Rap-Up TV: Lupe Fiasco Sounds Off on Lil’ Kim vs. Nicki Minaj, Odd Future

In the third and final part of our exclusive interview with Lupe Fiasco, the 29-year-old rapper shares his thoughts on the Lil’ Kim-Nicki Minaj beef, saying the rap divas should squash their differences. “It’s stupid,” he laughed. “They need to jump in the booth and do some songs together.”

He also gave his stamp of approval to hip-hop newcomer Lil B. “I’m always a big fan of Lil B. He’s the little homie,” he said. “Anything that I can help to support his situation I do, whether it’s as simple as tweeting him or shouting him out in interviews. He’s a dude that has a super talent, and just a lot of initiative.”

Tyler, the Creator and his group Odd Future are on the Chi-town MC’s radar as well. “They got a lot of potential, so it’s interesting to see how it’s gonna turn out for them,” said Lupe after seeing the rap crew perform on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.”

Also filling up Lupe’s iPod these days are Frank Ocean, Slaughterhouse, Kid Cudi, Diggy Simmons, and B.o.B. “The commercial side of [hip-hop] is starting to repeat [itself],” explained Lupe, “but for the most part [they're] still some good MCs out there, good lyrics, good songs.”

    @pretty, It’s pretty evident that you are delusional as well. Thanks for your short contradictory dissertation. Ms. Plastic? So, I’m guessing that older pictures of Nicki was the work of Adobe Photoshop, perhaps? I would rather Lupe keep making good music, flop all over the place and stay true to himself along the way instead of conforming into what society wants him to be, which was exactly what Nicki has done. Please tell me that you’re on her payroll for defending her cause you’re doing such a great job; however, proofreading wouldn’t hurt.

    Lil kim either needs to release tracks that aren’t related to nicki or shut the fuck up. Only she regain her title as queen, and she won’t do it by riding Nicki’s dick

    Good to see Lu mess with Slaughterhouse, The Cool Kids & The Roots & Nas still! He’s right about the state of Hip-Hop too it’s good & starting to get a little back to the lyrics again with people like Slaughterhouse, J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, etc.

    He’s right about Nicki and Kim… it is stupid. I’m not a fan of either of them, really. I was a fan of Nicki at first, but she sold out…fake body and all.
    Love Lupe though <3
