he shouldn't be mad.. lupe has a near cult following. He doesn't need big budget gimmicks to sell.
Dude don't sell records like that.He still need promo from MTV and BET 2 even do decent numbers.This is not a good move by Lupe.Bet any money He's gonna apoligize.

I honestly think Lupe should go independent. IDK what his contract is with atlantic but an artist like him should be independent.. they don't sell nearly as many records but they benefit much more in the long run, & still make decent cash to live better than the average person.. he has a strong enough fanbase for that.

bet any money he wont...you act like rappers make money of record sales it's all about the tours, and lupe sells out, he doesn't sell out arenas but he does seem to perform in front of audiences packed in like sardines.
& even if an artist like lupe was to do a show every weekend he can still live wonderfully off that. The sales & the major label s**t doesnt matter, his fans are already there. How much you think this n*gga gets for a show? I'd say no less than 5K. people barely make that money in 1 month let alone one weekend

That's what lupe needs to do. Independent is the best route to go. All the money goes to you and you can make all the music you want without worrying about corporate above you trying to change you and sell out. That's what I would do. He has a loyal fanbase and he can do good overseas as well.

He's telling the truth but I fear that MTV is too big for him to go against. He basically started off bashing and then ended his rant with light criticism(I want the old MTV back!)..nah it don't work like that. That's the kind of s**t that gets you blackballed.

IDK....Lupes always been wierd. I remember when he said Jay invited him to his house and kept giving him rare jeans and s**t and wanted to sign him to Rocafella. I think that was a mistake on his part. He's been having issues with Atlantic and know is slowly been known more for his stunts than music. That's not a good look.

straight up facts

Lu has a right to get at that garbage a.ss station. They told him he needs to follow in BOB's steps and be a more manufactured artist so he can be a bigger star.

They've gotten a lil better since those TRL days.They Play Videos 2am-9am.MTV 2 have the Suckerfree Countdown and they also play MTV Jams 6am-9am.They're way more active than BET.

much respect to him telling the truth about MTV but how is this helping his career? this is doing nothing but burning a bridge you have to learn how to work within the beast in order to take it down,how is burning all your bridges with radio,blogs and tv media going to get your message out.

Lupe I WOULD k!ll to be in your position right now what you need to do is simple its not hard......

1.Release friend of the people talking about all your grievances with the industry
2.Rebuild your damage relationship with the bloggersphere
3.stay active a keep putting out music be it lost songs or a new freestyle ever couple of weeks
4.STOP COMPLAINING, in your defense I thought it was warranted given your situation with your album, but all this complaining about "the system" should be said through your music not media press s**t just isn't a good look even if its true.
