Video: Lupe Fiasco channeling pre-Food & Liquor vibe on "ratchet" Tetsuo & Youth!



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!

  3. Doubt it was even about money... it's more like despite all the good that he was "preaching" on F&LII nobody bought it nor did they apply it... so he's going back to what got them hooked from the go. Be about your business, because people will claim they wanna see you change the world and then watch you try to change it by yourself.

    1. Oh how ironic you talk about one person making a mistake and you do the same. You should have wrote, "suicide or else he'd be DEAD." Idiots!
