  • Lupe Fiasco

    This Chicago MC has had quite the fiasco when it comes to record labels. As part of the group da Pak, he was signed and dropped by Epic before he was 20, then passed around from Arista to Atlantic, the label he’s been publicly battling over the direction of his third album, Lasers. What Lupe Fiasco hasn’t had a hard time with is winning people over with his perceptive, lyrical style. He was lauded by Jay-Z, tapped by Kanye West (whose “Touch the Sky” he appeared on), has received Grammy nominations for both his 2006 debut Food & Liquor (“Daydreamin'” won for Best Urban/Alternative Performance) and its conceptual 2007 follow-up, The Cool. Perhaps the strongest affirmation, though, was when some 30,000 fans petitioned Atlantic Records to release Lasers.
