AHH Stray News: Lupe Grants Bill Murray’s Wish, Gucci Mane’s Socks, “Hamilton” Mixtape Arrives
Rapper Lupe Fiasco received an unexpected surprise at his Wednesday night (November 30) show in Austin, Texas after actor Bill Murray demanded an encore from the audience. The “Ghostbusters” star was among the fans at Lupe's gig at The Belmont, and as the Hip-Hop star prepared to wrap up his set, he spotted a familiar face in the crowd calling for one more song. Lupe obliged, and he later got the chance to meet Murray backstage. The musician shared a photo of the pair in conversation on Twitter, and captioned it, "When @BillMurray comes to your show in Austin, TX and proceeds to FORCE an encore! (Gave me some amazing words of encouragement).”
Gucci Mane has revealed his first ever sock collection with Stance. The new capsule features two designs by Gucci. The first set feature a red, black and green colorway with a cartoon image of Gucci’s face superimposed over the socks. The second pair sees Gucci monetizing his signature ice cream cone face tattoo, with the image emblazoned over a white and red background, with the words “GU WOP” sewn into the toes. The new collection can be purchased here.
