1Lupe Fiasco Talks Suicidal Thoughts, B.O.B, & Lasers



Lupe has a tremendous amount of stress on his mind with a new album he hates and B.o.b getting all the recognition for hit single  nothing on you featuring Bruno mars.  I reported a few months ago that nothin on you was originally recorded by Lupe. 


On rapper B.o.b getting credit for  ‘nothing on you ‘:
“That was the tipping point. It was less about the bruised ego but more the audacity of it. It was mentally destructive. I say it with a certain laissez-faire now because I’m past it, but back then, hearin’ that s**t, it f**ked me up. I was super-depressed, lightly suicidal, at moments medium suicidal – and if not suicidal, willing to just walk away from it all completely.”

 On his new album Lasers:
“I hate this album. I don’t hate the music, but I hate the process. When I look at it, I don’t see song titles and artwork, I see the fight – I see the emotions, the blood, sweat and tears. There are a couple of songs on there that I love; but Lasers is a little bit of what you love, a little bit of what you like, and a lot of what you had to do.”

Suicidal thoughts for real?  Time to seek some professional help.

Lupe opens up about his feeling on the music industry

“To be blunt, I don’t really give a [crap]. I’ve grown very distant from the business, very numb to it…I don’t really care about the success anymore. I don’t really care about the fame. Three, four years later, I look at my bank account statements, and I haven’t made any money with my record label. You start to think a little bit differently about your motivations and why you’re doing what you’re doing”I’m guilty of it, too. Hip-hop today — talking solely about the commercial space — it’s the same producers, sound, over and over again. The artist with that particularly poppy song is given the first look as opposed to that ethereal, weird artist with the brand-new music.”

“The person who wins Best New Artist is this really abstract left bass player, [b]ecause it’s about who’s making music, who’s making something different. Justin Bieber sounds just like everybody else, to be honest. He’s the homie; he’s dope. But he’s no different than Sean Kingston, Usher.”


0Lupe Fiasco Defends Kanye; Blasts George Bush via Twitter

“Maaaaaaaaaan… f*ck bush! That n*gga was a tyrant and a menace! American Imperialist and terrorist! Supported financial chicanery and illegal wars…f*ck him! Till @kanyewest is responsible for the deaths of Hundreds Of Thousands of people he good in my book. The Tea Party Don’t Like Black People!!”

Chicago’s finest is in the house….

Fellow Chicago native rapper Lupe Fiasco has come to  Kanye West’s defense against George Bush via his  twitter.

The recent controversy surrounding George Bush, Matt Lauer and Kanye West has stirred up long simmering bad feelings about the former President.

Kanye tried to clarify his statements on The Today show this week, but that interview with Matt Lauer didn’t go over well. West was so frustrated with how he felt he was treated by Lauer, he’s pulled out of a post Thanksgiving Day performance on the Today Show.

Ol’ George  will have to cross another rapper off his Christmas list.

0Lupe Fiasco Goes Ape Sh*t on MTV [Read Here]

Rapper Lupe Fiasco went ape sh*t on  mega entertainment company mtv via his Apparently he  hates the new MTV and wants the old one back describing the company as being “salacious” and  “materialistic“. Peep the tweets below!

Oh snap…MTV (illuminati’s favorite network) back on the attack…why can’t y’all just chill out? Salacious banality @ the speed of light?

“I think I’ve been very good natured with you. I personally know several employees of your company. You guys know me as well. I’m confused

Where is the true music journalism??? where is Suchin?!! What happened? Where are the honest critiques of cultural expression?

For it’s not about being RIGHT it’s about being HOT Fame over self-awareness and virtue Hedonism over self respect Celebrity over cerebral.

A destroying force in our culture and society just like rest of the useless vapid spectacles that pour out of our tv’s and radios

What are we supposed to be learning from you? What is your point? Do you have a point beyond corporate sponsored distraction?

Your a materialistic shell of your former self that can only identify with celebrity pageantry and instant gratification

Corporate garbage pushing plastic lifestyles and wasteful, destructive behavior into the brains of the youth of the world

So when your relevance thins in2 a whisper & the stock price collapses and you have 2 come 2 grips with the mess you made. I’ll be here 4 ya

We’ll be here. With hands full of baby powder 2 smack some sense back into your body & a warm shoulder to cry on. We want the REAL MTV back!”

Do you agree with Lupe Fiasco comments about MTV?

0Lupe Fiasco “Nothing On You” Feat. Bruno Mars (Original Version)

Producer Jim Jonsin orginally sent this track “Nothin on You” to Lupe Fiasco but after Lupe rap over the record Jonsin  felt it wasn’t right for Lupe and insisted on sending to Atl’s own Bobby Ray aka B.O.B.

Jim Jonsin says via mtv

“I was actually working on a session in Chung King [Studios], and [Atlantic Records chairman] Craig Kallman called me during that session with that particular track, to work on it for Lupe Fiasco,” Jonsin told MTV News. “I told Craig, ‘I like the song a lot. It’s a smash and could be somebody’s single. But it’s not Lupe’s record. I need this record for B.o.B. Please give this record to B.o.B.’ I guess they went through whoever they went through, convinced whoever they needed to, and it got to B.o.B.”

Needless to say B.O.B and Bruno made the track Hawt!
