Music is my LIFE, ha not really much else to say. Hiphop is my passion no doubt but, love all kinds of music from John Coltrane and Miles Davis to The Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix to Common and Mikkey Halsted to George Clinton and Daft Punk, and everything in between. Lupe has always been my #1 though growin up in Chicago that type of music influenced me as an emcee. Favorite chi hiphop groups would be Crucial Conflict, Do or Die, Cool Kids, Typical Cats, All Natural, man the list goes on ha so many would take forever to name them. Lupe is on a whole nother level lyrically than anyone to grab the mic in a LONG TIME, and his message is so uplifting-I DON'T ASSOCIATE MYSELF WITH PEOPLE WHO DO NOT ASSOCIATE THEMSELVES WITH LUPE.
