Its crazy to see someone who kinda thinks like you. Ive been waiting for hip hop to change...this is exciting times. I hope everyone out there hears what your saying really and not just listening to the beat. Ive bought like 8 albums in my life..and on the 2nd The Cool was my first hip hop albulm...Its not easy being a young black male, but things are looking up.

NO B/S BOY said...

LUPE YOU are the MAN! Please read this whole thing. Since the cool came out it has not left my ears. BUt YO, about this interview. U said u question everything but the Quaran. As an intelligent man, u and i both know...u cant say u leave one thing unquestioned. U question the Bible and Christianity but u dont question ISlam, the religion that has maniacs killing innocent people all over the world. Excuse me, not maniacs...fundamentalists. The Quaran does preach peace but thats because its a combination of Judaism and Christianity. Muhammed made up islam and taught it to uneducated tribesmen. There are many historical innacuracies and contradictions in the quaran. The jihad, or warlike, verses of the quaran come at the end and contradict the other peaceful parts. These are the verses that tell muslims to kill the infidels where they stand. The fundamentalists that live by this consider all muslims who do not live the same to be infidels. If u go talk to the president of iran, a FUNDAMENTAL muslim, Lupe, he will call u an infidel and wish u dead. Islam is more a social movement than a religion. It has held back the arab people for centuries. The middle east is one of the few areas of the world that has never gone through an enlightenment, renaissance, revolution or any other such change hence the barbaric laws that allow for stoning and beheading. Look up some of the laws in Iran....its scary. See, cause the koran is law in muslim cultures cuz they believe it to be the word of god when really its just the word of muhammed who said it was god (allah). In muslim culture, its ok for a man to have sexual encounters with a boy until the boy is 11, after that it is considered homosexual and both the man and boy can be killed for it. WUt? wut a messed up law? wuts up with that? The koran is filled with all kinds of screwy things like this because muhammed wanted to please everyobody. he wanted all to accept and follow islam. The koran says the only way to surely get into heaven is to die in the name of allah. He said if u die for islam u get 70 virgins right? nice? sign me up. wait...wut about the gays hell never get them to join. hmmm, muhammed thought of that...thats y it also says in the koran that if young boys are your preference...u get them instead of the virgins. TRUE STORY. Originally, muhammed used the religion to get desert nomads to help him raid caravans out of mecca, the city that called him crazy and threw him out. As every word in the koran is supposed to be from allah it forces its followers to follow it strictly and ask no questions. Even you Lupe, it has limited u in your thought because u said u will not question it. Islam is a political movement masquerading as a religion. It was created by a liar and it degrades women. The goal of islam is to kill all unbelievers until islam is the religion of the entire world.THATS ME DROPPIN SOME KNOWLEDGE. Im not sayin u shouldnt call yourself a muslim, but perhaps an "american muslim" because to me its obvious there needs to be some reform of islamic thinking and that it can no longer exist as a peaceful AND warlike religion. Lupe dont be offended. These are facts ive reserched. But then again u never know....but thats exactly wut im saying...u never know....thats y i dont think a free thinking child of god should say that there is sumthing in this world he will not question. I think its time we question this religion that has killed so many and helped so few.

I'm disregarding the last post because everyone is entitled to their own beliefs and people need to learn to disagree without being openly disagreeable. As far as the interview it was nice to see Lupe speak on a lot of crucial issues, gave us a chance to get a sneak peak inside of his mind and see what his feelings are on certain issues as an articulate and intelligent person. Respect Lupe for that. Hip Hop is changing and I won't lie I have been playing The Cool on my computer non-stop since I got it. I've never done that with any other album. I'm not even interested anymore about what other rappers like Lil Wayne and Lil Boosie and all the Lil whatevers out there. Lupe is the truth. Let's hope lupEND is not his last solo project. Peace, love and be Cool.

P.S. thanks to who ever posted the video.

I definitely have to agree with the_geeks. It's just mind boggling sometimes to listen to his lyrics or read interviews and think "i said almost the same thing yesterday" or something to that effect. I've been waiting on a new hip hop artist to love since the death of Pac and bam! there goes Lupe!

I'm glad y'all found this interview and put it up. Its a good...no wait GREAT representation of his thoughts/concerns without a beat. Maybe...hopefully someone that may not necessarily approve of hip hop will run across this and give lupe a second thought. Or maybe i'll just watch it over and over and try to soak up his genius (lol). Either way thanks for posting this!!!

"no b/s boy", you should be ashamed of yourself, you really should, speaking such blatant lies with no remorse, I almost would blame your parents if I didnt know it was your own mind that curses you with such untruthfulness and stupidity. the Qur'an and the hadith are both against ANY form of homosexxuality, it is considered illegal by islamic law at any age, the Qur'an says that anyone who doesnt harm you, is not allowed in any way to be harmed, the Qur'an is not inaccurate on one subject, while the Bible is completely wrong on countless subjects, a worldwide flood? only the corrupted mind of paul could think of such nonsense, Allah drowning the world for the sins of Ibrahim's(pbuh) people? no. the way you lie, makes me wonder you you dont feel ashamed? how? do you think its because youre doing the right hting by lying? though youre not,anand though your corrupting your own soul and believing the devil? may Allah open your eyes before you die in such a corrupted state.

the Qur'an was Allah's, God's final Testament, after the Torah and the NT. Jesus was a prophet of Allah, no god of his own, a slave of Allah, as he was caleld in the Bible, may peace be upon him.

Muhammad sallalahu alayhi wasalam, is the final Prophet of Allah, directly after Jesus.

to the Christians who believe in God and the Last Day, I strongly urge you to not end up corrupted and poisoned like this man here, and study Islam, study the holy Qur'an, read only the first chapter, and see how Allah will choose the good people and lead them to Islam.

Subhan'Allah. Glory be to God.
