Hip Hop Panel

When Lupe made his way to the microphone, he was immediately bombarded by the backpack, cultural conservatives with questions as to how he feels about being a 'conscious rapper'. Witty though he was, he answered with a question, "Do you think Jeezy and 50 Cent are conscious artists?" to which the questioner replied, "No." He then stated that he feels that consciousness is an awareness of your surroundings and that Jeezy and 50 are very aware of their own. Whereas Lupe says he talks about the surroundings as they are, Jeezy and 50 embrace them.
