NChicago, Illinois
Payless Grocery is a corner store that has recently begun stocking fresh produce. Often these kinds of stores are the main grocers in communities like Englewood. But tension bubbles up around these stores because some of the businesses focus too much on junk food and liquor.  It’s an issue Lupe is sensitive to — his first album was called Food & Liquor. Changing that paradigm is what brought him out to Payless on Tuesday afternoon.  “It may seem like it’s insignificant, but you never know who’s going to walk away with something and what’s the best way to put it but juxtapose it next to the thing, which is the most visited thing in the community, which is the corner store,” Lupe said.
