I am a huge fan of Lupe Fiasco as a rapper, but not so much as a person.  He just seems to take himself really seriously.  Almost like he’s a wanna be Pharrell but less talented and stylish.  Lupe knows he’s good, but he thinks he’s excellent.  Anyway some of his fans went to Petition Online (which sounds like the epicenter of loserdom) to demand that Atlantic Records drop his heavily anticipated Lasers album.  To Lupe’s credit I’m sure the album will be fire.  However, the record biz is really starting to get absolutely f*cked.  Lupe is one of those artists that will get tons of critical acclaim from critics and taste makers alike.  Will his album make Atlantic Records a profit?  Now that is a question that most people don’t care to answer.  But Lyor does.  As of right now, they don’t think Lasers will lead to moolah and guap.  Those Bentley’s record executives drive are expensive.  So his album ain’t coming out right now.  Below a tweet from Lupe taking some subtle shots at Atlantic .  Then the text of the Petition started by Lupe Fiasco fan boys, and Lupe’s reactionary tweet.  RR.

  • Dear Atlantic Records,The fans have been below have been waiting for the release for Lupe Fiasco’s album “Lasers” for over a good year now. Since when it was originally announced finished last summer, there has still yet to be a release date announced. It has even been stated by Lupe Fiasco the artist himself, that the album si in fact completed. Enough is enough, we demand that you stop playing around and give us the album that we have been highly anticipating since the release of The Cool.

    Sincerely,

    The Undersigned

  • a real hip hop fan.

    This is the point where i stop coming to ihiphop for rap updates and opinions. One of the best parts about Lupe Fiasco is that hes real. Not of that fake gangsta gangsta shit, hes well spoken, writes about real stuff and is talented as hell. Its been a long time since he completed LASERS and Atlantic is just being dumb about the release. If it takes a bunch of online fans to get it out then i say good for them.

    Lupe is easily top 5 best hip hop artists in the game right now.
