Whats Going on with Lupe Fiasco???
Damn come on dude, do you know how hard it is to be a Lupe Fiasco fan? I've been following this man for 3 years now, ever since I heard his verse on Kanye's Touch the Sky. a couple of years later and he has 1 famous hit on his belt "superstar". I HATE SUPERSTAR. It's not that its pop, its just to soft and slow for my tastes.
Now, today, on the day of the Grammy's, I still wonder why Lupe Fiasco has such little acknowledgment... at times I wish he would sell out just a liiiiitttllleee, you know, Drop us a hit or two, make a costly video for once. Damn, even Jay-z makes pop tracks every once in a while, Kanye West has gone COMPLETELY pop, and I'm still buying his albums.
Lu has made so many promises, sooo sooo many promises, its hard to even take him seriously. Concept album? where? Trilly and Truly brand clothing? Comic Book? DONT EVEN GET ME STARTED ON THAT ALL-HIPOP CONCERT YOU DIDNT SHOW UP TO. ASS.
but whatever, its not Lu's fault he doesnt get the best beats or production money for his videos. He's a true artist, like Mos Def before him, never wanting to comply with Industry assholes. PULL A RADIOHEAD ON THE NEXT ALBUM!
Lupe, if your reading this: sell out a bit. do it for the fans. sure you think your compromising your artistic integrity, but some people just want to jam to a good ass radio track, not ponder over the ethical ramifications of reformation of Urban culture blah blah blah.
