Lupe Fiasco recently revealed that he became suicidal during the recording of his new album, Lasers. In a new interview, Lupe says that the release of B.O.B.’s hit single “Nothing On You” drove him to the edge.
“That was the tipping point,” says Lupe, who also recorded a version of the song that was rejected by his record label. “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 s**t, it f**ked me up.”
We don’t know about you, but after several months of hearing “Nothing On You” everywhere we went last year, we contemplated suicide too. #justsaying
