The Moment: In April 2010, with his fans still desperately hanging onto the hope that Lasers would one day drop, Lupe released a bonus cut on the soundtrack for The Twilight Saga: New Moon, prompting some fans to label him a sell out.
The Reaction: Lupe took to his MySpace blog (Sidebar: Why did Lupe still have a MySpace blog in early 2010?!? We digress...) to shoot back: "I'm not SELLING OUT by doing a song for NEW MOON...People thought I 'SOLD OUT' when I did "Kick, Push."
Did It Help or Hurt His Career? HELP! Sell out or not, a song on the soundtrack to one of the biggest flicks of 2010 is a good look. We're saw Lu saw a couple bucks off that contribution.
