Lupe Fiasco Says He Could Soon Be Off Atlantic Records
The tumultuous relationship between Lupe Fiasco and his label Atlantic Records appears to be finally coming to an end. After battles over musical content and release dates for his albums, Lupe revealed on Twitter that he is in negotiations for his next LP Tetsuo & Youth to be his last one released through Atlantic.
Lupe’s latest project had been in limbo for over a year. According to reports, the Chicago rapper’s fifth studio album was only given a release date after the hacktivisit group Anonymous threatened Atlantic. Hours after Anonymous issued a public ultimatum, the label revealed Tetsuo & Youth will be dropping on January 20.
Chill is still negotiating the terms but it's looking like Tetsuo & Youth will be my last album with Atlantic Records.— Lupe Fiasco (@LupeFiasco) December 8, 2014
