During a recent visit to Miami, Lupe Fiasco visited Power 96 where he linked up with personality KC Chopz for an in-depth interview that offered a number of revelations. Touching on how many albums he still plans on dropping in his often fiery career, Fiasco goes on to discuss Kanye West and Pharrell’s production sensibilities, calling “Ye a little bit more collaborative and soulful while Pharrell is a little more in a box and futuristic.” Lupe goes on to touch on why despite his Chicago connections did he not link up with G.O.O.D. Music as well as other notable opportunities with the likes of Roc-A-Fella. Finally, he discusses some emcees he calls himself a fan of – noting his affinity for the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Danny Brown and Earl Sweatshirt. Clocking in at just over 16 minutes, Lupe Fiasco is open and candid as he fields a variety of questions.
