HipHopDX: What is the meaning of “cool” is to you?
Lupe Fiasco: Being yourself, not really being worried about what people think. To me, that’s the illest cool to have.
DX: In the last year, what’s the best experience you’ve had with your music?
LF: The touring. Going out there and performing. That’s one of the smaller things that I actually look forward to doing. Going on and jumping on stage and performing for my fans, and seeing their reaction instantly. That’s what music is. If you go back 300 years ago to the symphonies, there was no portable music. You had to come and see the music performed. That’s why you dressed up; it was an event. That was where it started. That’s the most fun – whether it’s 60,000 or a little club, it’s always exciting.
