Continuing his radio run in Houston, Lupe stopped by 97.9 The Box. He spoke to JJ about stepping away from politics on Tetsuo & Youth and just focusing on the music. He also discussed suicidal thoughts during the making of Lasers and the positive response he's seen from the message in the album.
He went on to describe Tetsuo & Youth as "ratchet" and compared it to the gangsta records he made before he dropped Food & Liquor. He reassured that the positive messages are still present, and referenced the content on "Old School Love" as an example. They also discussed what has to happen for the violence in Chicago to stop and he listed some songs, including a few of his own, that he considers classics. Check it out above!
