Lupe Fiasco Speaks On Being Suicidal

Most people dont really know the drama that goes on behind the scenes of the entertainment industry. Especially for artists who know their lane and know exactly the type of music they should make. Unfortunately in today's music industry many artists are forced to make the music the labels think they should make as opposed to what they actually desire to make.

Lupe is promoting his new album, "Lasers" & he opens up to thhe Guardian about his fight with his label, Atlantic..he had to get a petition from fans (30,000) for them to release the album. He also talks about how them not releasing, "Nothing On You" as his record and watching it become a hit with Bruno Mars and B.O.B. caused him much mental stress and strain.. peep his comments after the jump!

I hate 'Lasers..I don't hate the music, but I hate the process. When I look at it, I don't see song titles and artwork, I see the fight - I see the emotions, the blood, sweat and tears. There are a couple of songs on there that I love; but Lasers is a little bit of what you love, a little bit of what you like, and a lot of what you had to do...That was the tipping point..It was less about the bruised ego but more the audacity of it. It was mentally destructive. I say it with a certain laissez-faire now because I'm past it, but back then, hearin' that sh**, it f***ed me up. I was super-depressed, lightly suicidal, at moments medium suicidal - and if not suicidal, willing to just walk away from it all completely."
This industry is tough!
