Crain's Chicago Business did a feature where Lupe sits down with Naomi Beckwith and he speaks about an informal circle of six people that he relies on to help shape his success as a creative. Those people include:

The Mentor: Michael Ferro Jr.
The Curator: Naomi Beckwith
The Risk Taker: Aitor Throup
The Analyst: Sky Gellatly
The Philanthropist: Kenna Zemedkun
The Internet Guru: Brian "DJ Busy" Dackowski

Hit the links to read what Lupe had to say about his relationship with each individual. After the jump, Lupe speaks about Michael Ferro Jr. and Naomi recalls how an idea involving ballons at an art show nourished the creativity of a 12 year old autistic boy in Chicago!
