Lupe joked about possibly moving to Africa to make rock music.  When asked where he would be in 5 years:

  • “Hopefully I’ll be out of my traditional record deal, the record deal I’m in right now. Probably living in Africa somewhere, making rock music,”

He continues to speak on his rift with Atlantic:

  • “Yeah, yeah. I would rather be independent, I would take that.  Independent comes with its own set of consequences, so that takes preparation. The same way you prepare to come into a record deal, you need to prepare to come into an indie situation because there is a lot of things you’re going to lose taking that route.”

See Lupe loves to be a complainer, but at the end of the day he is smart enough to realize that going independent comes with a much smaller check, and Lupe likes nifty Goyard bags.
