    I was with him...until he mentioned Big U. So you, as the smart ass knowledgeable man that you are and were then, decided what musical route you would take because a former feared OG gangbanger called you? What? This is the only problem I have with Lupe, he is probably the most skilled lyricist ever (to me) and he is genuinely intelligent, not just well read, but he always throws in some stupid/ignorant/street shyt in the mix, even when it's not necessary.

    You are way smarter and know far more about the music biz than Big U, shut up, it sounds like he forced you to stay, on some muscle shyt


    Whatever tho, Lupe is the guy who will talk about the way of the monk in one ig post then the next one he is showing off his guns

    cats need to realize this is a business.

    You have no leverage until you show you can make some money.
    What do they have to gain by pushing Lupe like that?

    Saigon too. Atlantic shelved his album and by the time it came out his buzz was completely gone.

    My theory on that album shelving is pretty much the subject matter. Saigon was talking a lot of street knowledge shyt and calling out crakkkas repeatedly.

    That album didn't get shelved for nothing.

    Lyor Cohen was the most visible culture vulture in rap and nikkaz like young thug literally called him daddy but he signed that fakkit to a dead end deal and bailed ship to youtube. Left him there looking like a b*stard child after all the homosexual marketing tactics :laff:

    Wait so was Big U generally his friend or in his pockets?

    Aside from that what they tried to do to Lupe was fukked up but glad he was one of the smart ones who avoided all that bullshyt.

    Sheeit - muthafuccin' Black Sheep aired Lyor out before then...

    ...but nobody was trying to hear that because they were "irrelevant" at that point.
    ...but they got less hits than most Atlantic (and Def Jam) artists Lyor handled, and they can still eat off that one hit today -
    so y'all tell me who's right...
