Text Quotes
I always say that you define what success is to yourself  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) Fear is such a weak emotion that’s why I despise it  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) My problem is I’m peaceful, and I believe in the people  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) You know what I had a problem with? The war - the war in Afghanistan  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) The biggest terrorist is Obama  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) Your child’s future was the first to go with budget cuts  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) I went from MC to being MS, this microphone controller is the motivational speaker  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) I think that American presidents, that position in itself, as well as American foreign policy, it has terrorism in it. CIA agents going to overthrow certain governments - they’re using terrorist tactics. They’re not going in there like, ‘Hey, you wanna have some cake?’  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) I don’t really get the same kinda romance that I would get from, like, jazz. And even to a lesser extent to rock ‘n roll. Rock ‘n roll has a romance to it - how can I put it? A very vulgar romance, but still a romance; whereas hip hop has more facade  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) I have yet to see someone attack Obama over his report card. A lot of people I talk to from both sides of the fence are like, ‘Well, what about this economy? What about these incidents?’ There are still no answers except time, but time is the answer for everything  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) I look at people like Picasso and Da Vinci and Escher and Miles Davis, and they’ll write or paint that one definitive masterpiece of maybe 50 that they have that’s really trying to go outside the box, trying to do something that’s tough. And then when you accomplish it, you look back and go, ‘Yeeaaaah - masterpiece.’  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) I love Obama, and I love the fact that it’s a black president of the United States of America, but he’s not the first black president. Robert Mugabe is a black president, too, so let’s not get to talking about precedents being set  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) The only person who really impressed me with making new music is Cudi. Everyone else seems to be jumping on the same music, the producer-made stuff, but the one person that’s made new music to me is Cudi  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) I was literally told for ‘The Show Goes On’ that I shouldn’t rap too deep. I shouldn’t be too lyrical. It just needs to be something easy on the eyes. Like a record company telling Picasso that we don’t need these abstract interpretations of life, where people have to sit down and look at it and break it down  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) In Chicago, you have an absence of strong family units, and that absence gets filled by gangs. You have a failure in the school system, after-school programs and other social programs to help keep kids off the streets. Amnesty International speaks to that in some way, by keeping these issues in the forefront  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) Oh yeah, I’m literally walking through my house now looking down and there are maybe, like, 15 pairs on the floor. For real. Real talk. It’s just simplicity. They’re something I wear every day. Before I got a deal with them, I was wearing some type of Vans all the time. I would just order them by the box, like, 10 at a time  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) With Australian audiences, there’s a certain level of education - as far as how much access and exposure they have to music from various genres. So when you do ‘Big Day Out’ and there are all these different musical acts, you see the same people in your crowd that were there for a completely different artist  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) I don’t mind payin’ for the police and for streets and sanitation, or road work, bridges, trains, food subsidies and welfare. But I don’t wanna pay for bombs to fight proxy wars in the middle of nowhere against enemies in the night  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) Everybody has their opinion on what’s ‘real,’ and what’s they choose to listen to and their personal preference. Whether they’re 2 years old or 200 years old. And people can listen to whatever they want  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) Da Pak was a group out of Chicago. It was a put-together group. We actually met for the first time at this showcase. They were like ‘Yo, you should do a song together.’ So we did. It just so happened that the name of the song was ‘Wolf Pak.’ They said, ‘Y’all should be a group called Da Pak, and here’s a record deal.’  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) Before my father would open up a karate school in a particular neighborhood, he’d clean up the block - kick all the drug dealers and gang bangers off the block. My father was very clear: ‘I’ve got guns too, and I’ll kill you just as much as a rival gang would.’ And he meant it. He was a man of many facets and complexities  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) All the big revolutions, whether it’s the Industrial Revolution, the Arab Spring, those changes happened by economic and social shifts brought about by the people’s voices, and those things weren’t voted for. Most of our changes today are brought about through technology, not by voting  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) 360 deals are the new things of the industry. It’s not about selling records; it’s about selling T-shirts, getting a piece of your publishing, getting a piece of your touring, and all these other kind of properties  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) Some people are the greatest people on Earth with good hearts and will get in the studio and make the most negative music in the world for the sake of success. That’s what the music business does to you. That’s what capitalism does to you  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) The story of ‘Lasers’ is my story. I didn’t have to look too far to get subject matter for this record; it was stuff that was happening to me  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) The economical policies that are instigated really makes you think that the American government is a bunch of evil bastards. So just because you’re black, you’re still representing that government, and when Obama came into office he enacted the same policies that we would critique other presidents for  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) Some stuff I don’t even put out. I’ll just be home, happy, creating something for myself, and then ball it up and throw it in the trash. It’s less about trying to prove something or get on somebody’s list or make a fan happy or make a hater mad or convert a non-believer. That’s not the case for me anymore  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) People don’t understand that where I come from, everyone is either a convict, been in jail, been in a gang, is a hooligan of some sorts, but those are my brothers, my family and the people that I travel with. Those are the people that I roll with.  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) That should be the measure of success for everyone. It’s not money, it’s not fame, it’s not celebrity; my index of success is happiness.  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes) If you want to relate me to the newer cats, let’s go. Let’s go line for line and bar for bar. If it’s all about spitting and metaphors and MCing and lyrics and entendres, I will eat 99 percent of you dudes up.  (Lupe Fiasco Quotes)
