"I don't like to just sit down and listen to somebody tell me how much dope they sold or how many times they shot somebody... I like to feed myself nutritious kind of things and for me through the ears the most nutritious things that you can listen to are either songs with no words like jazz, or words that actually have power and meaning behind them which would be reggae and punk."
I really enjoy seeing Lupe do interviews, he always expresses himself well and doesn't come across as full of shit or insipid as some other artistes I've heard. He's just extraordinary overall.
Check out pics of Lupe and Yasiin Bey (formerly Mos Def) at the Vans OTW launch in Berlin last month. (Two of my favs together! *moment of silence to appreciate this*)
