Well this is pretty cool! Taking quite an unconventional approach to self-promotion (as he has a new album, Tetsuo & Youth, on the way,) Lupe Fiasco is currently offering up personalized verses for whoever has $500 to spare. A feature from an artist of his caliber typically can run you anywhere from $20k to somewhere in the 6 figure range, so this is an EXTREMELY good deal!
Struggle rappers – don’t get it confused, however. Lupe is sure to clarify that this is NOT a feature (which he apparently charges $50k for,) but simply a one-verse song made for only you. AKA, you can’t add a verse on the song and make it “featuring Lupe Fiasco.” Purchasers are required to pick the song up in-person, and pay the fee in cash while also signing a contract that outlines where, how and what you’ll be able to use the song for. Get the full 411 via Lupe’s tweets in the gallery. Will you be getting in on the offer?
