Lupe Fiasco Explains What Makes Chicago Culture Great

Posted by , May 2, 2016 at 09:22am

Lupe Fiasco made an appearance on the 'Chicago' episode of "Parts Unknown with Anthony Bourdain."


Anthony Bourdain's CNN show "Parts Unknown" has taken him to far-flung parts of the world to better understand the local food and the people who make it. In the episode that aired Sunday night, he headed to Chicago, where he briefly sat down with Lupe Fiasco to learn more about what makes Chicago great.

“It’s a beautiful place," Lupe said. "It’s a genuinely beautiful place. You have to redefine what beauty is to you. When you go to different neighborhoods and it’s really bad. And even in that there’s still a beauty in the people.”

He continues: “Then just from a cultural front we got everything here. If you want capoeira, we got capoeira. If you want house music we got that too. If you want straight finance and you want to just be a stock market baron we got that too. If you want some of the best food you’ll ever find we got that too. So we’re a crossroads, and we’ve picked up a lot of little DNA and things from different places on all fronts."

Some nice shots of Chicago and its cuisine interspersed throughout the minute-long video. Watch it above.
