    Default Lupe Fiasco says that he doesn't want to be Jay-Z and be worth $400 Million



    Lupe talked to THE AGE in Australia, mainly discussing the conflicts he is/was going through with his label. Check it out below.

    Historically, there has been a conflict between the music Lupe wants to create and the music his label wants him to make.

    Lupe: ''It's less about me being a celebrity, because I guess I'm not really a celebrity,'' he says. ''The most difficult part of the music business is the label."

    "What I want to do and what they want me to do - creatively - is in conflict. It doesn't keep me up at night. I look at it as a challenge. It's not meant to be easy." - Hit the jump to read more!


    "There's a misunderstanding with my fanbase,'' he says. ''People [at Warner] feel they know my fans more than I do.

    They want me to step out of my comfort zone and step into theirs. I don't have necessarily the celebrity success they want me to have but it's more social success and being able to speak at a college about world affairs. That's a success, to me.

    I don't want to be Jay-Z and be worth $400 million and perform on every awards show. It's getting in touch with somebody who needs to improve their self-esteem, as opposed to driving a Bentley and putting some chains on.''

    Lupe's third album for Warner, Lasers, was submitted last month. The label has yet to announce a release date. ''It's an album we both feel comfortable putting out,'' Lupe says. ''I'm somebody saying the things that maybe 98 per cent of the music industry is not.''

    I think he's got the right attitude about it.

    In order to get that jay money he'd have to sell out in a sense...

    not sayin nothin bad about jay z cuz i love his music but if you compare lupe's music jay's

    Day Dreaming is nothing like Big Pimpin
    SuperStar is nothing like Give it to me

    Talkin about Singles of course...
