Lupe is featured in the new issue of YRB Mag. In the interview he talks about Lasers, making his fashion label more eco-friendly and future projects.
“This year, for me, it’s all about music. Just put out music, put out as much music as you possibly can. With the label or without the label, free or for pay,” he says. “We’re going to do a ton of touring this year, so you know, it’s just about music. Performing music, releasing music – all of that good stuff.”

Video: Lupe Fiasco puts in his bid for Food & Liquor 2 to run for the President of the United States of America
Posted on 7:45 AM by SeanTheRobot [@LDVK]
This is footage of the 2nd show at Roseland Ballroom in NYC that Lupe did yesterday. Lupe addressed the crowd and talked about the presidential election and the current campaigns that are starting. He especially pointed out Donald Trump and his dumbass attempt to run for president.
While doing all that he jokingly said that he wants to put in his bid now for Food & Liquor 2 to run for the President of the United States of America and put it on the ballot of the Fiasco Friday Party. - After the jump you'll find some performance clips featuring 'Out Of My Head' and "Daydreamin'."

Now you can think of VIBE what you want and I personally wasn't always friendly towards them but they did a good job by putting Lupe on this list. They put him on #2 right behind Weezy. Check out what they had to say about Lupe:
Want to know how lyrically gifted Lupe Fiasco is? Consider the following bars from his awesome “SLR” freestyle:“Pharrell what these niggas talkin’ ‘bout?/Two-man Big Pun, a one-man Slaughterhouse/A two-album Jay-Z, a one nigga Wu-Tang/Young and hungry Mos Def, a conscious-rappin’ Lil Wayne.” From any other MC, it’d be an incredibly nifty string of comparisons dismissed as baseless bravado, yet rap heads actually considered the truthfulness of Lu’s proclamations.But the Chicago native doesn’t have to speak his greatness into existence via braggadocio; his two near-flawless albums (Food & Liquor, The Cool) ring loud and clear.And while critics—us, and even himself, included—may pan his latest Lasers album, the pop ears are finally listening, too. The album moved more than 200,000 copies its first week. With a more consistent presence, Lupe really can touch the sky.

“They still can’t understand me. They still don’t get it. They still don’t understand that, even without a hit record, Lupe Fiasco will be just as relevant and just as successful as the dude with the hit record. They just don’t get that.”

We told you about this contest not too long ago...now the winner has been announced and it's Nu-Centz with his song 'Had Enough.' In the clip above you can hear Lupe talk about the contest and you can also hear the winning song and an interview with Nu-Centz. Interesting little fact, the song samples a German song called 'Da Da Da' by the group Trio. - I guess now we just gotta wait for Lupe to lay a verse on it.
