Speaking of Fiascos…
Lupe Fiasco is one of my favorite rappers out there. His two albums Food and Liquor and The Cool are phenomenal and his concept tracks revolving around “The Game” (look them up if you haven’t heard them) are simply amazing. Seeing Trev’s post on “Go to Sleep” hyped me up for more Lupe.
I’ve been waiting for 2 years now, however, for his next album. Initially it was supposed to be his final album, LupE.N.D but he has since changed his mind and put his final contribution to rap on hold indefinitely, instead deciding to create Lasers (Love Always Shines, Everytime Remember 2 Smile), originally We Are Lasers, originally The Great American Rap Album. This album has seen a lot of issues, from leaked tracks to Atlantic Records deciding not to release it for some reason (supposedly they’re close to releasing it, according to Atlantic Records tweets), making it almost unbearable for those Lupe fans among us. There is a petition for Atlantic Records to release it, however, and you can sign it here.
Hopefully Lasers gets released soon so I don’t have to resort to unofficial mixtapes(shudder) to get my Lupe fix.
First leaked track from the album, “Shining Down”
Officially released music video for “I’m Beamin”
