Lupe Fiasco's MIT: Academic Rap
2:30:18Wasalu Jaco p.k.a. Lupe Fiasco is a rapper, producer, entrepreneur, philanthropist, (martial) artist, (and more), and is spending the 2022-2023 school year at MIT as an MLK Visiting Scholar. He was kind enough to take some time to talk about his goals for the upcoming year, where he envisions rap going and its interplay with academia and institutions, and the fundamentals of his craft. Talking with Lupe was incredibly on many levels, and I look forward to connecting with him again at the end of the year and re-examining this discussion then.
