Gemstones who is signed to “1st & 15th” which is Lupe Fiasco’s Label has recently been interviewed by sixshot.com where he has been asked about how Lupe kind of gets put in a box with Kanye and Pharrell, that whole hipster, skateboarding thing. “They say if you wanna know where you’re going in life then look who you’re around. They say birds of a feather flock together. That’s who I roll with and that’s who I break bread with.
I make similar music but when I drop the album I don’t know if that’s where they’ll put me. Not that that’s a bad place to sit because Kanye, Pharrell, and Lupe are all real successful. I would hope that they would sit me alone because I wanna be different. I wanna be left of everybody else. If they’re left then I wanna go right. I’m my own entity but I would be cool with a Kanye, Lupe, or Pharrell box.”
