1-why would he just make music for free dude has to eat at the end of the day...even if hes making the songs he wants to...dude still wants to get paid
3- those where songs he did HAVE artistic stake in like "shining down" "goto sleep" and "beaming"
that's why i meant, he should make the "record label songs" that he doesn't like and put those on the album to get paid. then release the songs that he personally likes (but the label didn't put on the album) online. it's a win-win, no? the complex interview made it seem that these "record label songs" are super easy for lupe to do. why doesn't he just sit down, spend a month or two making three albums worth of crappy songs that the label likes, fulfill his contractual obligations, then bounce. then he'll have the rest of his career to get a new deal and make albums how he wants to.
