It is really bitter-sweet. I love Lupe's music, but I feel like he was driven to make a more pop-star type album by his label. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy his album is selling, and "words i never said" will BLOW THE FUCC UP! I've had that song on repeat for like a week.

to all the people acting like lupe never did decent number

The Cool sold well and went gold

and if i remember correct F&L would have did GREAT numbers and had a huge buzz but it leaked like 3 months before the release date which had an effect on it sale but it still almost went gold


i'm putting this s**t behind me and hope lupe keeps his word and makes F&L 2 an original creative street album

fnf up!!!!

That theory makes no sense.. The Label would just be wasting money.. You think Atlantic is going to spend money on buying albums just so Lupe Fiasco will make a certain type of music while they're not making any extra profit in the process of them doing this because they bought the albums their selves..? LOL WTF... No.. they wanted him to make music that sells.. it's simple..
i always felt that way when people would say that about Jay and outkast but i have a feeling deep down that atlantic bought some of those records. its not a principal of money. its a principal of appearance. to show to his fans that hated the album, that he could sell records without them and to show lupe that the label was right and he was wrong. they want him to be a cash cow, year in year out. f**k integrity, internet followings, good music and awards. they just want the sales. now lupe is everywhere. i hear his songs on espn and other stations constantly. the only song of his i ever heard on espn was kick push and go baby for the x games. that was it.


perhaps i sound just as crazy as all those guys talking about the illuminati and the u.s. creating earthquakes. maybe he sold those albums legitimately. congrats lupe

nah you don't sound crazy labels buy albums but they do it at a much higher volume if lupe sold 500k the first week I would say that atlantic helped but this isn't the case infact 200,000 is good but it isn't high enough for the label to be like "I told ya so" and the reason lupe is everywhere is because he has fans everywhere yall gotta remember the producer of new moon called him and asked him to make a song for the twilight soundtrack because he was such a big fan, Mtv played I'm beaming because he was tight with some of the staff lupe has always been getting espn love superstar was the nba playoffs highlight theme for 2007.

and yes labels do care about making money but thats the point if they are buying up all the albums they are not making money and a label will not hesitate to shelf you to save face saigon was in the exact same situation as lupe and look how his situation turned out, look how little bothers situation turned out with the get back.

that makes no sense at all, the point of the whole feud was they wanted lupe to make music they felt was going to maximize their profits it wouldn't make sense for them to buy all his albums just so they could prove a point infact if they bought all the album they'd be proving him right.

all them artist a few I love, but why is big boi in that category... isn't he a "southern" rapper but your talkin about "real hiphop" ..which obviously means good hip hop to those "real hip hop" people That saigon isht is banana's yes I dl'ed e few tracks, but Im a DJ and I needed the clean version..and I do not really listen to much more than what I make in the lab so Im not really buyin music at all..Im not even diggin in the crates right now. budden ortiz that whole slaughter house thing is not my thing..I think you would consider me the "real hip hop " guy if ya didn't know any better.. little brother is not the same .. and I bought rae's last album...from the sound of the new one ...Ill purchase as well. so this whole argument is just a vent cause some where somebody prolly dissed ya favorite pop artist
