You don’t expect Lupe Fiasco’s opening act to be a 22-year-old rapper or for him to have such a firm grasp on his identity as a musical craftsman. Nonetheless, here we are, admiring the skill of Milwaukee’s WebsterX. A year after the experimental rapper blew audiences away at the Big Gig, he’s back in Wisconsin for his “Lost Ones” tour, including his first hometown show in months. Milwaukee’s show also will feature fellow member of the New Age Narcissism artistic collective Lorde Freddee, along with Mic Kellogg and a bunch of promised surprises.
