Lupe Fiasco on MTV's RapFix Live ! [VERY DEEP and INSPIRING!!!]

Lupe was on RapFix Live with Nature and Sway, and did one of the best interviews he has ever done. He thanked Nature for being one of the MC's that taught him how to rap, and also for providing the "Fiasco" part to his rap alias via a song off The Firm album.

He also reveals that the creative process of some songs may be halted in order for him to read a book and become more knowledgeable on the particular subject. He says that process was applied to his next single "Lamborghini Angels", then spits some of the lyrics off the track:
With her eyes to the ceiling and a needle in her brain, She looks back into the crowd, wipes the blood and then explains, How she slipped from this existence to the realm of the deranged, "She'll be coming.." must be halted to reverse what she became, From the looseness of her tongue to the pollution of her aims, To do nothing is barbaric, the solution is humane, You must destory the mind and hopefully retrain, Torture out the wildness and replace it with the tame, Blank slate, when she recovers she won't even know her name, Perfect wife and perfect lover, no resistance, no complaints, May God bless the science if it's cure for the insane, Knew that she shouldn't go to school, but she thought that that should change...
Most importantly, watch as Sway plays a six year old clip of himself and Lupe touring Chicago for an episode of MTV's: My Block. When the video was over, Lupe was in tears because some of the people in the clip have already passed away. He goes on to say that watching the video made him feel helpless because even six years later, nothing has changed about his neighborhood and he knows that some of the kids won't make it out of there.
For people outside of the U.S, HERE is an alternate link to that portion of the interview.
