EDITORS’ NOTES

Back in the mid-'00s, Lupe Fiasco struck a nerve with his fashion-forward style, matched with cheeky verses and ear-tickling, loop-driven productions, which endeared him to fans and critics alike. Lasers (an acronym for Love Always Shines Everytime Remember 2 Smile) marks his 2011 return. Straight off the bat, it's clear that Lupe has no intentions keeping his original, underground-centric fan base, as he employs a lot more singing, radio-ready choruses, and a heavy, electro-pop influence on his tracks. The best joints here are the string-laced, Afro-centric anthem "All Black Everything," ridiculously catchy "Coming Up" featuring MDMA, and "Words I Never Said" with Skylar Grey. Other guests include John Legend, Trey Songz, and Matt Mahaffey.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

1st!!!

Gunna keep it short. Lupe is a rapper with a purpose. He tells a story its not about how much money he has or how many girls he gets at the club and thats why he is such a great rapper. He will continue to stay on my playlists for awhile. Yes for Lupe and No for lil wayne

Kigaba ,

Finally

Real hip hop. Enough said.

Lupe

I love you and all but this isnt Lupe. Ive got over 100 Lu songs but this isnt why I loved Lu. This is Atlantics Album and Atlantics sound. The whole album sounds manufactured repetitive and mainstream. Even with his lyrics it still feels like a sell out. Lupe can do much better and I look forward to Food & Liquor 2: TGARA which will hopefully have the real Lupe. Lasers dissapointed tremendously in comparison to FL and The Cool.

All the 5 stars are clearly blinded by Lupe fanboyism. This is not the real Lupe this is Atlantic forcing Lupe to make mediocre repetitive music. You can do so much better Lupe.
