Grammy-Award winning rapper Lupe Fiasco continued talking about Internet piracy and why he feels bloggers should be held responsible for their actions when they post unauthorized music.
"People are trapped in the culture where music needs to be free and you don't need to pay for it," he told The BoomBox. "I was just at Princeton, speaking at Cornel West's class, and someone asked that. They asked about the relationship between blogs and artists. I told them, at a bare minimum it costs me, literally out of my own pocket, it costs me $3,000 to $4,000 to make a song. It costs me about $700 to $800 to make a freestyle. I'm giving you that."
