I'm a huge Lupe fan and I have been since F&L but I'm downloading the album. The reason I'm downloading it is because I don't want to support the predicament Lupe is in. This isn't the album Lupe wanted to make its the one the record label wanted him to make. He has already said that he doesn't like it and he's unhappy with it.
If the album is successful and makes lots of sales, his record label will make him make more albums like it. If it doesn't sell, they might give him more creative control, or drop him and if he gets dropped, he'll be able to sign somewhere else where he can get back to making music he/I like.
This makes a lot of sense to me. So it seems fans should boycott the album, download it.
Cause at this point I doubt Lupe cares anymore.
