Seeing things like this New Zealand piece on Lupe Fiasco really makes it clear how far hip hop has gone. In this clip, Mr. Fiasco says he is close to retiring and will be leaving rap to pursue the literary game -as in writing novels. We all know every rapper that claims they are retiring, never really do, but in Lupe’s case he actually seems to have the gusto to do it. He also says his final album is complete and is waiting on his label Atlantic to release it.
