Q & A with Lupe Fiasco

Click Link to Read the Entire Interview

Knowxone: Peace, Peace. So, is this your first time in Hawaii?

Lupe: Yes.

K: What places did you get a chance to check out since you’ve been on the island?

L: [We] went to the Pali View [Lookout], Wahiawa and a few places on the East side of the island.
K: Word. So you know Ian from Kicks/HI pretty good, right?

L: Yeah.

K: How did you guys form that relationship?

L: Well, when he first opened St. Alfred in Chicago, you know, I went in and paid a visit to the store and he was there. I went to say “What up.” We talked for a few minutes and found out we both knew the same people, and we just clicked. The store sort of became my new hangout.

K: Have you always been into the streetwear scene? And how did you get introduced to it?

L: Yeah, actually about like 2003-ish I went to Undefeated in LA. I was just looking for some new shoes, and I was like “Damn. They got different colors in these?”

K: So just from that experience, that was it?

L: Yeah. Fasho.

Thanks for putting the interview up on your site. If it's true on the whole aspect of "no more recorded music," then it's a loss on the Hip-Hop industry AND culture. But he's also a 'business, man." Can't knock his hustle, but it's a shame.
At least drop some mixtapes.
