Kanye West aka “the Louis Vuitton Don” and Lupe Fiasco aka “Hip Hop’s Whiz Kid,” radiated the stage at the United Center along with N-E-R-D and Rihanna during the Glow in the Dark show… or so I heard. Unfortunately I didn’t get to see the show. Tickets were sold out before I could “Kick, Push” and go buy some. My hookups at the label didn’t even have any extra tickets lying around! But fortunately, I found a way to finagle my way backstage with a camera crew to sit down with Mr. Fiasco himself to ask him a few questions that have been lingering in my mind.
With interruptions from Chris Brown and Pharrell Williams, along with Fiasco’s occasional departure to tell his crew and N-E-R-D to quiet down while we were talking, this was a Q&A that I’ll never forget.
Check it out for yourself.
