Kid Cudi Says Lupe Fiasco's Swindling Fans With Personalized $500 Verses; Fiasco Responds

Lupe Fiasco calls Kid Cudi his competitor after Cudder questions what Lu' is doing with the money he makes off personalized verses.

Lupe Fiasco announced on August 20 that he would be personalizing verses for his fans for $500. 

"I will personalize a 1 verse song for you. $500. You pick the instrumental, mood & subject. 1 physical copy which you must come pick up," the rapper said on Twitter.

Yesterday (August 21), Kid Cudi questioned this move. 

"What are you doing with the money your making from this @LupeFiasco . Are u givin some of this money ur about to make to a charity orrrr??" Cudi said. 

Lupe Fiasco and Cudi went on to exchange several messages following this, which can be seen below.

    I wonder how Sean Price feel about this? He was charging fans a stack for him to spit 16 on some'n. Cudi trying keep his fans money to his self. He told his fans "You can spend fiteen on that nigga But not 5hunid!!" HaHa I heard that Cudi. "Mo. Money. For. Me." HaHaaaaa

    • DeGRANDE

      Anything less than a stack for 16 is pretty cheap. Especially for a nigga of Lupe caliber. Cudi. U muthafucking trippin'!

    Lupe's in the right here, as much as I respect both niggas Cudi is in over his head. He's making it more than it has to be rappers get big paystubs from features it's only fair that if any low bony producer wants to send a beat to Lupe he gotta pay the price for it... shit does he want Lupe to do it 100$ a pop or somethin? Lupe gon end up using up all his fuckin lines

    I wouldn't mind paying 500 hundred to hear Lupe da Gawd drop a verse especially for me

    Reply if your dumb ass had to google "swindling" to find out what is means

    It's crazy sometimes, when ever I look in the mirror. All I see is white body with black attire. When I talk I hear a accent that is not mine. I say the word nigga to all of my white friends, but when around African Americans I don't. Hmmm what is wrong with me? I know I'm not the only one here who feels like this.

    As much as I think Lupe is annoying, I have to say he has a knack for shutting down cats. I also appreciate how he handles Dizaster with whom is a hypocrite on the way Lupe responds, but yet abides by the same accusations.

      Well obviously your full of shit and bullshitting considering that it is well known, and documented that he was outside protesting against his label: http://blogs.suntimes.com/music/2010/10/the_fiasco_surrounding_lupe_fi.html So go fuck yourself.

      what 15 year old knows the phrase "gift of gab" knucklehead Lupe's "political awareness" and "shut down talk to cats" seems to disappear when he's in front of "company" discussing his "creative control" and contractual status to the point he has to sell $500 personal verses. Why can't he score more "placements" after his hit song last year? He ain't fooling me, stop waving the pom poms and see for yourself O recording industry guru.

      Obviously you don't know the politics involved with contracts and being signed to a label. Are you below the age of 15?

      Amazing how Lupe can "shut down cats" but can't use that gift of gab when it's time to talk to Atlantic Records' staff.

    Cudder could talk shit if he wasn't moaning over psychedelic beats for he last three albums... So sad too, check out kid cudis west wood freestyle, this kid could spit too, and it was enjoyable to listen top, then he goes from being a rapper to a moaner over weird beats...hoping he makes a rap album again

    I don't understand this...What is a personalized verse? A ghost written verse?

    • Number Two

      A verse being personalized for a specific person is when the person/fan picks on a topic(s) for the artist, and the artist writes about that particular topic in one song. That's what I thought it was. I don't think it's necessarily ghost written.

  • Real Talk

    I can't stop thinking about Drake

  • Into the Storm

    I don't respect people who gotta ask somebody to write them personal verses Puffy>>>Sauce Money - I.ll Be Missing You

    • Number Two

      I don't think the personalized verse is ghost written. Lupe Fiasco is going to write the verse, but it would be about the particular person that paid $500, or it would be about a particular topic the person wanted Lupe to rap about.
