement. Lupe has never been shy about expressing his personal views, though as he told Rolling Stone, his forthcoming fifth album, “Tetsuo & Youth,” will be free from the politicking heard on his previous efforts.

Although this Windy City multi-talent got his start in the early part of the new millennium, curious fans likely first began asking, “How tall is Lupe Fiasco?” in 2006, the year he guested on fellow Chicagoan Kanye West’s “Touch the Sky” and released “Food & Liquor.” By then, of course, Lupe had already founded his 1st and 15th Entertainment Record label, and in the years since, he’s released three acclaimed studio full-lengths. His third, 2011’s “Lasers,” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, ensuring that this 5-foot, 10-inch MC will forever be known as one of the decade’s hip-hop giants.

How tall is Lupe Fiasco compared to other popular rappers? Lupe is taller than Kanye West and West Coast superstar Kendrick Lamar, who stand 5 feet, 8 inches, and 5 feet, 6 inches, respectively. Fiasco doesn’t quite measure up to Drake or Jay Z, however. Drizzy checks in at 6 feet even, while Hova — the $900 Million Man himself — stands an impressive 6 feet, 2 inches tall. Then, the question “how tall is Lupe Fiasco?” is somewhat immaterial, as a rhymer’s height doesn’t determine his or her ability to rock the mic. To wit: Lil Wayne stands a mere 5 feet, 6 inches, while the great Bushwick Bill of the Geto Boys is only 3 feet, 8 inches tall.
