Lupe Fiasco speaks on his nomination for Best Rap Album at this year's Grammys, and shares who he thinks is going to win.
Lupe Fiasco, never one to be different,Â has done a string of strange things as of late, including deleting his Twitter, getting kicked off stage for repeating the same lyrics,Â and announcing the cancellation of Food & Liquor 2: Part 2.Â While there has been little explanation for any of these incidents, Lupe recently spokeÂ on his Grammy nomination.
WithÂ the Grammys going down this weekend, Lupe Fiasco will be in attendanceÂ along with a bunch of other nominated rappers including Drake, 2 Chainz, Nas, The Roots and more. Those are also some of his competitors for the title of Best Rap Album, which Lupe is positive he won't win. Â
Lupe spokeÂ to Jenny Boom Boom backstage at the Grammy Foundation's "Play It Forward" concert, and explainedÂ how being nominated for a GrammyÂ comes along with being "Lupe."
"Well you know, that just kinda comes along with the package of being me, that's kinda what we do, be nominated. But every album, since Food & Liquor, my first official release, has been nominated for Best Rap Album at the Grammys," Lupe said of his nomination.Â
When the rapper was asked if he thought he'd win, he said without hesitation, "No.Â Clearly I won't," he said beforeÂ listingÂ those he's nominated with. He went on toÂ reveal who he thinks will take home the win--"I think they gunna give it to Nas, to be honest."
In addition to this, the outspokenÂ rapperÂ barely addressed his cancelled album, simply saying,Â "Cancelled. That's it."Â
Listen to the audio from the interview below, where Lupe is accompanied by theÂ Australian artist he's currentlyÂ working with, Guy Sebastian.
