This was a pretty weak interview. This has been a weird year for Lu. Multiple album title changes. Potential label issues. Atlantic not pushing Shining Down despite the 40k+ itunes sales the first week. His re-entry into The Underground by leaking numerous tracks and one of the year's dopest mixtapes, ENEMY OF THE STATE, due to his exclusion from MTVs hottest rapper list. A fresh leak off LASERS thats Lu's taking legal action against....All of this has gone on within the past year and LaProphecy asks about guest appearances, Top 5 Dead or alive (while failing to limit it to RAP), and advice for up and comers???? How generic can you get? Classic cookie cutter interview. No research necessary. Do better Allhiphop.com. Do Better.

At least you were on point about The Labels. Independent = Music Major = Money You just have to go into it with your priorities straight, and realize you're gonna take a loss either way you go. You're either gonna have to give up a bit of artistic integrity and control in order to make a profit and reach a larger audience, or you're going to have to grind out the loss of profit in order to put out the music you want and market the best you can and hope people pick up on it.

"stay independendent".....wise advice....no need to be tied down to the majors. I'm definately expecting lupe's finest and most explicit content on lasers.

Lupe is a genius & is so articulate & intellectual. I can't wait for albums to release & I completely agree w/ AHOLIDAYLIKEBILLIE

That was a serious top 5 dead or alive... I feel like he really speaks from his heart about industry matters. Like a lot of artists are too careful about stepping on the toes of their label execs and what not. It's like "yo you're something like a leech my man... Stay away from my art please because ultimately you are the type of people that I am battling here..."
