Fact Checkin' Your Fav Artist's Wikipedia Pages

I thought this was a pretty cool idea... instead of doing a traditional interview, these guys read through artists' wikipedia pages WITH the artist. It's a fun concept, because sometimes the artist and the wiki page seem so far apart, and now they are TOGETHER. And sometimes there are INACCURACIES. Rarely though, despite what your history teachers might tell you...

Here is one vid with Lupe Fiasco, where we learn he used to do karate and listens to Foreigner and Queen:

A bit long winded, but fun! More can be found by following this unfortunate
ly awkward URL:

How accurate do you think our wikipedia page is???
