โ€‹Taking down Fighting Games legend Daigo Umehara in February in an exhibition match, rapper Lupe Fiasco has thrown down the gauntlet yet again, this time challenging professional Smash Wii U player Gonzalo "ZeRo" Barrios of Team SoloMid.

โ€‹โ€‹Not one to back down, ZeRo accepted, laying down a challenge at Genesis 4 in early January.

Recent Evo "Chamion" Ally threw his hat into the ring as well, and Lupe responded as you'd expect, returning with the flames.

Playing almost exclusively StreetFighter, Lupe has a huge task ahead of him if he wants to take down some of the best Smash players ever.โ€‹โ€‹

Closer to 6 months, we're 184 days away from one of the greatest Sm4sh showmatches ever.

โ€‹โ€‹Lupe Fiasco definitely has his work cut out for him, but with some of the best Ryu mains in the world, including Trela, nothing is impossible.

Planning to unveil his official handle, we'll also get too see the rapper-turned-fighting games competitors final form.
