Lupe Fiasco rolled by HOT 97’s morning show to chop it up with hosts Peter Rosenberg, Ebro Darden and Laura Stylez on a bunch of topics. Fiasco made sure that his new single “Mission” was the center of dialogue, along with his weareonamission.org cancer awareness campaign. He got inspiration for the movement after his grandmother passed away from cancer.

Aside from the serious topics, Fiasco dove into discussion about his “THOT 97″ freestyle, the transition of New York radio, shameless loving Young Thug, and why he thinks King Los, Logic and Cassidy lyrically top TDE golden child Kendrick Lamar. It was all love, as he made sure to mention that TDE is one of the best crews out right now. He recruited Ab-Soul—along with Ty Dolla $ign, Big K.R.I.T. and Nikki Jean—for his forthcoming Tetsuo & Youth album. Grab your popcorn and press play up top.
