Video: Lupe Fiasco's Speech @ the New Orleans Jazz Fest


Check out the speech that Lupe gave before performing 'Words I Never Said' @ the New Orleans Jazz Fest on Friday.

We need books over bombs. Fuck Bin Laden. When you gonna rebuild New Orleans? Forget new drones. When you gonna rebuild Detroit? When are you gonna invest in our future? When are you gonna stop investing in the warfare, when are you gonna stop investing into political tyranny, when are you gonna stop investing in imperialism and invest in the future of humanity?

  1. Lupe is a wannabe revolutionary who will never be satisfied. He has the means but is he exhausting his means to come to the end he rants about? "complain about the gloom but why don't you pick a broom up"

  3. How else is a musical artist supposed to revolutionize? He didn't conform when demanded. He fought the "man" as long as he could but still managed to put himself in his latest album. He raps about real shit. He appeals to all races, both genders and to many different countries. He refuses to dumb it down and rap about cars, asses and glorified vodka (unless it's all part of a metaphor, of course). What else can he do but speak to everybody around the world who wants to listen?

    Quit being a wannabe blogger. =J
