Lupe Fiasco Responds To Prolyfic's Claims

Lupe Fiasco says the Chicago producer has no right or knowledge to question his status in Hip Hop.

After former collaborating producer and friend Prolyfic had some choice words for Lupe Fiasco this past weekend concerning his album’s current status, the Chicago rapper responded via Twitter to counter the harsh criticism.

While Prolyfic blamed the delay of Lasers on his belief that it had no hit singles for Atlantic Records to get behind, Lupe stated, “PRO!...my man...[you’re] not my manager...fall back...take all that ‘advice’ and further your career with it.”

As the two Chicago artists haven’t worked together since 2006’s Food & Liquor, he continued, “You put yourself on the outside...so don't be salty now that [you’re] being treated like an outsider…My career is mine. And I'll proceed with it how I wish. [You’re] ignorant to my situation and why WE move how WE do. Speak what you know, not what you think you know.”

Fiasco added, “Frankly you know very little. But I KNOW you lil bro, I'm the reason they even know you at all…I pray you sell a few beats the same way [you’re] selling yourself right now. When the music stops who's gonna have a chair to sit in?”

Though finished, Lupe Fiasco’s Lasers is still awaiting an official release date.

    I wish some rapper would diss Lupe just so I can hear Lupe trash on the dude with his lyrics

  • bigjake55

    Lupe put dude in check nice

  • relative

    it's funny how the post about prolyfic has way more shit in it than Lupe's response. i follow Lupe on twitter and he had way more positive tweets than what hiphopdx reported, wtf? you guys put out all the bullshit pro says, but leave out all the positive shit Lupe was saying. you guys need to get real and stop promoting bullshit.

  • Kimmy

    That response was short, sweet and well put! So, okay! Moving on!!!

  • NC King

    The truth is a funny thing! The truth is that both Lupe and Pro are right. Pro is NOT Lupe's manager and can't possibly know whats going on with Lupe's situation. And yeah, i don't know who he is outside of being Lupe's producer. But.... Lupe does march to his own drum too much. He won't make a record that the industry can promote. He won't compromise which is a bad thing in his case. He needs the exposure. Think of it like this, we forgive Drake for "Find Your Love" because he puts "Fireworks" on the album.

    It does make sense that atlantic would hold back lasers becuz they want lupe to make music like the bs on the radio. I mean they shelved big boi's album becuz he wouldn't change his music for so called hits. So fuck pro and any dumb ass who thinks lupe should basically sell out and dumb it down. Becuz like lu said he aint dumbing down shit....

    I kinda remember Kick,Push & Daydreamin all over the radio and TV stations(back when they played music vids) not to mention Superstar. So uhhh...what the fuck y'all talkin bout?

  • ImFromDaSouth 239/404

    To be truthfully Lupe is exactly right, but your boy Pro had some good points. It's just all about if you willing to go out of your element to get more attention. Fuck it LUPE dumb your singles down and real the fans in who aint feeling your style and then kill em with knowledge throughout the CD:) Nah, my nigga do you. "Cause them deer can't see u(s) like hunters".-Lupe-

    Aint a hater on LUPie! But this nigga is getting tost! By tha fucked up industry... He's coming under deep pressure about where he's at right now in the game with such talent its a fucken shame and a fucking waste to continue .... All yall like he can do what he wants yeah he can with no Buzz No Insurance policy..... Just a crushed up can in a allay

  • Eco

    Lyrically no one is messing w Lu! He needs to drop Friend of the people for the fans though. It would at least be something positive amidst all this bs w Atlantic and Pro.

    • Lashannon

      I'd like to say that Eco got a point, sometimes hard decisions have to be made in order to even smell; let alone taste success! I've been writing lyrics for almost 10 yrs now, and the only reason I haven't tried to start my rap career is b/c I'm preoccupied with this Army life. Keep pushing Lu; you off the chain in my book homie!

  • FREE YA MIND

    its lupe's music. he can make what ever he feels. thats what music is for to express your feelings, and lupe according to his last few songs that realesed like BMF and that japanese cartoon shit, u can tell that hes not down with the industry shit or the government. people need to realize that all this mainstream lollypop, bubblegum, tight jeans, party bullshit songs is a tool for 'them' to clog our mind all this mtv shit like jersey shore is used against to turn us to ignorant zombies in society, so we can be easier to control. im glad lupe is this way now makeing music that actually means something.. and i know alot of people that read this are gonna talk shit calling me crazy but i know some people know what im talking about!! READ BETWEEN THE LINES, LOOK BEYOND THE TELIVISION, DONT BE BLIND, RESEARCH AND FIND THAT TRUTH IS NEVER GIVING, THEY MAKE MONEY OFF OF PRISON AND CALL IT A REMEDY, FUCK THE AUTHORITIES , YOU FIND A COP IN NEED YOU LET HIM BLEED!. Strait up

    • 10hustle

      peace my g respect

    • MightyMike27

      that last part was a little extreme brah lol but yeah it's Lupe's music.. I love that Japanese Cartoon shyt, I used to be a rocker tho, but I'm just waiting for this album man.. Maybe it was a mistake signing with that label. Whatever, I just need some new Lupe Music man.. I'm feening lol

  • gurilla jones

    ...eh still a very talented,smart boring rapper .....

    • Geno The King of Godz

      Was the shot at the armed forces necessary?

    • that sucked

      @lashannon just because you've written some raps when you're not getting shot at doesn't make you guru of anything. the whole world is "zombitized," especially the armed forces... that said, lupe is kind of boring, flow-wise. His subject matter and lyrics? Not at all, but his delivery sometimes does leave a lot to be desired. It's like Charles Hamilton. Dude drops some insane lyrics, but he sounds like he doesn't give a damn. And if the artists don't give a damn, why the hell should we?

    • Lashannon

      Gurilla Jones; really? Boring? Do you put in any work in the music industry? Do you even listen to what Lu spits; I guess you're already zombitized; boring is that racket you hear on tv that's geared towards people who don't listen to the actual damn song; the lyrics are what count pimp! Enlighten yourself.

    • MightyMike27

      boring? whatever man, why waste my time trying to change your mind

  • nicknashville

    i just want some more yoga flame shit, lupe is the greatest lyricist alive, dead, or that will ever walk the earth

  • Jinjokage

    @MightyMike27 "Puppets Lupe your on point soN.. These fools don't realize the music should be first, not endorsements. PeacE.. " Dude truer words haven't been spoken in this post. These clowns are yelling for "hits" and "Jay-Z co-signs". Every song I've heard performed live from this album is dope. Can we talk about that?

    • Du-Che

      Scream isn't on Lasers , Lupe stated that

    • Jinjokage

      Nah nah the Alicia Keys track is definitely not off the L.A.S.E.R.S. album. It was scrapped a while back. You can youtube some of the live tracks by the way. Look up "State Run Radio" and "Scream".

    • MightyMike27

      You lucky dog, u seen em perform the new album? Damn if this F'n album never comes out, you'll be one lucky bastard to have witnessed that lol But it gotta come out sooner or later, Heard that track with Alicia Keys tho, wasn't really digging that too much, still can't wait though.. LUPE!!

  • Charles ExSavior

    I'm still convinced that as of right now Lupe's album is shelved due to weak material, and it's not on the strength of Pro's outburst. For real, the album was allegedly finished for a while, so the only reason why a label won't put it out is because of lack of marketability and buzz. Bloggers and commentators can scream all day that they want it, but radio stations and whatnot will (sadly) prove otherwise. But if things are really true like throwing tantrums on his fans grabbing his leaked music, that's Lupe's start on burying his own career. I guess as fans there's nothing we can do but watch.

  • LUPEFIASCO49

    who the fuck is prolyfic? lol u doesnt know a hit from shit. but even if he was right, lupe has a huge fanbase(myself included) that doesnt want anything that atlantic can play on the radio. thats why they have flo rida and other pop mainstream artists for

  • Doc Hol

    Not everybody wants to be the next Jay Z some artists wanna be true to themselves and their craft their not jus in it for money, they don't buy hundreds of thousands of copies of their own albums like Jay Z does. Some artists are tryin to make music with TIMELESS content not jus some catchy shit for the moment that appeals to the billions of dumb fucks on Earth today. Pro's jus a bitter bitch cryin coz lupes not fuckin wit him n by callin Lupe out n cosignin wack fucks like Drake n Wayne he's hopin it'll get him their attention to hopefully sell some beats, dudes transparent...

  • cross

    hahahaha LASERS would have dropped already if LUPE would have kept the single "NOTHIN ON YOU".. ooo well... b.o.b sounded better on it anyways.. dont question the knowledge.. im an AnR... BUT.. i cant wait for lasers... lupe just needs his bullshit "kick push" single to market it.

    • that sucked

      true. i mean, i love the lyrics, but shoot...to get the album to sell, you need a single. you can talk about doing it "for the fans" and "f*** the industry" all you want...you're a rapper. at the end of the day, you're doing it because you want to get paid off of your skills (either money, which is the usual, or motivating people to enact change.) YOU CAN'T DO THAT if you're allowing your album to sit on the shelves/can't get it out to the masses.

  • MightyMike27

    DAAAAAMMMNNN!!! TREATED!! hahaha, Lupe is on point, treated Prolyfic's life, and was right about everything. Who the fuck is Prolyfic? Lupe I'm digging the music soN... I was getting frustrated waiting for the album, "Japanese Cartoon" bought you some time. Loving that shyt right now... Lupe!!

  • Em fan #1

    Yeah being smart has never sold. actually smart characters are usually the boring/preachy/corny/Urkel type characters so that intellegent bullshit only appeals to a the minimum. Unfortunatly its not something people pride themselves for. And those who do pride themselves for being smart are looked down as smary or self absorbed. I'm not saying that Lupe should dumb it down, but he needs a gimmick to sell himself. He NEEDS hits to be considered a Biggie or Jay-Z. We all praise Biggie but let's be real he had bullshit hits. He just had hell of a flow and production to make up for it. Look Lu keep on doing what he's doing, but don't be afriad of slick production. He can even keep the message and the flow with the hits but he NEEDS hits to stay relevant.

    • Lashannon

      you hit it on the head EM FAN; if you ain't giving it your all; people will see it b/c that's who you trying to please for the must part; the fans; you do it for them as well as yourself! Keep spitten Lupe!

    • LIFE ACCORDIN' TO DUTCH

      FUC U MEAN BIG HAD BULLSHIT HITS..U STAY IN THAT LIL WACK ASS EMINEM BUBBLE (AN ARTIST WHO NOBODY I KNOWS PLAYS) AND SHUT THE FUCK UP TALKIN ABOUT REAL ARTISTS AND REAL SHIT..U DONT EVEN MAKE SENSE..HOW THE FUC U HAVE A HELL OF A FLOW,AND GOOD PRODUCTION BUT EQUATE THAT WITH BULLSHIT "HITS"..DUMMIE...BIG HAD TWO A;BUMS WITH SICKER "WORDPLAY" AND MORE QUOTABLES THAN 99% OF THE NIGZ THAT CAME AFTER HIM OR BEFORE..THE FACT IS U MAKE NO SENSE...HIS FLOW IS THE REASON FOR MOST OF THESE COMPLEX RHYME SCHEMES AND LUPE'S LAST "HIT" WAS iM BEAMING..A BANGER WITH GREAT WORDPLAY AND A GOOD BEAT..A RETURN TO HIS ROOTS..U R A LAME

  • franoc

    Even a blind man can see that PRO was speaking out of sheer bitterness. People don't just wake up and decide to go in like that. Dude is hurting about something. He sounded desperate for attention.

    • Lashannon

      FRANCO, you right about that; when a man's pockets are on E, he will do anything to trying and change that; even HATE!!! Seen it too many times and the formula is the same; the outcome only gets worse in nature as time goes along. He sour.

  • ShowTimeNY

    Man come on Has anyone heard his First Mixtapes? Thats the lupe I want to hear and not because it was Hustler Laced but Because I could get into the lyrics More. Food Liqour I bumped for awhile. But the Cool gets no spins from me. Pro has a point.. Name calling was not necessary and probably said out of frustration. It was insightful criticism. Everyone Knows he's talented. Put it this way if you wanted to make Lupe more successful what would you advise him to do. Would it not be some of the things Pro said? On another note IM feeling that Beaming Joint. Now if Atlantic didnt release his album that makes me wonder what direction the other songs are cause that track is hot. But when I think about the Cool. He had Superstar was Hot. And Hip Hop Saved my Life was real relatable ... Then You get the album think you'll get more of that but he hits you with some other shit. Thats why I didnt get into that album. So whats wrong with Lupe making more songs Like Superstar and Hip Hop Saved my Life? Isnt what Pro is really saying?

    • burnblue

      You and I, Showtime, we're on the same page Except one thing: I don't need more songs like those singles off the Cool. I need more like I'm Beaming (but marketable)

    • Preem

      Man...y'all are funny...everything isnt meant to be 'bumped' to!! However, i had Lupe 'The Cool' in the deck for the longest. But im a diehard for lyracism! Lupe, truely, is one of the SICKEST...arguably THE SICKEST to spit gems!! The way he crafts his lines, and really...with the knowledge that he posseses and how he throws in words, schemes, info, meta4orz, punchlines, wordplay...Lupe is engenious! He's really in a class of his own. Now when i first heard The Cool, it caught me off gaurd, b/c of the way he raps and the production. Musically, T/C was incredible-The Cool, Gold Watch, Intruders, Streets On Fire, -Lyrically, the joint Put You On Game (OMG!!!), Little Weapon....to me..if you take GO Baby, Hi-Definition (which isnt all that bad), and Paris, Tokyo off the Album, its a classik HANDS DOWN!! Im wit Lupe...whatever happens to him! the kid is not from this planet! And when he speaks...u have no clue whats gonna come out (unlike alot of artist today) Lupe keeps you intrigued! His minds a rubix cube...that niggaz ILL!!!! LUPE THE KILLA!!!!

    • LUPEFIASCO49

      go listen to wack-a flocka fag if u want that shallow shit.. lupe gets deep in those other songs and i guess its not your style. Showtime, you're listening to the wrong hip hop for your taste. here are some people i suggest to you: gucci man, waka flocka, new ludacris, lil wayne, and brisco

    • LIFE ACCORDIN' TO DUTCH

      @ MIGHTYMIKE..THE COOL WAS ACTUALLY ON FOOD AND LIQUOR

    • LIFE ACCORDIN' TO DUTCH

      CO-SIGN FROM A CHICAGO NIGGA..FOOD AND LIQUOR WAS ON POINT BEATWISE..U KNOW THE LYRICS IS THERE..THE COOL DIDNT HAVE NO BASS ON IT..THATS AN AUTOMATIC LOST...IF U CANT RIDE TO IT..HOW U GON RELATE TO THE CONTENT...IT WAS SOME OF THAT LET ME BE COOL IN MY SKINNY JEANS SHIT..FUC OUTTA HERE..AND I FUCS WIT LUPE..IM BEAMIN ON THE OTHER HAND IS WHERE ITS AT..I GET MY ENERGY..FROM MY INNER G..CLASSIC SHIT

    • MightyMike27

      You probably don't understand the content of his rhymes in "The Cool", Lupe's one of the few cats you gotta go online sometimes and read his lyrics. Cause shit is deep. Food & Liquor was a Classic Album. The Cool Was Sick as shyt, not as great as Food & liquor but still amazing.. From "The Cool" to "The Fighters" to "Gold Watch" on and on, that CD was just sick... People are hating on Lupe and I'm done listening to them. But anywayz... Lupe your dragging with the album, or your record label is, either way, I'm feening soN, I need that Lupe Shyt..

  • Greg246

    Ya'll didn't even post the best parts of his response. He ether'ed Pro to eternity.

  • jesterdx

    Those comments from Lupe makes him sound like he wants to be the next 50... Dont get me wrong Pro shouldnt have said shit but there wass no need for Fiasco to body him like that especially over a fuckin social network! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    • Lashannon

      Truth be told; Lupe should have had more restraint; if he knows how to handle business then do that and just that; but let the petty shit go. No matter what you do for others; you don't have to throw it back in their faces the moment they make a bad move; or say fucked up comments at times; let them be them and you continue to travel that road you been on until the wheels fall off and all you got left is the axle! Really though; Pro step your game up and Lupe; keep kickin and pushin pimp; that's the best I can say about that.

    • Adamsfam

      Th comment do not make him sound like anything other than a man....A man responds when another man calls him out like he knows what going on in another man's like...worry about self and you will be blessed....Lupe has a right to say what he feel...so stop always comparing people to other people!

    Hey check out the new Skee TV video on Teruo Artistry... it's dope! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VRX9HLLHxxE

  • Docdasuess

    You dickridin lames is not getting the point... Pro is trying to tell us that he aint even hittin up SOUNDTRAKK for beats anymore. Lupe hasn't been hot since "Everybody Nose" Remix ... The Cool was cool but nothing like FOOD AND LIQUOR. PRO IS RIGHT. LUPE (like so many other Conscious rappers) IS OUTCASTING HIMSELF ON PURPOSE. Seriously: How do you go from JAYZ endorsing you to NO ENDORSEMENTS

    • MightyMike27

      Wow you guys surprise me. You guys want nothing but hits huh? Fucking Pop Puppets. Don't get mad at Lupe cause he's trying to make Hip Hop Classics for the hardcore knowledgeable heads. Puppets.. Lupe your on point soN.. These fools don't realize the music should be first, not endorsements. PeacE..

    • WestCoAsT10101

      Lupe is on tour right now,thats endorsement from Atlantic fools,plus The Cool was better than Food & Liquor all day.Lupe is building up his buzz by holding off the album,Hes probably telling Atlantic Records lets keep em waiting a lil while to get them hyped,then he'll drop a bomb on yall clowns youll see

    • Docdasuess

      Yeah he got called the KICK PUSH guy but he was also the "JAYZ NEW PROTEGE" guy... he lost his buzz and people forgot him cuz he couldnt keep up with music rihanna was the PON DE REPLAY girl then the SOS GIRL and now shes a fuckin star cuz she kept her buzz up.....

    • Duh

      I mean seriously, Pro acts like everyone knew who Lupe was when F & L came out. The Cool actually sold more than F & L when Lupe became less popular among the minority who are avid fans. That whole Jay-Z endorsed you shit is played out by now. And Lupe's been featured with popular artist, most recently ithink B.O.B. Not like he pulled a magic trick. PLUS the albums done, Atlantic just need to release it. I in all seriousness think Atlantic should either release so it can go AT LEAST Gold like we all know it will, or let Lupe go so he can run the independant scene along with Rhymesayers. Be better for him financially and musically imo.

    • Duh

      Who replies to their own post? Anywho, Lupes a grown man and will do as he wish. The Cool> F&L on a side note. Both in my opinion were classic but The Cool was basically an Audible Book if you link it back to "the cool" song off Food & Liquor. Underrated by So called fans and was way more listenable. Who says he has no endorsements? Has anyone taken the time to think just maybe the MAJORITY of people who buy albums doen't like Lupe. He was never an accesible mainstream artist to start with. Ask someone randomly and they'll more than likely call him the "Kick, Push" rapper, not the "F & L was a great album" rapper.

    • Docdasuess

      Conscious Rappers purposely avoid GOOD MUSIC it feels like sometimes... Seriously CUDIs album for example. Wheres my day n nites? just abuncha wack

    • Docdasuess

      Seriously... the cool was made FOREVER AGO. Get some albums under your belt before you be acting like 2010 Jay-z hipster mode.

  • NYYstateofmind

    lupe has tons of talent but he needs to get back to his food and liqour style or even the cool. it seems like he is going in an entirely different direction. but i guess he is just maturing as an artist.

    • Lashannon

      Very well put; maturity makes changes in you constantly; he needs his time and then you'll see what he can really do; we already got a taste of it; I want more.

    • Docdasuess

      Yeah my dude u rite. But maturing on your (still unreleased) JUNIOR album? lol thats lame. Niccas on their 4th or 5th album by now?

  • Joe_Kerr

    hell most artist create album witout "hits" hov used to do it he did it wit american gangster so u dont need "hits" to hav a hot album or get on the radio ppl these days think u do

    • charlesrmusic

      slow up my man, "I Know" was no hit. A great song yes, but that was not a mainstream single in the sense of the word. "Roc Boys" i think i'll have to give to you but it could go either way. Remember that the first single off that was "Blue Magic" which we can hardly call a mainstream single. That thing was one cohesive piece of work. And it went platinum. So let's chill with all that "Lupe's album has no hits stuff." The only opposing argument that makes sense is that Lupe can't do what Jay can do. And only time will tell...

    • truexile

      Hmmm...AG didnt have any hits? "Roc Boys" and "I Know" got major play (radio and clubs) and were banging! Even "Blue Magic" was cool. Roc Boys and Blue Magic were on Billboards Top 100. So yea, you gotta have "hits". The point is Lupe can't make a "smart single" like Jay does without compromising who he is as an artist. Something dope lyrically, with a dope beat that can sell or at least knock in the club. Lord knows i dont bump Lupe in the whip on the way to the club. But, I like Lupe as an artist, and hes definitely one of the best lyrically but he better play ball before he ends up like Saigon.

  • INOA

    Lupe is that dude. Better than all the TI's of the world and all them niggaz getting spins right now.

  • jajahasthelala

    Lupe is one of the most talented artists in the game..if his album "doesnt have a hit" it would still prolly be on of the best albums of the year..count on that

  • Murphs56

    Lasers needs a damn date...the anticipation is killin me
