LA Times Mag: Lupe Fiasco takes Hip Hop to the next level by stripping it Down


Lupe Fiasco discusses being different, his fans, Lasers and more with the LA Times Mag.

“My last two albums were more metaphoric,” says Fiasco, “This album is to the point—it has teeth. It’s gloves off, punching people in the face, knocking them out.” The idea, he says, is to hold on to that inner skate kid who doesn’t care what others think. It’s a tricky balance for an artist who fills arenas but knows how to ride the edge.

“Picasso said he worked his whole life to paint like he was five years old,” says Fiasco. “His early work is very simple but a masterpiece of shading and color. I’m not saying I’m a master artist. But it takes a whole other level of bravery to do something simple, especially in a world this complex.”
