The Baltimore Sun recently caught up with Lupe. Here's an excerpt from their conversation:

("Lupe Fiasco mansplains misogyny on counterproductive" single, read Spin Magazine's headline.) More than a year later, Fiasco, who headlines Rams Head Live on Sunday, says he wishes he had never written the song in the first place.
"The people who hated it were the people you would think would be the ones that would, if not champion it, at least show you some respect for it," Fiasco said on the phone last week from his tour bus. "I think that's the Lupe curse. No matter what I do, I'm always going to get beat up for it."
