Lupe Fiasco Doesn’t Want 400 Million Dollars

Posted By on February 26, 2010

     Lupe Fiasco recently sat down to talk about sucess, his image and explained why he does not try to strive for, or want, the level of success that say Jay-Z has. Besides the popularity, Lupe Fiasco also talks about the loyal following of fans. ''There's a misunderstanding with my fanbase,'' he said in an interview. ''People [at Warner] feel they know my fans more than I do. They want me to step out of my comfort zone and step into theirs. I don't have necessarily the celebrity success they want me to have but it's more social success and being able to speak at a college about world affairs."

     "That's a success, to me. 'I don't want to be Jay-Z and be worth $400 million and perform on every awards show. It's getting in touch with somebody who needs to improve their self-esteem. As opposed to driving a Bentley and putting some chains on.''
