Found this over at Blameaspartame and I’m pretty sure I’m in love, which feels comparatively better than feeling like dying. I’ve been feeling like shit since Saturday and it seems that I might have a ragweed allergy. My hands and feel itch so bad they feel like they’re on fire and my throat is as dry as the desert. Pray for me.
You know what didn’t help me feel better? 50 Cent’s terrible remix to Cee-lo’s amazing “Fuck You.” He only spits for the first minute or so, and it’s painfully obvious listening to Curtis stumble over his words that he really wishes he was a better rapper. Jump below the cut and give it a listen, hope your ears don’t bleed.
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”
It was my little cousin’s birthday today so we went to the Please Touch Museum at the Avenue of the Republic. Didn’t get to see much of it…but I did get to see the basement, which has a gigantic recreation of Alice & Wonderland in it. It’s pretty trippy.
Oh, and there’s a model of the three bear’s house I took a picture of. Just because when we talk about bears it gives me a chance to reference Big Bear.
