As you already know, B.o.B.’s chart topper “Nothin On You” was intially intended for Lupe Fiasco. Lu told UK’s The Guardian, that after his version did not live to the label’s expectations, he contemplated offing himself or calling it quits.
“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.”
