Lupe Fiasco Felt 'Suicidal' After Losing 'Nothin' on You' to B.o.B


Lupe Fiasco Felt 'Suicidal' After Losing 'Nothin' on You' to B.o.B


When the chairman of Atlantic Records gave the single to B.o.B instead of him, Lupe Fiasco felt devastated and upset.

Rapper Lupe Fiasco fell into a deep depression after record label bosses gave his track "Nothin' on You" to B.o.B and admits he felt "suicidal" over the snub. The hip-hop star wrote and recorded verses for the song in 2009, but the chairman of Atlantic Records told him his performance was no good and handed the track to another artist.

And Fiasco reveals he hit rock bottom after losing the song, which went on to become a global smash for B.o.B and score three Grammy Award nominations. He tells Britain's The Guardian, "That was the tipping point. It was less about the bruised ego but more the audacity of it. It was mentally destructive. I say it with a certain laissez-faire now because I'm past it, but back then, hearin' that s**t, it f**ked me up."

"I was super-depressed, lightly suicidal, at moments medium suicidal - and if not suicidal, willing to just walk away from it all completely."
