A break from the paper it means do you identify more
With what's being made or the maker?
Lupe is comparing someone who focusing on material things, and those who know the history behind things and make a point to educate themselves, like those who realize that GW Carver developed peanut butter.
“A break from the paper” can mean a break from materialism; this can cause a person to seek different avenues of fulfillment
