Video: Lupe Fiasco talks about his performance at the StartUp RockOn Pre-Inauguration Event


The Hot 93.7 Morning Crew talked to Lupe and Guy at the Grammys and for the first time Lupe talked about being escorted off stage at a private pre-inauguration event  last month.

“You have to have kind of thick skin to be in this business anyway,” explained Lupe who noted that online community is known to twist the facts. “It can be things that are completely one hundred percent untrue, but because of the blogs it gets picked up… and [they] run with it.

It’s almost like you have to accept it as the truth because you’ll never be able to talk to everybody and say hey that didn’t happen.”

    1. Hopsin spits like a dime a dozen rapper who can't get signed. Nigga makes music like one too. Son wouldn't know artistry if it smacked him upside the face, shitted on him, then stole his wallet.

      Delete
    2. Still more views on his singles than a 'major' signed 'artist' who is trapped in a contract. While Hopsin rolling and doing his own thing on his own label. FNF? a damn farce.

      Artistry? Creativity? Wallet? Lupe cares as much for money as any other mainstream shit does.


      Lupe was good when he cared about his fans and wasn't as famous and full of nuts-riders teenagers who jerk off all day.

      Delete
    3. And since when do you care how a rapper 'spits'?

      Wasn't Lupe initially famed for his 'MESSAGE' and 'Lyrics'?

      Lupe is turning 30+ and what is next? How to milk his nerdy fans?

      Base an album off an ANIME CHARACTER.

      Yeah play in on more gimmicks and milk the Japan-mania.

      Now he has all his trend riding fans with no self awareness watching Akira cause it's COOL and TRENDY ALL OF A FCKING SUDDEN.

      ''Is that all you think life really is
      Well if so, then you're a fucking idiot''


      Well, I'm aware Lupe can't change the new age mind controlled kids.

      ''but if the shoe fits, wear it''

      Guess milking is just business. Cause the price may be too big.

      And I love Wasalu, it's just that Lupe isn't heading in the direction I'd love to.

      But then again it's just my opinion and doesn't change any shit. It's just how I feel and I'm fine with it.

    4. That still don't put him on Lu's level of artistry. Sorry.

      Delete
    5. It does make him REALER to an certain EXTEND.

      Let me put it this way, Lupe is an collaborator with the all the trash in this game.

      He never, ever dared to ATTACK ANY RAPPER.

      Silence can be seen as being OK with something.If Lupe is struggling with the state of the 'Business' (of which he, let me remind you, makes a living) then why is only complaining about Label 'Issues' (360 deal MONEY issues).

      Why a meltdown after a no-moral sell out who called himself Chief Kief responded.


      If you have something to say, don't back down cause of sale numbers.

    6. Listen you whiney prick there is nothing wrong with NOT attacking any rapper, its called not spreading negativity maybe something you should learn about. And what do you mean why is he only complaining about his label issues what else should a person in his position complain about ? What a stupid thing for YOU to say.

      Delete
    7. NEGATIVITY? What?

      Since when is speaking on something bad NEGATIVE?

      Let's all ''not spread negativity'' by not speaking out in the face of those calling for evil.

      Nice logic you got going on there.

      Delete
    8. In future there is a comment box for these conversations. P.S if you're in love with Hopsin so much and dislike Lupe that much why are you on a dedicated Lupe Fiasco blog site. Took a wrong turn maybe?

      Delete
    9. Obviously speaking on a certain problem is not negative( Lupe is known for talking about all types of problems) you are taking what I said out of context. But ATTACKING other rappers is negative, have you ever heard of a rapper beef that created anything positive? 99% of rapper beef is useless and retarded.

      Delete
    10. Cosigning negative people is also NEGATIVE. Talking about them as super nice people who do good to the society is NEGATIVE too.

      In case you thought I was 'Taking things out of Context'.

      Delete
    11. I'm not in love with Hopsin, I barely listen to his music.

      Just mentioned he dropped more real stuff than Lu lately, and you trend nut riders turn into defense mode.

      Who was talking about beef?

      Anyway I'm done, if you're not able to recognize that pop and certain hiphop create destructive culture then what ever, your loss.

      Delete
    12. I'm sorry but what? All that shit Hopsin talks about Lupe has done YEARS ago, ever heard of Switch? Daydream?, all Hopsin does is attack mainstream rappers because it's the cool thing to do nowadays so the hipster "real hiphop" fans can get behind him, "oh Hopsin said fuck Drake, I hate Drake too so Hopsin is real" that's pretty much the mentally Hopsin fans has, he can rap and I like his message but Lupe talks about problems that really matters, haven't heard one song from Hopsin that could compare to Strange Fruition, Around My Way and Unforgivable Youth and dare I say anything from The Cool and Food and Liquor. Attacking other rappers just because they suck isn't the way to go, it creates rap beef and it'll make Lupe look like he's trying to sell records, believe it or not, Chief Keef is a REAL gang member that got someone killed and maybe Lupe fears for his life if he were to start some shit with the kid, grow up dude, Lupe has some of the worst fans ever, it's ridiculous.

      Delete
    13. 'Real gang member' yeah, he mom said he was in the house all day behind his computer.

      Guess that's what gangsters do these days.

      Why should Lupe fear his life? there are other threats than one of million gangster rappers who are truly actors.

      Hopsin is irrelevant. Lupe is indulging the same as other rappers in the end of the day except he has slight awareness to some issues in his lyrics. But then again that's what comes with music, it's entertainment and propaganda mind control which cannot be used to spread truth as much as it is designed to spread evil.

      That being said it's pointless to go on about this.

      The difference, it seems, with Hopsin and Lupe is that one has acknowledged that HIPHOP is destroying the youth (primarily black community even though white kids listen to rap and cry at night for not being born black).

      While the one makes a song saying 'FUCK HIPHOP' the other sings about how 'HIPHOP SAVED MY LIFE' to some myspace rapper, inspiring thousands to pick up the mic : ).

      You can go on both ways, yes you can claim Lupe is a better artist, but then again that wasn't my point.

      Being real doesn't necessary mean you're a better ARTIST.

      Nor does it mean (in this case) that you have more knowledge or experience.


      It is clear to me that Lupe is the only with a bit of true knowledge in the mainstream sphere.

      After all.

      ''And plus the real God has been on my side since birth''


      Delete
    14. And I should make it clear, that I do not want Lupe to BEEF with anyone.

      I totally understand, and respect his way of dealing with colleges.

      However it hurts to see the state of not being able to speak out.

      That is all.

  11. Hopsin who??? I listened to his shit and if anything he is more of a gimmick than anything i've heard lately. Rapping satire is just as easy as rapping it for real. Let's see how he does 4 albums deep and how many grammies he gets nominated for. Better yet f*** numbers f*** sales f*** awards let's see his best 16 against lu. I'll find dozens that lupe spits better.. In fact name me a song so I can see if i'm full of sh*t or not. I'm no d*** rider I don't think everything lupe does is the best or wisest but Hopsin... You could of named like 10 other rappers and I would have let it go.... Jump off

    2. I see u found a verse for me to compare haha...... What's real about dissing rappers and then spitting the same shit they do. I have more respect for people who who stay in their lane and let their work speak for itself. Eminent wants his style back anyway... hopsin Haha

      Someone up there said it best dissing hipsters is so Hipster so on that note I'm done with this.

    3. Don't pie eminem comparing hopsin with him. Hopsin starts in his song if the shoe fits wear it and starts attacking types of people But if your saying if the shoe fits wear it doesn't that mean do what your doing. He even says he doesn't like rap. Hopsin = bad rapper. Lupe>>>>hopsin

      Delete
    4. Agreed.... didn't mean to flame Eminem I just meant he already did that wacky style and better, plus contributed awesome meaningful songs. Lupe and Eminem are both better than hopsin. In fact he could have said Eminen and I would let it go cus then he would have a harder case to disprove. I don't know why I let these comments get to me it's just people say the most outrageous things and what worries me the most is what if they aren't trolling and actually mean it.

  21. I like both lupe and hopsin. I think hopsin can rap, but he sounds so bitter in most of his songs that I can't really listen to his albums for too long, I feel negative afterwards.
