    • Lupe: When I retire, I want to sleep away on a positive note. What you put out into the world comes back to you.

    • Lupe: People have their morals, but morals aren't concrete. People think because I'm a Muslim that I pray five times a day, but you're never going to see that on a day-to-day basis. People fluctuate.

    • Lupe: Well, I was born Muslim, so Islam plays a part in my life and everything I do. I don't go to clubs, I don't drink, I don't smoke - the whole groupie situation is shut down.

    • Lupe Fiasco: Cause it's a classic. Like, people study-you study the masters, you know what I'm saying? Everybody that's rapping studied someone to learn how to rap. They had a rapper who was they favorite rapper that they wanted to be like and wanted to rap like, know what I'm saying? For me, I just look at it like I studied a masterpiece. I modeled my album after a masterpiece; and not song for song; not line for line; not beat for beat. It was more-for me it was like mood for mood. The way he set the mood on that album to me was just like incredible. And at the time in my life-like, I fell in love with 'It Was Written' when I was seventeen/eighteen-a very impressionable time-so I was like I love that album. That's my favorite Hip Hop album, so it's like why not base your album on 'It Was Written?'

    • Lupe Fiasco: When I retire, I want to step away on a positive note. What you put out into the world comes back to you. You actually change the world with what you do. I want to put some good in the world.
