Lupe Claims He’s Being Held Hostage By Label!

Lupe Fiasco is saying Atlantic Records was holding him hostage and controlling his new album Lasers that is being released on Tuesday! See what he told thChicago Sun Times and Atlantic Record’s response.
Lupe Said: “I was specifically told ‘Don’t rap too deep on this record.’ That was a specific order from the top. ‘You’re rapping too fast or too slow, or it’s too complex.’There are consequences and combat that comes from that process and the eventual compromise. With me, though, I’m not writing about someone else. I’m writing about me. This is my life. It’s very personal for me. So for somebody to kind of put their fingers in that and play with that, it becomes more damaging. I am a hostage, I gave them what they wanted. If I didn’t, at the end of the day the album wasn’t coming out.”
Atlantic Records simply responded by saying “We fully support Lupe and the release of ‘Lasers.’”
