Life isn't fair. These a**holes are making millions by doing music. You have to do a couple songs you don't like? Oh f**king well. He's not popular enough to control his music yet. You're an idiot if you don't expect major record labels to want to control parts of your album. It's a f**king business. An album full of nerd rap and world views doesn't sell. This is coming from a Lupe fan.
Co-sign.

^^ he knew what the f**k he was getting into when he signed with a major label. they wanna get money. plain and simple. and they know what he "wants" to put out isnt s**t thats gonna sell. not that Lasers will either but its still an attempt to be mainstream and make money.

and this n*gga wants his money just as bad thats the only thing i dont understand...how hes gonna b**ch abt the label trying to get paid, hes doing the exact same s**t. that was the whole point of the "im not putting out mixtapes anymore" because people were "stealing his music". ok u abt ur money, so is the f**king label. so hes a walking contradiction

I said this once and I'm a say it again. If Lupe wants to put out the music that he wants to put out he needs to leave Atlantic records and do what Tech N9ne did and go Indy plain and simple. Tech has his own label and can make his own music, videos, and all that s**t and doesn't have to appeal to the people that the major labels want him to. Why? Cause he owns his own label and he's independent. Plus he has a loyal fanbase.

Lupe right now has a descent fanbase and he's worldwide. If he just branches off from Atlantic and just run around with 1st and 15th he'll be fine!! He has money and a loyal fanbase. He can and will be in a win win situation just like Tech.

But keep in mind that Lupe is lazy, compared to Tech. Not a knock on him, but Lupe is more of that Jay Electronica, Dr. Dre, every track has to be an absolute classic and if it's not I'll get emotional mindset. That's not the kind of grind that works on the Indy scene. Tech is the hardest working man in rap, Lupe is too frail (again not a knock) to really go that route, I think...

i agree but i think atlantic will want him to pay them alot to release him

if it was real easy to get out of his contract i think he would of left years ago

he needs to leave atlantic so he can put his own album out instead of compromising

Why would he right before he put out his album try to k!ll his sales by saying he hates his album.....
Well it's a bold marketing strategy. Hope it works for the n*gga.

s**t wack son, if your an artist why can't you have the freedom to put out what you want. Like if you write. If you just perform the track cool, label make me a song. but artist should have that freedom.

Dude needs to sign with G.O.O.D music and call it a day. Atlantic is retarded. This album is dumbed down. I thought he flatly refused to do so. How they take the best tracks off of Lasers Go to Sleep, Super Lupe Rap, Shining Down, I'm Beaming WTH? I guess Im gonna have to make my own version of Lasers for my Ipod. All those tracks plus enemy of the state and BMF

Universal tried forcing Chamillionaire to do certain tracks too and look how that turned out. Cham didn't do it, now he's off the label and making s**t he wants to put out. Lupe should follow in Cham's footsteps.
and he got introduced to the word foreclosure
