Lupe Fiasco Contemplated Suicide Over Losing “Nothing On You” to B.o.B

Before B.o.B. topped the charts with his hit “Nothin On You” Lupe Fiasco had a his own version of the song that simply wasn’t up the label’s expectations. Lupe told UK’s The Guardian about how losing that song made him contemplate suicide. See what he said & take a listen to his version.
“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.”
