Rapper Lupe Fiasco is not happy with his record label Atlantic Records and he has decided to express his frustrations in a new interview with Torae on ‘The Tor Guide’ on SiriusXM Radio’s Hip Hop Nation.
Lupe was asked about his relationship with his label and the way he has been treated there during the interview.
“Bad, to keep it a thousand,” he said. “I can’t wait to get off. Even with that said, I’m coming with the biggest records of my career over the next two albums just to set myself up for that post-Atlantic Records career. I’ve had a very interesting run for various reasons. I don’t even think about it anymore. I just go ahead. I rock with my homies at the label who are my homies…but that executive level don’t fuck with your boy too heavy. And it’s good, it is what it is.” (HipHopDX)
Lupe also claimed the label became angry with him after not signing a 360 deal after his sophomore album.
“I don’t have a 360 deal,” he said. “Since they can’t eat off my merchandise or my publishing or my touring they treat me like a third-class citizen up there. I paid the price for that.” (HipHopDX)
