Hip-Hop Rumors: Lupe Fiasco Facing Label Issues AGAIN?!

Here we go again. Lupe Fiasco is claiming to be having issues with his record label, Atlantic Records. Lupe says that he has yet to record anything for the follow up to his 2006 debut, “Food & Liquor II,” and that his planned fourth album is being stalled because of politics over at the label. In an interview with AOL’s the Boom Box, Lupe had this to say on record about the matter:

“The ‘Lupe [Fiasco’s Food & Liquor II]’ album is [coming out] hopefully. It’s not on me. It’s not done yet. I’m waiting on my record company, ain’t nothing changed. Same business, it’s on them.”

Maybe the fans can once again gather outside of Atlantic Records and force them to release his next album, like they did with Lasers. Occupy Atlantic Records, anyone?!

    While I respect your comment Q, I disagree. This is the problem with hip-hop rap….Variety. Most of the mainstream, is on Racks, Tramps, Brick City Chick, Trap, Beating the *ussy up and a whole lot of same $hit that got Nigg*s shooting up New Year’s eve parties. Lupe does thinking mans music and his music is a reflection of the times we live in (other than HOOD scenario) I respect that. I’ve been a supporter of Both his albums and looking forward to the next one. I wish more mainstream artist had the Balls to go at the government, social ills and the status quo. Most mainstream artist play to the mindless, dumb it down, and play TO THEIR GOD (that dollar).

    • just because its “socially conscious” doesn’t mean its good.  Lupe is corny without a doubt.

      • Tony G.

        not all of his shyt is socially conscious.and if people actually take the chance to LISTEN to his music, people would realize its pretty good..not to mention that from a purely lyrical standpoint he’s better than a lot of these imitation rappers out here today

        Lupe’s lyricism is only rivaled by Nas and Rakim; you have to be educate to understand him… How the heck is he corny?!!

  • OH AND APPARENTLY SOMEONES LISTENING HIS FANS GOT THE LABEL TO DROP HIS LAST ALBUM  FASSSST

    The problem with what Lupe is doing, is that he’s going at the government & politicians by himself! He needs a lot more support from the People & the churches!

    Lupe needs to get with Warren Valentine, and kick off the New World Order/Revolution!

  • I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY AT THIS POINT….
    THE LABELS CAN’T DO EVERYTHING, I MEAN I’M NOT ABOUT TO PROTEST FOR ANYBODY’S ALBUM,IT AIN’T THAT SERIOUS SMH.
    LUPE HAD HIS CHANCE,NOW HE HAS TO WAIT ON HIS LABEL LIKE REST OF THESE INDUSTRY WORKERS,THAT’S JUST BUSINESS….

    THE INDUSTRY EXECS CONTROL THE RELEASE DATES,THIS HAS ALWAYS BEEN A KNOWN FACT….

    • Tony G.

      umm..Lupe doesnt have a 360 deal…u use that term alot and prolly dont even know wtf a 360 deal is…

  • Brian and Q you 2 ninjas must be in the slow class. Corny and Science Rap, lmao, you 2 should kill yaselves.

  • TruthSerum

    Figures the comments in here would be hating, see a rapper oN TV with a lil common sense that doesnt make you ashamed of the genre and the 2nd grade reading level idiots show up to shit on it

  • It’s time for change!!!!!

    M.U.!!!!

  • I’LL RATHER TAKE MY CHANCES BEING UNSIGNED..

  • These some hatin ass, dumb ass niggas in here. Lupe is that dude, hands down. Why do people prefer to listen to niggs talkin selling crack to their own people, fuckin hoes, which if that hoe was your sister you wouldn’t let any other nigga play her, shoes, clothes and jewlry. That’s why niggas die over Jordan concords. Cuz they’re brainwashed by the media to feel like they need irrelevant shit! Lupe has substance. A message. He cares about you, and me. The entire black race. I swear, niggas WANT to be dumb. “Science Rap”? So what’s regular rap? You know, the shit that dumbs you down and makes you feel inadequate…???!

    IN STORES NOW!
    ITUNES & AMAZON!

    NOW THIS SHOULD BE THE TOP STORY!!!!

  • rep87

    slick way to see how many people want to here or buy yo shit / these labels are being very careful bout there investments between bootleg and bad economy nobody taking chances even with establish artist who sales have fallen off they really looking for the next hot thang

  • I’M NOT AGAINST LUPE,I JUST FEEL LIKE IT’S OTHER ARTIST OUT HERE THAT DESERVE A FAIR SHOT…

  • I DON’T LISTEN TO NONE OF THIS BULLSHIIT…

    • King Cold

      True story MU. They dnt knw about that underground hip hop cuz that’s where its at. If you’re a rapper tired of the label why not go independent and do good numbers? Lupe has the fans for it. He can do it. But who knows. Maybe its all just a ploy to make folks wait and buy his cd. It aint the first time its happened

      • Tony G.

        he prolly cant get out of the his contractual obligations to go indy and make money…i mean he can prolly drop mixtapes but thats about it

  • Rap needs artists like Lupe. I can see why the label wouldn’t want to release his project….they want strong singles & cliché subject matters. Lupe has substance & is comfortable in his own skin……..2pac was too. BIG  was himself. Eminem & Wayne are themselves. Point is hip-hop needs a variety of original artists who will say whatever they want. If the labels understood that they would stop requesting artist to release GARBAGE & they would start selling records again

  • sfs4

    Yo that nig is corny anyways …

    • Tony G.

      and can prolly rap betta than ur favorite rapper..fuckouttaherewiththatdumbshyt

      • sfs4

        Lupe not even on a top 20 best rapper list so get off his nutts lolll !!

      • Guest

        You’re an idiot. Lupe’s lyricism is better than BIG’s or Pac’s and is only rivaled by Nas and Rakim. You actually have to be educated to understand him. Stupid.

  • I FIGHT EVIL

  • I feel bad cuz Lupe has so much potential but he has went through hell. But I must say drop a mixtape nigga fck a label if he really wanted to get his message across. But there are ways the industry works that most of you cannot understand. There will always be ppl who can make club muisc. Thats not MC. Rappers NEED to address world issues rather than glorify satanic behavior.

  • Tony G.

    just becuz a rapper doesnt dumb down his lyrics and conform to nonsense of this generations rappers doesnt make him bad..PE made a hell of a career doing the same thing Lupe is doing now….but u didnt have to dumb ur shyt down for my generation so it was acceptable..I love the fact that he’ll stick to his guns and speak about real stuff than to talk about swag, money and cars on every song just to sell an album
