Bassist for Lupe Fiasco?

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by brndn123, Jun 8, 2011.


  1. Flippin' through the channels with the gf. We came across Lupe Fiasco's performance at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards. Surprisingly enough, the bass was mixed pretty heavy in the mix which was a nice change of pace from most award shows. The action starts midway through the second song, take a listen:

    Out of My Head/Show Goes On (Live) | Lupe Fiasco | Music Video | MTV

    Anyways, anyone know who this guy is? Is he a fellow Tber by any chance? Definitely has some chops and that tone? Good lord. C'mon tb, don't let me down.
     
  2. Not sure, but subbing this... Lupe's first two have been in my top 5 go-to albums for the past 3-4 years. Still haven't gotten Lasers. :/
     
  3. I saw him on the Colbert Report, and whoever the bassist is, he got a surprising amount of camera time for a bass player in a modern backup band. He was laying down some good stuff! His drummer is worth noting as well.

    Man, I love real-life backup bands that use real-life musicians... That aren't way back in the dark :D
     
  4. Doh! Forgot about the Colbert appearance... in that video he's playing a GK 2001RB with a 410RBH + 115RBH stack, can't place the bass offhand...

    Robert "Bubby" Lewis...monster monster player. Look up some clips of him on youtube at NAMM going toe to toe with guys like Hadrien.

    that dude is local. he's a friend of lupe's...and a friend of my manager. I'll find out his name tomorrow. i've had conversations with my manager about that dude. i guess him & lupe go back a ways. Used to skate together and now he does all of his recordings too
     
  12. I've been aware of bubby's amazing skill for the last few years. I did not put two and two together on this one...wow

    Yeah, I was talking to my boss and he said he knows the dude who was in the video for the song Lupe did for Twilight...and he records some stuff with him when he's back in town, but he's not touring with him ATM
