Looks like Atlantic is going to try to milk B.o.B for as much as they can get. The Radio is going to love B.o.B this summer with that T. Swift single.

I doubt they want Lu and B.o.B competing for mainstream attention. Safest play is to fully back the horse that's going to bring in the most revenue.



Which means F&L II could very well fly under mainstream radars :slick:


Thank you B.o.b and your Hip Pop music!!!!

Lu about to drop a classic!!!


-Fuck Busy.

I hope F&L2 doesn't fly under mainstream radar

It is possible for the album to be great and still have mainstream success (The Cool)

Atlantic can do whatever the hell they want with his albums. He always manages to deliver with those mixtapes tho. :datass:

not gunna happen buddy, lupe already has mainstream success- as does B.O.B. why would the label only want ONE?
B.o.B. will probably have more mainstream success. Just look at his features: Taylor Swift, Lil Wayne, Nikki Minaj, Chris Brown, and...Morgan Freeman.

Yeah I agree. I didn't really mean it in that way. I meant basically I want an album that isn't just loaded with singles that can be picked to promote at any point which causes the album to lack cohesion.  I definitely want Lu to get some recognition though.

Atlantic wants singles more than anything, and B.o.B. is way better at getting chart toppers than Lupe. That being said, it might have to do with the fact that all of B.o.B.'s hits were meant for Lupe, so I wonder how much it has to do with the artist.

Not it didn't

That album was huge in my school. I didn't even like Lupe back then. It was annoying how they all dick rode him in 08. The first time I heard HHSML was in class when a student played it and the whole class said STACK THAT CHEESE together lol

yeah i agree but skylar grey and trey songz aren't much better. what im saying is the label doesn't care if it has 1 mainstream artist- the more the merrier in their eyes

Taylor Swift, Lil Wayne, Nikki Minaj, and Chris Brown are huge names. Those alone scream mainstream attention. But you have to look at it from a business stand point. Promotion costs a lot. What's the point of fully promoting an artist who is certainly going to leave once his contract runs out? It'll just cause him to get big and later become competition.

Plus, Atlantic doesn't want to go through what they did with Lasers. Bad publicity is never good. Plus, it took forever. That whole time Lupe wasn't making them any money. Might as well bet the pot on someone who wants it, B.o.B
