Lupe Fiasco Recounts the Time L.A. Reid Told Kanye West He Should ‘Stick to Making Beats’

Lupe Fiasco recently recounted the time L.A. Reid told Kanye West he should “stick to making beats”

During an interview with Fake Shore Drive host Andrew Barber, Fiasco says “We brought ‘Ye into Arista to showcase for L.A. Reid before Roc-A-Fella. Stack Bundles was sitting there… imagine it’s me, Stack Bundles, Kanye, and L.A. Reid in the office,” Lupe said.  “When [Kanye] stopped [rapping], L.A. was like, ‘Yo you should stick to making music, stick to making beats.’ So that’s why I always honor Ye, no matter how crazy he goes. I’ve seen that man struggle.”
