Lupe Fiasco quit yer bitchin’

No rapper has been genuinely surprised about his album being leaked to the Internets since the days of Jay-Z’s Vol. 3 album, and that was back in the 1990s. Your father was barely out of high school. In fact, not that I follow these sorts of things, but I can hardly remember the last time an album wasn’t widely available on the Internets before it officially hit the streets. Best case scenario, the album might make it all the way until the week before it comes out before everyone has it, like the most recent TI album.

In case you haven’t heard, Lupe Fiasco’s highly anticipated (by Hashim Warren) debut album Food and Liquor was recently leaked to the Internets. In statements that have popped up all over the hip-hop Internets, he either doubts that the album will be released now, or is looking to go back in the studio to record some features with Jill Scott and the Academy Award winning Ben Affleck Three 6 Mafia. Seriously. Not to ruin anyone’s marketing plan, but I can’t help but think that this is all an elaborate publicity stunt.

First of all, you can hardly opt to not release an album that’s already floating around on the Internets. Dave Matthews tried that shit back when I was in college, and he only ended up having to give that album an official release. And that was back before today’s youth was as sophisticated as it is today, what with MySpace and what have you. Niggas was tradin’ shit on CD-r, son! If Lupe Fiasco, or Atlantic Records or whoever opted not to release Food and Liquor, they’d be stopping basically no one from hearing the album, but they’d be forgoing $8 per from the type of stans who would buy that shit anyway.

To support the artist.

That said, I’m sure there’s a business case on the part of Atlantic Records, and whoever else has a stake in this[1], not to sink much more money into it if they think there’s now a significant chance the album, in its official FBI-approved form, doesn’t stand to make much of a profit. As Elliott “Money Pants” Wilson proved in his most recent industry shattering column on this site, rappers aren’t moving that many units these days anyway. And certainly, there’s no shortage of stories of rappers whose albums never came out for whatever reason.

Since it was announced, by Lupe Fiasco himself, that Food and Liquor is readily available from both Limewire and Bittorrent (who are they?), stories about Lupe Fiasco and this album have popped up on seemingly every hip-hop site there ever was on the Internets – except for this one, of course. Also, interestingly enough, this leak happened to coincide with the video for “Kick, Push” being featured on “TRL,” which I’m sure MTV is just doing out of the kindness of their heart. Could it be that this is all an elaborate attempt to a) generate way more publicity for the album than he would have had otherwise, and b) guilt trip people into actually buying it?

Slick move, Mr. Fiasco, but I can tell you right now that I’m not about to spend any money on an album with Jill Scott on it.

[1] If Lupe Fiasco is signed to Atlantic Records, how come he claims his album is being executive produced by the alleged president of Def Jam, Jay-Z? This serves to lend further credence to my theory that there’s only really one major record label, which is run by Jimmy “Double Fantasy” Iovine.

  • jrs-one

    I think Lupe Fiasco came out with his own Reebok’s or some shit. I saw him on a billboard. Who would buy the shoe of Kanye’s Jesus piece handler?

    • matthew

      Kanye’s Jesus piece handler…what are u talking about? Lupe is the savior Hip-hop if it wasn’t for him Common and Kanye I wouldn’t even like rap no more…Lupe s got his own flow and hes killin ur favorite rapper…keep that in mind b4 u open ur mouth and let the Bull shit out…BITCH ASS.

  • RandomName

    For real though Bol, the leak wasn’t a stunt, one of my guys is down with FNF and Lupe was mad heated. Thats’ why Atlantic has been monitoring sites like Sohh and AHH, has been snatching down/killing all the links. They even got it pulled from boxed
    in. I don’t know how they’ll ever do anything about the torrents though. Also I really don’t think this leak got him any more buzz of any kind outside of the net so far. But who knows ?

  • Carl

    It’s a pretty underwelming debut.
    Doesn’t come close to living up to the hype in my perspective.

  • http://www.funkdigital.com/blog funkdigital

    Who wouldn’t be heated? However, whe you got major news outlets carrying a story about a leaked album that’s a definite upgrade for the album. He can name drop and tell his story while talking about the leak. Good promo.

    As far as his beef goes, yeah this might have been a story in 2002. How the hell it’s getting coverage right now is beyond me. Music corps runnin’ things, even the press.

  • http://www.myspace.com/writeonpointmagazine janice

    Bloody right it’s a publicity stunt! Atlantic with Lupe’s knowledge leaked the album themselves to generate some much needed buzz, and it’s worked. The internet’s going CRAZY!, and you have Illseed over at allhiphop racked with guilt, confessing that he downloaded the entire album. Everything’s going to plan.. this is just what Lupe/Atlantic were hoping for.

  • suckitmarshall

    Another controversial stance (yawn). Bol you get me so riled up that I might just…fall asleep….but before I pass out, riddle me this: Why would you leak a piece of shit album to generate pub? If you wanted to create interest, wouldn’t you leak something someone would want to listen to? Besides which, don’t you think, given that Lupe is an unproven artist, likely to go platinum only in the Ukraine (maybe Austria and Saipan too, if he’s lucky), $150,000 (roughly the cost of recording, mixing and beat costs on the 14 or so songs that leaked) is a lot to spend on a pub scam that gets him covered on a bunch of websites for maybe 3 days, about 3-5 months prior to his album release?

  • Walloz

    Who really care if it is a publicity stunt or not? The fact you have an article about it is creating the stunt in itself. Kid’s pissed his album leaked. What’s the big deal?

    The stunt seems to be that Lupe got people like you to write about it…

    “but I can tell you right now that I’m not about to spend any money on an album with Jill Scott on it.”

    Not surprising coming from someone from XXL.

    Download the music, if you like the album enough, buy it. If not, delete it. Simple. No need to write a novel.

    why your mother let you live is beyond me u fuckin douche

  • http://www.crooked-soul.com Zilla

    I’m the only person posting so far that actually IS interesting in hearing Lupe’s album–what with the complete lack of actual rap available in mainstream society, a ’90s throwback like “Kick Push” snags my interest immediately. Sorry.
    Anyway, this is definitely a publicity stunt. Eminem did this crap with his god awful “Eminem Show” album a few years back, claiming the internet was covered with tracks from his half-assed album. Interscope was “bullied” into putting out the record on the FRIDAY before the actual release date, causing absolute pandemonium for retailers and fans thinking they were getting an “exclusive” new Eminem album 4 DAYS BEFORE ITS RELEASE DATE!!! Needeless to say, it sold like cooked crack.
    But Lupe is only known in the mainstream world for his ho-hum verse on “Touch the Sky,” not for rapping about his daughter/mother/wife over fake Dre beats, so will this same formula work?

  • http://rockthedub.blogspot.com khal

    the reason Jay is exec producing it is b/c Jay has been down with Lupe for years, apparently… I think it was reported in XXL earlier this year? Jay wanted to sign Lupe to the Roc in like 01 or 02? I guess they are just good peoples… I wouldn’t highlight my album being exec produced by Jay, though…

    I like the beat in Kick, Push but the lyrics… I’m still torn. I don’t know. Didn’t even realize he had a video for the song. Is he skateboarding in it?

  • youngn

    oh sorry forgot to mention something…..before u write an article on something u obviously have no idea about do ur research……the album that leaked was merely an advance and the REAL Food & Liquor will still be released JUNE 27th!!!!……..co- executive produced by jay-z.

    Some of you are really simple. Why the hate on Lupe? Ok, long live Dem Franchise, D4L and Jeezy.

  • projectnrm

    Bol only talks about rappers he hates because it gets people to read. No one would touch this column if he spent every post talking about his favorite new CD.

    (Unfortunately) We only read this thing so that we can hear what “controversial” thoughts are on his mind, dissing artists who are just trying to sell some albums.

    Its a brilliant system. He clowns your favorite MC, and you can’t clown his, because he never mentions anyone that he likes. To the best of my knowledge, the only musical acts that Bol likes are crappy alternative bands from the early-mid 90s.

    I’ll be very suprised if Bol ever actually name-drops some of his favorite rappers (and no Bol, Third Eye Blind does NOT count because Stephan rhymes on “Semi-charmed life”.)

  • jimmy

    ^bol likes biggie, but i don’t know how far talking shit about b.i.g. will get you in terms of refuting his argument here.

    Publicity stunt??..Lames love living on their computers and beleiving most of the dumb shit they read on the internet.Byron Crawford is the crown prince of lames.Yes I said it!!…Not saying that lables havent had elaborate plans to leak records but it usually doesn’t satisfy the artist. Thats like Byron (or whatever the fuck his name is) getting his chance to interview his favorite artist and working hard and dweligent on the project and then some paparazzi hungry thirsty dipshit gets a hold of it and posts it, with al the typos, wrong fonts and misprints in red all over it!!..Why would he do that??..exactly…The songs that were leaked were not even mixed down.!!!!…And any entry-level artist would curtail the masses from gaining access to a premature project!!…So in short…FNF up..SHUT THE F UP!!!

  • JadedDudeWithAPlateOfFood

    “dweligent”?

    What does THAT mean?

  • UnFaded Disciple

    Are you dumb? Even If lupe made this out as a plan (and I hope it aint like that) why trick people? He got attention cuz of his skills…not cuz he mad people feel sorry for him?

    I would understand if lupe had no skills an dhe did this but he has wordplay, speaks the truth on reality and lif eitself but yet xxl magazine i think its a black magazine that is own by black folks or the author us black…i think…is disrespecting lupe why? cuz he’s getting attention? or is it becuz you want ya newspaper to sell? either way more people will stil buy lupe’s album than they would by xxl magazine anywayz….

    and by the way…arent yall idiots liek in bankruptcy or somethin?

  • Heinz

    do your research dumbass…he doesnt “claim” that jigga is executive producing it,…he just is..if u knew when hov jumped in to help the project then wouldnt have said that..research homie…he wasnt on Atlantic when that happend..he was on Arista…lame.

  • http://myspace.com/jonandbt JediJon

    Fiasco’s wordplay is crazy. His intricate rhyme scheme shits on anything any other current rapper is doing in the mainstream. The beats grow on you with the songs. The development throughout is great. Haters just don’t need to pick up a copy. Its whatever… negativity’s so 2001

  • ric

    nice ignorant report obviously by a man who thinks he is intelligant, sadly not.

    you seem to go out your way to dislike music,quite sad to see that is your only aim.

    and to the kanye with the kanye jesus peice…

    doesnt really connect…kanye was not even on his album…nor is lupe on his label…lupe is also much more prevelant in the fashion industry..and will be releasing his own style of shoe soon….not just the reebok classic release that h had to do with the likes of lil wayne

  • Ant

    This is the reason why the state of Hip Hop is the way it is. If a dude wants to rap about skateboarding and he’s tight cause his album was leaked then so what. You can’t deny the fact he’s nice. Yo do something better with your time and stop hating on dude. He’s nice, keep ya damn $8 dollars so you can cop your metro card. I’ll throw another $8 in it to cop one for the whip, B*tch!

  • http://www.myspace.com/modiman10 Modi

    Byron Crawford, you are the biggest gump on the Earth. Lupe made the statement on Atlantic’s sake. He knew that albums can be leaked and whatnot, and obviously he is a G because he has several mixtapes, all packed with lyrical heat, so it wouldn’t be nothin to the young man to come up with some more bangers to add to the album. He also had planned to record those tracks with Three 6 Mafia and Jill Scott and Pharrell, etc. BEFORE the album was leaked, he just hadn’t made those moves yet. Why do you have a blog that is straight hate? Oh yea, and I co-sign what DJ Drama said on his blog. You suck balls. Come see me on MySpace if you have any problems.

  • Unbiased

    I don’t know why so many people are hating on Lupe. People should be happy that a rap artist is offering something different than the same song with a different beat, like much of the industry right now.

    shut up all yall.
    No one said he wasn’t nice. He is complaining about the “supposed” stunt that is being pushed.

    I think the columinist is just being cynical though. And if you really did your studying, you would know that Jill Scott got skills on the mic. That is like saying when Reasonable Doubt came out, “I’m not buying it because Mary J. Blige is on it”.

    Who cares?

    That’s sheer foolishness, man. Anyways, the Executive Producer spot is only being filled by Jay-Z as assistance, friendship, a bit of marketing and because Lupe’s man who was going to be in that spot was in jail. So, basically, Mr. Fiasco’s buisness situation at Atlantic might be tighten it’s grip around the record because of expectations.

    Don’t know why everyone is pointing at Lupe like he was whinning or anything. He calmly stated that he displeased with other aspects of the leaking, not the leaking itself. He thought the leaking thing would happened a lot later, aswell as possible bootlegs happening much closer to the release date. As said before, it’s all Atlantic expectations on the project’s pan-out.

    nowadays nobody id gonna risk wasting they money on a wack ass album…ppl wanna here it first then if its good they will cop…them freestyles and mixtapes arent enough anymore,why u think artists say that rap is the new drug game,hey LUPE…..YOU CANNOT ESCAPE THE RAPE!!! lol (lox album,we are the streets)

  • JAYINSURGENT

    lupe fagottassco is wack as fuck,just wack rap that will appeal to nerdy white kids cause he talks about skateboarding,not to mention back when I went to high school didnt all the black kids beat up skaters cause skateboarding was a white thing?. but there was a few black kids who were into skateboarding cause they wanted to get with this one white chick they liked. so they thought that by being a skater they would appeal to her,dumb niggers.his wordplay is wack and boring and he raps slow and has the same mumbling voice that all rappers now a days have thanks to 50 cents and what the fuck is up with the name “lupe” is he latino,trying to appeal to latinos? seems to fake to me. underground hip hop is a dumb genre that was started in the late 90′s by a bunch of nerdy white kids to feel special and think they have ecclectic music tastes,this thought process reeks of queerness………….wack wack wack nigger shit!!!

    I cannot believe this ignorant a– article! Lupe Fiasco is one TRUE Hip-Hop rapper. His album leaking is NOT a publicity stunt at all. I would be upset too if my stuff was leaked before the actual release date. Also, I can’t believe people are actually dissing him b/c he likes to skateboard. Well excuse him for being himself! Just because he doesn’t rap about guns, bling bling, cars and hoes and has his own style doesn’t make him wack. Open your minds, people! Open your minds! It’s time for real Hip-Hop to come back anyway.

BACK TO THE LYRICS MAN!!!!!

  • ~Feel Tha Breeze~

    It’s sick that XXL, one of my favorite hip hop mags (and that’s speakin 4 a lot, seein as I’m a female, and all they do is tits ‘N ass on their mag) has a fuckin racist and dim bulb workin’ on their website (yes, the LOVELY Byron Crawford…). , Jill Scott is UNDOUBTEDLY one of the best singers (if not the best), and gets extra kudos cuz I grew up a few blocks from her.
    , Lupe Fiasco is FOR SURE the best newcomer; especially when you have him in a catergory with Rick Ross, Young Joc, and DJ Unc, all of which REALLY blow ass.
    , Lupe is the best rapper for our TIME (yes, I said it.) which is in crisis because we have NO TYPE of music scene. Think of any current rapper…..Oh, U can’t. THEY SUCK. T.I. & Game are prolly the only ones I can give respect to thass new(er).
    Who matches Lu’s flows?
    Who else besides fuckin MF DOOM (who gets bucu props) uses a real multisyllabic flow and isn’t following the same word up with an adlib?
    , Lupe is on of the REALEST mh’fuckas in rap history…Do you know any rapper who owns up to skateboarding, geekin’ all day, and reading his Sin City book along with his Koran? Hell no. He could be another thin persona, but he is a real person; he doesn’t have to lie about selling drugs, he don’t gotta lie about toting heat, and rollin purple piff @ night. He is himself.

    And he gets megaprops, no matter what any nigga says about that dude. I’m young as hell, growin up in this fake ass generation, but I still understand that I have to be true to myself.

    First off, yes i’m an southerner and i LOVE LOVE LOVE Lupe Fiasco’s whole movement(includes: music, swagger, ideas, & various projects) needless to say this Boil or Byron or whatever your name is…yes your entitled to your own opinion so i’ll give you that but no i don’t agree with you in the sense that Lupe’s album is not good or that he “bitched” about it being prematurely leaked. And not to get of topic but Southern music is not all snap & bounce music! There’s a place for every artist that makes their particular music! Music should not only mean something but there’s room for music who’s meaning is simply to mean nothing at all! Just what the HECK r you supposed to dance to in the club, “American Terrorist”? LOL
