Charging through his press run for his upcoming album, Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1, Lupe Fiasco made a stop by DJ Whoo Kid‘s Shade 45 radio spot recently. In typical passionate fashion, the Chicago native spoke on the need for sexual equality in hip-hop, using Nas‘ “Daughters” and his own single, “Bitch Bad,” as good examples. On the topic of his new song, he revealed that he would love to get Nicki Minaj on there for a remix.
“There was talk of like a remake, just water cooler chatter, it was like, Who would jump on here and kinda murk that, and speak it?” he said. “Hopefully, hopefully. We’ll see, that would be great, that would be fantastic.”
Lupe touched on a wide range of other topics in the discussion, too. He explained that his upcoming LP will be half conscious material, and half “rappity rap” (hence the title), addressed the rising murder rates in his hometown of Chicago, shared his thoughts on the U.S. Government’s gun policies and more.
