Last year, Lupe Fiasco broke through with an infectious little skateboarding anthem called "Kick, Push." (Maybe you've heard of it?) But Lupe hasn't had much time to skate lately, what with traveling the world performing and laying down tracks for his sophomore album, The Cool. Luckily, we got a chance to chat with Lupe. Read on as Lupe tells us what he was like in high school, what's up with his new group with Kanye and Pharrell, and what he thinks is cool!
Man, you've been crazy busy lately! How do you get around -- tour bus, or airplane?
Most of my schedule is like a show in Cali, then a show in Paris, and then a show in New Orleans, so I have to fly.
Are you an aisle person or a window person?
Depends on how long the flight is. If it’s a good six hours, I usually like the window, or I do the middle, too. If I'm between two people I know, then it's not bad. You gotta take it over 'cause then you can do the double armrest.
