This is what I was trying to tell you f**gots from the beginning and now you're all "oh yeah the album was a let down blah blah" shut the f**k up

tried to be nice and warn ya'll but nah i was a "hater" Lupe told you himself from the start he had to sacrifice whatever and didn't even write the hooks etc. etc. so many red flags and still yall were acting like s**t was cool when the rest who can see through the lines (i guess, since i feel anyone should be able to see this) knew this s**t was gonna be pop label garbage with lupe doing 'cool' rhyming like "eminem on the recovery record" yeah that'll work

s**t is jokes to watch the shock like you couldn't see it coming...

Life isn't fair. These a**holes are making millions by doing music. You have to do a couple songs you don't like? Oh f**king well. He's not popular enough to control his music yet. You're an idiot if you don't expect major record labels to want to control parts of your album. It's a f**king business. An album full of nerd rap and world views doesn't sell. This is coming from a Lupe fan.

WOW. He can't make up his damn mind. I think once the leak happened, he checked out the blogs and read a few bad reviews and he started crying about it and started putting distance between him and the album. Sh*t hasn't even officially hit stores. Us people who've listened to it are the focus group, i think he got his feelings hurt.
wait it leaked?

But lupe said something similar in another magazine called loud and quiet a few weeks ago so its not the reviews

he sound like a lil emotional a.ss girl... f**kin drama queen
forreal man, who is he to get mad about his label forcing him to make music he doesn't care for. the fans could care less about creativity and originality so why should Lupe. Keep making the same bullshyt songs over and over again why don't ya.

but in all seriousness i can't believe so many people are against Lupe for actually WANTING to not be the carbon-copy pop artist. he can complain about his label all he wants, it's the labels fault for putting out all this garbage azz mainstream music in the first place. I wish more people would speak out about it personally.

Its called reading in-between the lines

LASERS is a huge disappointment

I honestly don't know why some of the bonus tracks aren't on the album, they're better than the majority of the songs on the album.

The problem is that why are they trying to do this to Lupe NOW?

As if Superstar didn't go plat or The Cool didn't go gold...he has a steady fanbase who supports him, he has Grammys, he's not some new cat.

So I feel Lupe to the fullest in regards to Atlantic NOW trying to control what he does.

Universal tried forcing Chamillionaire to do certain tracks too and look how that turned out. Cham didn't do it, now he's off the label and making s**t he wants to put out. Lupe should follow in Cham's footsteps.
And why would Lupe do that?

He's been touring making $$ and he at least has a 3rd album dropping whereas Cham has gone no where. All he has is his mixtapes which have SUCKED for a while now...Major Pain was a failure..then he went MIA for months..

Cham is no where near in a better situation than Lupe.

I agree with Lupe. I hate Lasers too. Can't wait for Friends of the People or Food & Liquor 2 though.

I was debating if I should buy or download the album. After reading this I'm gonna download it and add songs like "Shining Down", "Army Girl", "I'm beaming", and "Go To Sleep". Get close to how the was supposed to be. If its not Lupe at his best why should I purchase it.
