Lupe Fiasco Speaks On Chicago Violence
The "outcast" of Hip Hop, Lupe Fiasco, had a recent interview by The Source. Lupe expresses his thoughts on the 300 plus murders over the summer in Chicago, and the violence amongst the gangs and youth. Watch the interview here for yourself.
I'm not one of those people to criticize what's going on in Chicago, but I can ask one question? How can Hip Hop as a culture bring peace to the streets? Is it lack of programs to prevent violence? Or is it the county or city that has not stepped in with an efficient plan. This ain't back in the the day where we can break dance out issues like Electric Boogaloo.
For 300 people gone in one summer and Chicago is not the murder capital, there's gotta be a new way to bring peace to where there is hell. Tell me what are some ideas or things ypu have seen how Hip Hop has brought peace.
