Lupe’s last album “L.A.S.E.R.S.” was highly anticipated but his fans from way back when weren’t too pleased with the product. The lyrics were upfront, deep and controversial like they have always been but the beats they were performed over weren’t like they have always been; they were more Euro instead of authentic like we, his fans were used to. He had more mainstream music on that CD than any other album in the past. Many were questioning why Lupe had strayed away from the style that made him the artist that we all loved; well the answer was simple, Atlantic Records.
Lupe is currently signed to Atlantic Records, one of the big boys in the music industry. Over the years Lupe and the label haven’t seen eye to eye, it has come for the two to part their ways. He has one more album left to be distributed under the label and he’s done. Actually Lupe is excited to be going independent because he will be able to make, produce and distribute the type of music he wants with any restraints or regulations.
“We’re coming toward the end of our relationship so it’s like a going away party. After this album, I got one [album] left. So, it’s all good for now. They give me my room. I’m definitely not going back into the majors. I’m definitely going indie when we’re done.”
“It was never meant to be a big radio kind of record, kind of like Lasers was with big radio records. This is more like a core Hip Hop joint so we have room to throw six records out.”
Be looking out for Lupe’s next album “Food and Liquor 2: Great American Rap pt.1″ that drops September 25th. I’m excited because from the singles I’ve heard that will be on the album, Lupe is back to his old self and you can tell.
