Of course you can blame it on the label. Tical 0 was supposed to be a very different album, but the label wouldn't release it until he loaded it up with commercial Puffy beats. The contract he signed with Def Jam was 10 years previous, and early in his career he was given free reign to do whatever he saw fit on his albums. The label took that all away in 2004 and forced him to put out an album he was nowhere near comfortable with. Then Mef proceeded to torpedo that album in the press. After that, the chances of him getting another contract with a major was 0.
