Lupe Fiasco is back on his shit again. During an interview with Hot 97′s Peter Rosenberg, Lupe was asked what young MC’s he enjoys listening to. He answered with Young Thug and Big K.R.I.T. but when asked about Kendrick Lamar it opened up a can of worms.
After saying, “I’ve always been a fan of Kendrick. I’m not a nut-hugger like you,” Lupe clarified his stance by saying, “Listen, Kendrick is ill…To me, the whole TDE team is the illest team…Ab-Soul’s on the album, I’m trying to work with SZA…I love the creative collective they got. As an emcee, I wish I had that….Lyrically, no, I don’t think [Kendrick Lamar is the best]. To me, MF DOOM is the best.”
When asked what rappers he thinks are better than Kendrick, Lupe responded with, “On some lyrics–I listen to lyrics–of the young MCs, I think lyrically it’s King Los, it’s Logic….Cassidy.”
Needless to say, Peter Rosenberg was shocked. Peep the full interview which features hints at who will be on Lupe’s next album and his involvement in cancer research.
