lupe is just lazy. if he built enough buzz for himself, the label will not hesitate to release his album on his terms because he'd have more leverage.

the label on the other hand can say get buck nekkid or else because he has no leverage to negotiate

if he wants the label to front the resources to build his buzz, then shhh this talk ain't goin nowhere. why do you think n!ggas that stay on the grind push mixtapes and go on tours on mixtape songs?
I agree with that Lupe is Lazy! This is a new day & age you gotta stay relevant you cant just drop an album every 2 years and think you did something! Thats why I respect Nicki Minaj's grind! She built her buzz! She drops mixtapes consistently, she guest features on a who's who of the music industry from usher to Christina Augliaria. She is constantly doing layouts & magazine front covers! She is on ustream & twitter. She performs at award shows. She will give anybody an interview plus she always strives to push herself to the next level. Nicki knows this is a business first and foremost and if a record company hand delivered her a hit tonight her verse would be done by the morning.

How is that right tho....

Lupe better stand his ground (real talk)

Atlantic tryin too take da money he made outside of muzik



Anyone thinkin Lupe should cave in or feel da label is in the right has lost there minds

I guess 50 should give up 25% of his Vitamin Water money, cause Interscope wanna piece of the pie
Because at this moment Lupe is being shelved and is going to be continued to be shelved - see all of Diddy's artists.

With a 360 deal the labels are going to push his songs out which will lead to exposure, lead to album says, lead to sneaker deals, lead to commercials, lead to tours etc etc lead to Lupe fulfilling his contract.

Yeah it isn't right but I can see why Atlantic are doing that. They need to make money too. It seems its the only road Lupe can take. Either that or stay doing college tours.

Lupe will never in a million years be as popular as 50 cent is/was

He will never be as marketable as 50 cent

If lupe keep making these bad decisions he is going to end up like joe budden, a cautionary tale.

TERRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!! Comparison, You talkin about magazine covers and layouts, a.ss & t*tties will get you a long way, but,no male artist could get that many covers, and you said she drops mixtapes consistantly, what mixtape has "she" dropped recently? Yes she's on everybody's song s3x sells.

There are a few people on here that I disagree with almost 100% of the time you are one of those people.Your view on s**t is rediculous imo.

25% of any artist's shows, album sales, t-shirts, etc. is tooooooooo much even tho it's kinda a good deal cuz most contracts are made to take 80%+ on major labels. But everything you do is 25%, even if you payed out of your own pocket for a video, production, etc. It doesn't add up. Plus, when the album drops, before you see ANY of that money you have to pay back the album budget. f**k outta here. It makes no sense for anybody to sign that. I'm with LUPE all day. Album been done for 2 years-just drop it. Atlantic is losing money just sitting on it... Labels are sharks. Better off signing a single deal nowadays and dropping ya own mixtapes.

Dude, Record Labels lie all the time.. You can't set yourself up for a 360 deal hoping and wishing that the suits and tie's will make good on their word.. Especially when they make a living off of f**king other artist over.. There is absolutely no garuntee that a record label who just told you that they think you're wack, will give you 100% support that you need.. Now they might do alot more than what they are doing now, but they might not go all in for you and now your stuck with a 360 deal getting r*ped in any other endeavors that you trying to do OUTSIDE of music.. And you would sign this? Where's your head at man??
Lupe is not a fool, and he knows what he's doing.

he doing press conferences now?

This presser didn't help lupe's cause. This makes lupe look really bad because he admits the record company called him wack. All record companies try to take in as much profit as possible so it didn't hurt Atlantic reputation not 1 bit. They are in the business to make hit songs! Superstar was lupe's biggest song to date & that was Atlantic's idea. They know what they are doing. They probably got a whole slew of artists that would love to take lupe's place.
Them saying he's wack don't mean nothing considering they have no problem putting out a Plies album every freaking year

And lets be real, if he is wack, release him from his contract. What is the point of keeping him if he's that bad now, supposedly?

i honestly dont think Atlantic said that, I think Lupe is implying thats how he feel's they feel about him. but you are right, if he is wack then why keep him?

Lupe is way better then alot of folks

I don't know what to say. I hope Lupe releases his album, but I hope this isn't a tactic setup by Lupe and the company. Lupe versus the big bad record label, seems like a ploy.

They only want 25%? Why are you b**ching, you are still getting 3 quarters. He wants 100%? Then stop f**king with the label and release your own album.
n*gga 25% is pretty f**king big, you make it sound like it's something simple, especially when it's YOUR money that YOU worked for.


and Jay-Z spoke out about how the rap game is f**ked up from 360 deals in his interview with Warren Buffet and Forbes, but we don't look at interviews of wealthy men in American, we just skim through them right?

you are not going to sit there and watch that long a.ss interview, and I'm not going to give you the time where he said it.

point blank, Jay-Z doesn't take kindly to 360 deals, that's why I'm not hating on what lupe is doing.
