Lupe Fiasco responds to Fans who say they want the "Old Lu" Back

50 comments:

After responding to some fans on Twitter, who said that they are missing the "old Lu," Lupe wrote the following:

I just feel like a lot of people think they know what's best for an artist UNTIL they start to make art themselves or get involved in it. The forces you gotta satisfy actually making music for sale and also for creative integrity and progression is a tightrope walk.

Some artists find that groove and ride it very well then the global trends change and they find themselves taking a backseat. That's just how life is. But I wasn't into music for solely the sake of selling it or getting my ego stroked by fans.

I'd say most artists in the world make art because it brings them joy of some sort. Once you sacrifice that joy 4 others then things change. So instead of searching 4 this mythical "old Lu" u might be more happy just embracing the "NEW YOU" & maybe this "same Lu" dont fit in that.

9 comments:

After the Streets on Fire, Peace for Hire event in Chicago last night Lupe took to Twitter to state the following:

We would like to thank sincerely all those members of the community that came out to the Strategies For Peace conference last night @ CCICS. It was a very special honor to have Mrs. Cleopatra Pendleton as a part of the conversation with the new youth leaders of the city of Chicago

To see the intellect, passion and bravery of the teenagers on the panel speaking on the roots of violence in their lives was shocking. Shocking because of their realization of the depth of their circumstances and in the revolutionary commitment they have to combatting them.

On April 1st 2013 they want to begin the process of changing those circumstances, Forever. This youth group is using the month of March to plan and formulate major actions within the city of Chicago to begin April 1st until they see radical change in the ways in which the ENTIRE city and EVERYONE in it responds to the violence in their lives.

For this entire month of March #LF will be donating his twitter and facebook to help in spreading information about this developing action. Please follow @LupeFoundation as well for more info in the coming month about how you can take part.

Last night the future of Chicago spoke loud and clear. They asked us to DO and so it must be DONE. #The1stOfApril #NoMoreFoolingAround #CHI
