Looks like Lupe Fiasco's got A LOT on his mind that he wants to share with the world before his new album Lasers is released.
Here's Lupe on his extreme reaction to B.o.B. getting all the recognition for Nothing On You, a song he originally recorded:
"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.”
And here's Lupe's less-than-positive thoughts on his new album:
“I hate this album. I don’t hate the music, but I hate the process. When I look at it, I don’t see song titles and artwork, I see the fight – I see the emotions, the blood, sweat and tears. There are a couple of songs on there that I love; but Lasers is a little bit of what you love, a little bit of what you like, and a lot of what you had to do."
We appreciate you opening up to us about all of this, but you realize this isn't going to help your label try and make your new single and album a hit, right?
It's a little bit distressing that you don't seem to care about this. Thanks for the honesty, but if you're so down about this album that you're willing to speak out against it, maybe there are bigger issues still at play.
MIGHT want to seek professional help, Lupe. The drama with B.o.B. is very unfortunate, but it's not worth contemplating suicide over.
