On the heels of his departure from Twitter, Lupe Fiasco opened up about his lack of desire to be relevant today in an article posted by Billboard yesterday (January 15).

“I don't want to be relevant today,” Lupe Fiasco says in the interview. “I don't want to be the go-to guy for the club song or to speak on all the dumb shit that's going around. I'm happy being that somewhat sophisticated, overly deep weird guy making powerful music – but just two or three degrees away from the center of attention. There is a new generation speaking to a new generation, so you have a Kendrick Lamar and a J. Cole and the other people who are the new Lupes. I don't have the same lingo. I don't sip lean or smoke weed. I can't compete with a Wiz Khalifa for the attention of a 12-year old.”
