Rapper Lupe Fiasco is set to try his hand at modelling on Thursday (10Apr14) when he hits the catwalk in Australia.

The Superstar hitmaker is friends with Australian design duo Melvin Tanaya and Lyna Ty and has now agreed to appear in a fashion show for their line Song for the Mute during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia in Sydney.

The hip-hop star admits he is nervous about his runway debut, but hopes his experience as a fashion show spectator will stand him in good stead.

He tells Australian newspaper the Sydney Daily Telegraph, "This is the first time I've walked in a fashion show. I don't know what to do but I have been to enough fashion shows - I'm just going to emulate the people I have seen: you know, laser eyes. Hopefully I don't fall and break a heel!"
