    Default Lupe Fiasco a BlackBerry user?

    So I was listening to this Lupe Fiasco interview on YouTube where he was talking about his album, news, and various other subjects.

    For those of you that don't know, Lupe Fiasco is an American rapper from Chicago who is famous for songs like Kick Push, Show Goes On, Words I never Said, Around My Way, Superstar, etc and is basically a rapper who actually has substance in his music.

    Anyway, towards the end of the interview, the reviewer asks him "this or that" questions and this comes up:

    Interviewer: iPhone or Android?
    Lupe Fiasco: Neither!
    Interviewer: What you got BlackBerry!?
    Lupe Fiasco: BlackBerry all day! I'm riding until the wheels-until the screen falls off!

    I love how my favorite artist is a BlackBerry user lol and I find it funny that after he dismissed iPhone and android windows phone wasn't even an alternative. Here's the link to the full interview below if you're a Lupe fan yourself or just want to hear him say it. Note: It comes around the 14:30 mark.

    It's true...I saw the interview also. In that same video, seem to remember him making a statement about "riding till the wheels fall off" or something like that. I was wondering if he meant he won't get a new phone until it's completely nonfunctional, or if he's going to be faithful to RIM until they no longer exist.

    Inside I was hoping it's the latter.

    I would probably use Strange Fruition or ITAL, those are my favorites but the whole album is good. Damn I should've had my BB out when he signed my Food and Liquor II album lol

    Interesting...not only is Lupe a Berry user...he also has a VERY entertaining verse about a particular Cupertino organization on this song of his that I heard today for the first time:






    Here's the lyrics to his first verse:

    Standing in line for the new one
    Not the black, but the blue one
    And I don't even know what it do, son
    But Steve Jobs said that it's too fun
    Fun in abundance is what I need
    It's cold out here, put my arms in the sleeves
    I'll probably lose my place if I leave
    But I really need to pee
    If I do it right here they'll see
    Makes you wonder, how do snipers
    Marathon bikers
    Next time: diapers
    They say it has all new features
    Faster processors and much better speakers
    Great for kids, a necessity for teachers
    For work or home, a revolutionary way of being alone
    I mean, should we really get along?
    Hey what's the matter, just tell it to your phone
    Cupertino heart with Chinese parts
    Built by the poor, but designed by the smart
    They opening the door so you go
    On your mark, get ready, set, buy
    Imagine a world where everything starts with an 'i'
    But it still ends with a die
    Probably got an app for it, that you could try
    From the iClouds, right into the great Wi-Fi
    Siri, can iGod really hear me?
    "Does not compute - can you repeat more clearly?"
    "Woaaah"

    Lol yea I love that song its hilarious how he talks about materialism in general. He also goes on to talk about things like Nike and McDonalds and how people buy things strictly to show off.

    I saw this video too! I had to rewind it make sure I heard correctly! lol I love that he uses a Blackberry. I've always respected Lupe because he's not afraid to be himself or speak his mind, no matter if its unpopular opinion.

    Its also cool to see so many Blackberry users who are Lupe fans!!

    Jay-Z had a 9900 in one of his commercials. His wife Beyonce also has the Porsche Design Blackberry. Only a blackberry addict would spot this lol! Its around the 6 sec. mark:
