TDE President Laughs Off Lupe Fiasco's Biting Accusations Against Kendrick Lamar

Lupe Fiasco found himself the recipient a few choice words from Top Dawg Entertainment’s president Dave Free on Saturday (January 6). Earlier in the week, the Chi Town rap vet took to Twitter and claimedhe needed new cover art for his forthcoming album, Drogas Wave.

He alleged it was too similar toKendrick Lamar and SZA’s artworkfor the recently releasedBlack Panther‘s single, “All The Stars.”

“Even I admit this is a little too close for comfort,” he wrote. “damn now I guess I need a new album cover…thanx @theblankpanther.”

He added, “All black covers, backwards albums. Now this…I’m getting suspiciously delicious hahahha.”

Free soon came to Kung Fu Kenny and SZA’s defense on Twitter, laughing f Lupe’sclaim.

“@LupeFiasco go kick & push yourself into a tree with these wild allegations,” Free wrote, a reference to Lupe’s 2001Food & Liquor hit, “Kick, Push.”

Lupe responded in a since-deleted tweetwith a healthy dose sarcasm.

“I see what you did there,” he wrote. “However its rather impossible to skate into a tree because most trees are located in grass where skateboards dont actually work to well due to the wheels not really being optimal for traversing across such terrain. Now a car or say a well placed gate.”

DROGAS Wave is intended to serve as the follow-up to DROGAS Light, which Lupe released last year.
