Video: Lupe Fiasco mourns slain friends + previews "Lamborghini Angels" lyrics on MTV's RapFix Live!



Lupe was just on RapFix Live with Nature and Sway, and did one of the best interviews he has ever done. He thanked Nature for being one of the MC's that taught him how to rap, and also for providing the "Fiasco" part to his rap alias via a song off The Firm album.

He also reveals that the creative process of some songs may be halted in order for him to read a book and become more knowledgable on the particular subject. He says that process was applied to his next single "Lamborghini Angels", then spits some of the lyrics off the track:

With her eyes to the ceiling and a needle in her brain, She looks back into the crowd, wipes the blood and then explains, How she slipped from this existence to the realm of the deranged, Her becoming must be halted to reverse what she became, From the looseness of her tongue to the pollution of her aims, To do nothing is barbaric, the solution is humane, You must destory the mind and hopefully retrain, Torture out the wildness and replace it with the tame, Blank slate, when she recovers she won't even know her name, Perfect wife and perfect lover, no resistance, no complaints, May God bless the scientific cure for the insane, Knew that she shouldn't go to school, but she thought that that should change..

It sounds like another chapter of the MYH Saga to me, haha! The process was also applied to a song called "Atomic Misphilosophy" off Food & Liquor 2 Part 2. Also, Sway played a montage of a few members from All City Chess Club expressing desire to work on a full project, to which Lupe replied "Let's do it!". He said a mixtape would be a simpler process than an album as far as the legalities go, so lets hope it comes to fruition. 

Also, he compared the status of CRS to someone going into a coma on the operating table. It's not a gurantee that it will wake up again, but it's definitely not off the table. Most importantly, watch above as Sway plays a six year old clip of himself and Lupe touring Chicago for an episode of MTV's: My Block. When the video was over, Lupe was in tears because some of the people in the clip have already passed away. He goes on to say that watching the video made him feel helpless because even six years later, nothing has changed about his neighborhood and he knows that some of the kids won't make it out of there. 

Personally, this interview struck a huge chord and I can admit that I also shed a few tears. For people outside of the U.S, HERE is an alternate link to that portion of the interview. All that, and a whole lot of other things were discussed so if you have the chance to watch this interview, I highly suggest you do. Hit the jump to watch the rest of the clips!

  10. "This some deep shit
    It's my me impersonatin' we shit
    Vicariously in every rap I speak with
    I hope you're speakin' for me, if I'm ever speechless
    Cause I'mma be you
    Even though you're not here to be with
    I hope I see these gangsters actin' like teachers
    Wake up out they sleep, dare to dream
    In a world so Martin Luther King-less"

    Interview makes this part of Always Shine much more meaningful.

  11. this plus the ramadan video have erased all doubts for me about lupe as a person, man you never know how artists are on a personal level regardless of how they are behind a mic/camera but damn...hard to doubt that lupe is first and foremost a great human being and secondly a legendary artist. I mean its hard not to like the dude, just watchin the few interviews on the last couple of posts and while you see he's all swagged out, you can still see the humbleness, especially in the ramadan vid.

  12. Lupe is a really normal, great, good person. I feel like this guy is my brother, uncle... Just my friend.

    I'd love to chat sit down with him and have a discussion one day.

    The genius of his work is just an added bonus, salaam :)

  13. Also, just wanna say that its true what he said about the "Nothings changed" part...

    I live in a particularly violent country in Africa, and my people (not-blacks) have been made to be economically and educationally disadvantaged. We've been put in these places called Vlakte (flats), and its honestly the worst place on earth for me...

    I resonate with what Lu says in his music. These places create breeding grounds for crime, drugs, sex and ignorance.... Its very difficult to escape is unless you juxtopose yourself.

    My grandparents did that for both my parents. And then they escaped through educating themselves... Thats the ONLY way you can get out.
    Education.

    Salaam :(
