    No. lupEND is coming out. He’s just gna drop 3 quick albums which will get him off the his Trans-Atlantic Slave Deal first.

    ^
    No it isnt

    ^
    he aint Saigon. He’s more business savvy and after the cool, can hold more weight in the boardroom. remember he has his own imprint aswell. he can take it somewhere else.

    Where?…whos gonna wanna distribute a 3 disc album knowing it will not sell and knowing how long its gonna take to actually complete

  6. the real truth Says:

    i wanna heard lupEND badly, but three albums in the meantime isn’t exactly a negative is it.

    at least once he has all these albums under his belt ppl will give him the status he deserves.

    ^
    No…but we gotta see if he drops them…idk if Lupe is serious or he is shit talkin..prolly a lil of both. but i think LupeEnd bein postponed is a product of his rock-band

  7. TWC Says:

    Supposely, LupEnd was almost done. Plus Lupe has a pretty rabid fan base, he’ll deffintely come out n sell in the 150k to 200k range. I can think of alot of labels that would be happy to have a artist who is that steady nowadays.

    it WILL sell. and they’re coming out seperately anyway. and he’s prolly halfway thru.

    This fuckery prolly happened cos Atlantic wanted to hear it:

    White dude from Atlantic: Play me what you got so far
    Lupe: Umm, oookay?
    “This is L.U.P.E./ on my last cd coming straight for the masons and illuminati/ bildenberg group or niggas in fur suits/ Lupe, Allah Hu Akbar, chip in your head tryin to merk you”

    The bottom line is that I dont think the number of discs the album contains will have any impact on its success. If the singles dope and the buzz is up, it will sell. If that’s not the case, it won’t. Just that simple.

    Nelly’s 2 disc album didnt do well
    ^^
    It was two seperate albums released on the same day, and they both went platinum.

    Ice Cube never dropped a double album. It was a part 1 and 2 which dropped over a year apart.

    So we’re left with Street’s Disciple, the one I pointed out.

    Nah but foreal, it cost a triple to press 2 more disc, cost that we don’t exactly know about. Thats what i think niggas was talking about, like it might not benefit a label when his last joint went gold, not that i agree but that is the argument.

    Triple as in what ever it cost to actually press a disc, what ever that is.

  103. b-ease Says:

    so how do you figure LupeEnd which will not be at a basic price will sell?…

    ^^
    In all honesty, all the double discs I’ve copped as new releases (basically all the CD’s we mentioned above) were priced the same as the single disc new releases (maybe 2 to 3 dollars more at most). Which is to say, I don’t think there’s going to be a noticable price difference.

    Now, will the album be marked back up to like 29.99 after a year or so? No doubt. But it won’t matter then.

  104. Beezy Says:

    Lupe might as well just retire. CuDi is 2009 Lupe.
