All tag results for lupe fiasco
And boy does it get heated! Phew!
Last night, Bill O'Reilly had rapper Lupe Fiasco on his show to discuss a comment he made earlier in the month about President Obama. Mr. Fiasco had called Obama a "terrorist" and Bill wanted him to clarify his remarks. When Bill calls Lupe out on this, a mild argument ensues between them and while both sides have a point, we can't help but wonder if Bill has more of one than Lupe.
Check out the video to see what we mean (above). Who do U agree with?
Two performances for the price of one!
Check out the video (above) of Trey Songz and Lupe Fiasco performing Out of My Head and The Show Goes On live at the MTV Movie Awards!
What do U think of this Trey/Lupe medley???
Wow! It's crazy how much this changes the complete tone of the song!
Apparently, long before B.o.B. recorded his now-hit track, Airplanes, with Hayley Williams of Paramore and Eminem, his labelmate, Lupe Fiasco, was offered the song, and even recorded his own verses before ultimately passing on it!
Luckily, his version has leaked, and you can listen to it (above)!
Inneresting! There's obviously a lot more energy on the B.o.B. version…but there's something about the mood of this one, a sadness that keeps us hitting the re-play button over and over again!
It would been very cool to hear a finalized version of this on Lasers!
What do U think?? Which version do U prefer??
Of course she is! She is unstoppable!
According to the Nielsen Soundscan, the singer's new album, 21, fell to the number two spot last week in lieu of the new Lupe Fiasco LP, Lasers, but she has now knocked him down to number three spot, marking her third non-consecutive week as the most in-demand, selling 98,000!
Amazing! This has seriously become the little album that could!
Earlier this week, Lupe Fiasco went on the record and talked negatively about his new album and the music industry, without seeming to care AT ALL about how his record label might react.
In what appears to be another moment of despair, Lupe has opened up further about his lack of enthusiasm for the music industry, despite the fact that his new album was JUST released.
Here's what he had to
lament say about the music industry:
"To be blunt, I don't really give a [crap]. I've grown very distant from the business, very numb to it…I don't really care about the success anymore. I don't really care about the fame. Three, four years later, I look at my bank account statements, and I haven't made any money with my record label. You start to think a little bit differently about your motivations and why you're doing what you're doing."
More from Lupe on the music industry's lack of creativity:
"I’m guilty of it, too. Hip-hop today — talking solely about the commercial space — it’s the same producers, sound, over and over again. The artist with that particularly poppy song is given the first look as opposed to that ethereal, weird artist with the brand-new music."
"The person who wins Best New Artist is this really abstract left bass player, [b]ecause it’s about who’s making music, who’s making something different. Justin Bieber sounds just like everybody else, to be honest. He’s the homie; he’s dope. But he’s no different than Sean Kingston, Usher."
We certainly agree that creativity is important, and we're sure there's room for improvement, but we don't think complaining like this is the most productive way to address the issue.
…Plus, you're certainly not making any new friends in the industry by speaking like this, Lupe.
