Lupe Fiasco Says He Flirted With suicide While Making 'Lasers'
 

 

In a new, wide-ranging interview, rapper Lupe Fiasco dug deeper than usual when revealing his inspirations and journey to complete his much-anticipated record 'Lasers.' Speaking to Details, Fiasco said that he fell into a deep depression after initially submitting his album to Atlantic Records two and a half years ago and getting rejected for not knowing "how to do what Kanye does."

He dealt with that sadness on a track that is emerging as a standout on the final version of the new album. Entitled 'Beautiful Lasers,' Lupe raps, "If you feel like you don't want to be alive/ You feel just like I am." He remarked that he did in fact contemplate k!lling himself at that point "to keep from k!lling somebody else." Lupe also said that making his third studio album wasn't easy. "The creation of 'Lasers' was a very painful, dark, f---ed-up process," he admitted.

Notably, the admission of depression and suicidal feelings has long been prevalent on hip-hop tracks but rarely discussed in public until recent cases like Fiasco's. Last year, Kanye West admitted to feeling suicidal after the media scrutiny surrounding his public meltdown at the 2009 MTV VMAs. Before that, The-Dream said that he seriously considered ending it all during his separation and then public divorce with wife Christina Milian.

'Lasers' is set to drop March 8.

depression is a very real problem in society and i don't think it should be made fun of, just because lupe is a famous rapper doesn't mean he doesn't have problems to deal with
