the album is not that bad, you ♥♥♥♥♥s make it seem like its "before i self destruct" type bad. but in reality its just not what you were expecting, and not average lupe. meh

i also recommend adding in Im beaming, shining down, and go to sleep. itll make the album better just rearrange some track and voila'

maybe i'll add in his all city chess club remix to im beaming at the end as a make pretend bonus track.


It can't be that good if you have to add four tracks to make it decent.

go for it. i added Who Let the Dogs out by the Baha Men as a make pretend bonus track. it's not Lupe, but i was allowed to do it somehow.

You know an album sucks when you have to add bonus tracks.

all music that was made for the label is owned by the label

he cant release it for free

being signed is great but you're trapped by contracts as well


then how did he make songs and release them as Japanese Cartoon?! why can't lupe just make songs for Atlantic to get paid as a job, then make independent songs/mixtapes and release them online as an artist?

If you guys check the hypetrak page it says lupe wants to release another album this year so he can be done with his contract with Atlantic Records..but does that mean he's gonna try to do a good album (like his old/real self, which atlantic may not allow again) or you think he's just gonna try to hurry up and release a shitty album so he can get out and move to a label where he can do him?


thats what im saying. he should just release a shitty album with his label-made shit to get out of his contract. but at the same time, he should release a classic mixtape with his REAL shit so show off his art (presumably filled with songs the label would reject and not want anyways).

a job is a job. it's like, i love cooking. i love cooking so much that i got a job as a professional chef. but the douchebag manager at the restaurant said that i am only allowed to cook what's on the menu and i cant make up my own dishes. well douchebag manager, i signed a contract with you so i'll cook your lame ass dishes, but when i'm at home, i'm gonna cook some amazing shit and show all of my friends. what is that manager? i have to cook 100 plates of spaghetti then i can leave to find a job at another restaurant? wouldn't the smart thing to do here be just sit down and bang out 100 dishes at once and then bounce?

i kind of lost it there with the analogy but u get the gist. there must be some other hidden factor/rule holding lupe back b/c this seems like a pretty straightforward situation to me.

Add My World 2.0 and The DeAndre Way and you get Thriller 2.0

anyways... my favorite tracks are All Black Everything and Til I Get There. if you dont like those two tracks, then you probably didn't like Lupe's old stuff anyways.

You're seriously anxious to hear Chris Brown's album?

No wonder you didn't like Lasers.

I'm assuming you've never listened to F&L or The Cool.

Dammit Lupe, Dammit Atlantic Records. This album depressed me. I could barely listen to it.

All black everything is best song. But I could tell listening to this album that Lupe just was NOT into this album. I was not him.

He just wasn't having fun with is like he used to:

He'll be back.... smokeyface

Anyone else feel like this album is gonna sound super mainstream? Aka nothing like F&L and The Cool?


I wish I was proved wrong...

yall ♥♥♥♥♥s are funny, talking about adding baha men.

real talk it aint even the same since those tracks were intended for lasers at first,(lupe took them off for reasons unexplained, maybe he didnt want his better tracks linked with a weaker album of his? ) and yall gonna tell me none of you ever added songs to an album or rearranged the tracks? i added bittersweet and good night to Kanyes Graduation, was i wrong for doing that?
rather have those four tracks in the lasers album then floating around as singles in my itunes anyways.

fuck yall, fuck all of yall

I made up my mind about this album. I'm going to buy it regardless, as a Lupe fan. Wether the quality of the album sucks cause of Atlantic shouldn't matter. It's still Lupe.

but..



word, i knew that but i didnt buy the itunes version, and bittersweet has been floating around in one form or another since LR era, and it was finally released in the euro version, but im not in europe, and im not importing a copy either. so i did what i had to do.

also this mentions go to sleep as being intended for lasers back when they thought it was gonna be renamed to F&L2 and lupe released it himself.

regarding im beaming, this is an official video, from lupes own youtube acc, and would ya look at that, it says "lasers" in the very title.

right here you can see that Shining down, was supposed to be the first single from lasers.

problem?
