Happy birthday to the #Chicago #hiphop legend @LupeFiasco

We need some help! Hey fans & friends. Our van was stolen from a parking lot about a month ago. While no extremely valuable items were inside (cameras, etc) we did lose some things. If you can help us to recover these we’d be EXTREMELY grateful. https://t.co/XHSBtpAGym

Yep. There's a documentary coming out called @midwaydoc. Pretty much all of these artists are involved. Rubberoom's story is particularly heartbreaking. https://t.co/bwUBL4hHsL
