108343434 Lupe Fiasco Reveals His Dark Past

Lately Lupe Fiasco has been revealing his darkest moments to the world of Hip Hop and fans.  In his new album Lasers, he talks about being suicidal and being the best lyricist.

It was all a build up from industry pressures, protests, and career make-or-break decisions. And with the new album “Lasers” out, the rapper spoke about the struggles he had along the way.

According to Lupe, Atlantic Records froze the budget for “Lasers” back in ’09, a blow that drove him to consider suicide.

“It follows you everywhere,” he told XXL of slipping into a deep depression. “The way you rationalize things gets titled through that mentality. In the song ‘Beautiful Lasers,’ that was literal. I own a ton of them.”

But now he’s back on top, that’s why he’s able to talk about it so freely. Besides that, he’s named himself the king lyricist.

“I can actually make the argument, seriously, that, ‘Yo, I’m better than all y’all,'” he explained. “You have people who can say that. Jay-Z can say that. Eminem can say that. Canibus can say that — if we are going line for line. If you want to relate me to the newer cats, let’s go. Let’s go line for line and bar for bar. If it’s all about spitting and metaphors and MCing and lyrics and entendres, I will eat 99 percent of you dudes up.”

“Lasers” is currently at the No. 16 spot on album charts.
