Relive the hype of Lupe Fiasco vs. Daigo in this epic Street Fighter 5 exhibition

I don't think we could've asked for a better way to officially kick of Street Fighter 5. Rapper Lupe Fiasco and MCZ|Daigo Umehara, regarded by many as the best Street Fighter player of all time, met last night in Northern California for an SF5 exhibition.


Though he's played casually throughout the years, Lupe would be the first to admit he's nowhere near the level of player Daigo is, but Street Fighter 5 was new territory for both competitors.

As most were expecting a quick 3-0 in favor of The Beast, heads began to turn when Lupe managed to pull out a first game victory. You'll see the final moments of said game below:

The ensuing set would be about as hype as one could ask for, and you'll see the whole thing plus post match interviews in the video below.
