  4. These things happen all of the time. Why do you guys think Lupe was writing songs for Matthew Santos and out of that process, Japanese Cartoon was born? Because Matt was told by people at Atlantic (& Lupe's people) that his songs were not "main stream" enough. For those that don't know, Matthew Santos is a prolific song writer with literally hundreds of AMAZING songs he has written himself-- songs that are authentic and moving and with great lyrics. When you reach a certain level of recognition, EVERYBODY wants to capitalize off of you and everybody tells you what they think is going to bring you breakthrough success. The truth is, there is no single formula for success. Authenticity is paramount. When a company tries to manufacture music that they think will sell, most often they fall flat because the product isn't genuine. In a way, it seems like Lupe is getting some karma returned to him because of what happened with Matt (& the whole 1st/15th crew), but that is not for me to say. In the end, I hope justice will prevail and everyone's music reaches it's intended audience. It deserves that much.

  5. Yep, that's exactly what I thought... they holding that record Ransom. I'm tryna figure out if we (the fans) can buy out his Atlantic contract... This is kinda why me and my friends really don't kno what to do towards music... We don't wanna sign these new record deals. They are u signing your soul away. I had s brief talk with Lu this weekend (as a fan) and I could see the hurt in his eyes and hear it in his voice. He is a man 1st ppl.... We do want his music, but you have to understand he has a family to feed and has to make correct business decisions. I feel for him and I think he is the only artist with true and loyal fans. Some of these other artists or should I say saviors of Rap need to step up and come to bat for him. We need more support! Keep it up Lu... You have a real fan here, not just a fan a friend... Peace and much Love 2 u brother! STSO!

  9. Damn I hope this Fiasco Friday brings forth results. I'm gonna take off work to go. Or he needs to leave Atlantic somehow and release his music independent. We the fans will support Lupe whatever label hes under and whatever he does. Every time Lupe is in New York I go see him. Its just a shame that something so pure can be held for something so stupid. Free Lasers man, Real talk.

  10. He's doin the right thing by not sellin out... I'm done wit atlantic, I don't need to buy another cd from them ever again. I don't care who's on the label.

    Stay strong Lu! You got a lot of diehard fans that support you....

    Everyone: stop buyin Atlantic material. Post up if you agree. We'll take it to their doorstep next week and see what they wanna do.

    @Atlantic Records- GO TO SLEEP

  12. what's crazy is, I can listen to F&L and the Cool every day and not get tired of it! that's just how powerful and amazing his music is. I pray and hope things will get better for him. :(

  13. ATLANTIC IS ASKING LUPE TO SELL HIS SOUL FOR A LIL BIT OF MONEY. THEY WANT HIM TO CHANGE HIS WHOLE RHYMING STYLE, THE MESSAGE WITHIN HIS LYRICS, AND THEY WANT A PIECE OF EVERYTHING HE PROFITS OFF OF. That's like my employer asking for 25% of the grocerices I've purchase due to the fact I purchase them with the money I've made from my employer, it's B.S.! How about this: Since Atlantic thinks Lupe is so wack! Why don't they just release The LASERS Album and then release Lupe from their label and let him go elsewhere! The simple fact that the fans want the album released and the record company could careless, shows us how much our opinion is valued! Record deals come and go, but Lupe's fans remain eternal! Give'em hell on Fiasco friday! I'm sure alot of arist have accepted that "pimp" 360 contract but just won't admit it! Mad respect to Lupe for standing up for something he believes in and putting conviction/morals over financial gain!

  14. Reading these comments, i am so proud of the Lupe fans first the petition,then Fiasco Friday protest,and now understanding his dispute with Atlantic records. I really wish i can be there but please do it big for us who can't make it

  15. ok i have 2 say......we the fans fucked it up........... either way Atlantic is going to get profit...

    If Fiasco Fridays is a success or Atlantic's just release lasers....tht album has been blogged so much and so expected tht is going to score good money....

    Or If they don t release Lasers....they are eventually going to push lupe against the wall and make him sign the 360 shit.

    I don t have a clue what lupe's contract says but the ending clause has to be really high for lupe not to leave tht place....I Feel for him, man....and for the fans aswell...from now on Lupe wont be able to put his everything into the songs..... there is no one tht can work perfectly in such conditions.

  16. 'Fuck is wrong with Atlantic?

    This is probably the rage speaking, but burn in hell you greedy bastards. Fucking ridiculous.

  17. I rather him do his records independent because there's no justice in this situation. He earned every bit of respect & endorsement. SO why he got to give them 25% of everything he's part of. If people thinks that's good then they are some fools because I wouldn't want to give them anything especially if I managed to get it all by myself. Atlantic has made a lot of people famous, but in this situation they are just being selfish & foul to Lupe. To Lupe I hope he keeps making records, but not with them. You can do better by yourself. We fans are supporting you just like when you was underground making music. God Bless you bro.

  18. Wow this is ridiculous. Atlantic is on some bull. It frustrates me just to see Lupe talking about what Atlantic is doing.

    Just goes to show how corrupt the music industry is. No wonder why Lupe wants to retire..or I bet it's a least one of the main factors why he doesn't want to be in the game no more.

    Much love and respect for Lupe. He's more than an artist in my eyes. He's a role model. The fans I feel are more than the usual hysterical fans. I feel like if I meet Lupe, it'll be chill and it'll feel like he's one of my own friends.

    For the people going to the Protest aka #FiascoFriday, don't start a Riot! lol Lupe sure as hell would be disappointed. Be Civil yall. I wish I could go, but things don't always go your way.

    Love and Respect to those people who support Lupe.

  19. What if Lupe just let go of everything? Broke his contract? Let them take everything. And started off new. I'm sure there are many labels that would want him. He's like a slave right now. He can't do anything. Shit is mad lame.

  20. I am 100% behind Lu. I hope that he gets out of this rut soon so the world can be exposed to his incomparable music.

    pretty hard not to go insane
    not pretty if you don't comply
    pretty easy if you don't complain

  25. i just have to comment on this, i mean i know we all upset about the situation and that are boy is not getting the exposure, but when we make comments like lil wayne is wack it kinda discredits us the fans a little to those who dont know much about this whole ordeal because lil wayne is hott period. and me as well as others like lil wayne and love lupe. just food for thought that we arent out to attack any other rappers, esp 1 who is in jail, because we wanna be taken seriously in the end and we all want the same thing. #Free Lasers

  28. The truth is finally coming out, and I'm so happy that it finally is.
    We've been left in the dark for far too long.

    Let's just continue to do what we can, and keep this thing going.
    We got the buzz, now let's fight for change.
    FIASCO FRIDAY IN FULL EFFECT.

    Love Love.
