Video: Talib Kweli and DJ Whoo Kid talk about Lupe Fiasco's outspoken history!



Talib Kweli paid a visit to DJ Whoo Kid at Shade 45 recently. He talked about trying different things as an artist, touring with Macklemore, Jay-Z dropping a verse on the "Get By" remix and more.

At the 13:45 mark, Lupe is brought up when they're discussing political statements made by rappers. Talib says that he agreed with Lupe for the most part, and Whoo Kid noted that Lupe stepped away from politics in their most recent interview. Check out the video above!

  2. Man, I think it's time somebody just said it: Legitimate Lupe News has officially reached an all time low. The "News" on this site has been reduced to other people mentioning Lupe in passing. Sigh.

    2. Yes. But what I'm saying is that now this kind of stuff is all I ever find on Lupe anywhere. He's my favorite rapper, and I actually google him at least once a day to see if there's anything going on with him. 99% of the time– nothin'. Let's face it. His time in the limelight is over. I know most artists have their 15 minutes or whatever, and that's how things go, but I believe, as I'm sure many do, that Lupe deserves far more recognition than he gets.

    3. There's nothing to post because he's busy. He is in the studio working on the album. Be patient.

    4. You can find news about Kanye West, Drake and Jay-Z, even Nas, on a daily basis. Google them any day and people are writing about them because, on varying scales, they have a great deal of relevancy. Lupe does not have that anymore. Naturally, when the album drops, there will be some buzz, but it will be short lived. Just calling it like it is.
