Lupe Fiasco's SNDCLSH Invades LIV on Wednesday

Part passion project and part philanthropic endeavor, Lupe Fiasco's latest gig is both catchy and admirable.

The Chicago-based rapper has combined forces with longtime friend Sky Gellatly to form Soundclash (SNDCLASH), an electro-clash collaboration appearing at LIV this Wednesday.

The duo's set to release its debut all-electro EP, Don't Drop the Flag, this year.

According to The Source, Fiasco and Gellatly will donate the proceeds of their forthcoming EP to help children in need. And throughout his career, Fiasco's involvement with various charities has played a defining role in the musician's public persona.

"We call it SNDCLSH because it is influenced by so many different styles of music," Lupe tells Okayplayer. "So it's not just progressive house. It's not just dubstep, drum 'n' bass. It's all of those things combined."

Lupe Fiasco and Sky Gellatly's SNDCLASH. Wednesday, February 8. LIV, 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach. The party starts at 11 p.m. Call 305-674-4680 or visit
