Confirming his plans to climb Africa's Mount Kilimanjaro this fall, Lupe Fiasco has revealed his thoughts and fears of going through with the charity-based journey.
Lupe joked about his plans if the mission goes wrong.
"Hell, yeah, [I'm worried!]" Fiasco said of the 19,000-foot hike. "[If things go bad out there], everybody's dying...I'll go psychopath, freak out and murder everyone for the sake of none of us suffering! It would be like the ending of a Stephen King movie, by the time the rescue helicopter comes," he quipped. But [Justin] Timberlake fans shouldn't worry. "I wouldn't euthanize Justin unless he was really suffering." (NY Daily News)
