Lupe Fiasco Explains His All-Black Album Art & His Explanation Isn’t As Cool As You’d Think (Video)Posted by Danielle Harling on 09/19/12 | Filed under Videos, Lupe Fiasco
I'm sure a lot of people were hoping that there was some kind of momentous and awe-inspiring reason why Lupe Fiasco went the all-black route for his "Food & Liquor 2" cover and in actuality it turns out that there really isn't. During an interview with Music Feeds TV, Lupe revealed that he chose the all-black cover to kind of mess with his label and to see if something so bold would fly with Atlantic. (Head to the 2:00 mark for the full explanation.)
"It was more to get like, can I get the label to do that, you know? Can I make that happen? Can I say 'Hey, I don't wanna put anything in the album and I wanna make that happen?' It was like a challenge almost," Lupe explained. "I had to go through some legal battles and some wrangling and back and forth so it wasn't as easy as I thought to put nothing in there. This was like one of the hardest albums that I had to do with putting nothing in it."
Yeah, that wasn't terribly exciting.
