I posted a pic that was taken during this interview a few days ago. Now here we have the full interview that Lupe gave for Tone Deaf TV in Melbourne. Above he talks about getting political on his new single, "Words I Never Said," addressing issues such as 9/11, manufactured foods, budget cuts and more. - Above is the 1st part, 3 more parts below!
Lupe talks about the crossover between hip hop and rock/metal acts, the difficulties in getting his new album "Lasers" out and why he calls it the "people's album."
Lupe talks about taking his rock approach onto the BIG stage this time at the BIG DAY OUT, playing in his post punk band Japanese Cartoon and his other business interests like his fashion labels.
With Jim Murray wrapping up the interview, Lupe talks about his first love of Benny Goodman, jazz and soul as an timeless artform today.
