Lupe Fiasco plans to stay away from violent video games, cartoons, music and other things.


Goals. 🙏🏾 #YaBasta (You still can get these 🤚🏾🤚🏾🤚🏾🤚🏾🤚🏾 in Street Fighter tho also the new Devil May Cry and Death Stranding will be summarily exempt!) #TheTranquiloLaws are coming into effect.

This is the second time in a month or so that Lupe said he'll be turning over a new leaf. In July, he said he'll no longer be doing features or rap with another MC. He said so after somebody said it would be incredible if he made a song with Nas.

Do you think Lupe staying away from violent content is a good thing or is it pretty much meaningless? He does have some exceptions. 

“But what about your sword Lupe?” We come from different worlds. The things I do seem strange and weird to you because I’m not from the same place you are. The lessons I learned and the things I’ve seen have shaped me different. You may associate the opposite of violence with peace. That is not so to me. The opposite of violence is giving assistance, being helpful or building something. It is an action. Peace is a sense of a state of static being. One can be peacefully violent as one can be violently helpful. Actual Violence has a purpose but most depictions of violence in our modern consumptive condition have no purpose. In regards to my use of the sword: There are two common approaches to the practice of the katana (samurai sword) Satsuninto (the murdering blade) or Katsujinken (the live giving blade) they both refer to the same tool, the sword. However the mentality of each approach is much more different than the other. I aspire toward Katsujinken and I also practice something much deeper called “Kotoba To Ki” where the sword is actually a pen and the cuts are actually pen strokes. What the uninitiated and cloudy mind sees as a series of violent cuts and slashes is actually a poem being written. Do not try to understand this unless you are willing to undertake this. It will only complicate your life. 🙏🏾
