Saying He Hates His Own Album

When? February 2011

What happened? After many delays and much friction with his label, Lupe found that the experience of making his last album, LASERS, left a bad taste in his mouth. “I listen to it and I’ll like some of the songs,” he told Complex last year. “But when I think about what it took to actually get the record together and everything that I went through on this record—which is something I can’t separate—I hate this album. A lot of the songs that are on the album, I’m kinda neutral to. Not that I don’t like them, or that I hate them. It’s just I know the process that went behind.”

Complex says: Totally understandable. If you go through hell to make something, it’s going to be tough to forget those memories. But you already know—the show goes on.
