With Lupe Fiasco recently ending his public dispute with his label, Atlantic Records, labelmate Diggy Simmons recently sat down to talk about how the beef between Lupe and Atlantic made him feel uneasy with his own deal. Talking about the now resolved issues, Diggy said he never got too concerned or felt there would be any beefs between himself and Altantic.
"Nah, not at all because our situations are different; and obviously we know what happened, that's stuff I can't release, but I knew that our situations were completely different, especially with his album and with mine," Diggy told SOHH when asked if he worried about falling out with Atlantic. "So I had no concerns at all because they already told me how excited they were and what they were gonna do and not saying they weren't excited for Lu at all, Lu's been down for a long time. He's done two albums at Atlantic so I'm definitely so happy for my big brother that Lasers is gonna come out because I'm a fan myself. If I wasn't [an artist], I might have been at Fiasco Friday with everybody else. I'm a big fan and I'm gonna buy Lasers when it comes out and support my big brother." (SOHH)
