THAT was the Lupe that was going to originally be on Lasers. We all know this. Then the whole s**t happened with the label its obvious the label forced him to do that B.o.B s**t. They figured "s**t since B.o.B. did this and sold well maybe Lu can" but that isn't the case.

I swear BX has some of the dumbest people on the planet
pretty much, the fact Lasers wasn't out after Shinning Down says a lot about were Lu and the label's relationship was at. Then I'm beamin dropped and Lu had to pay for the video himself?

Lu might not be on Atlantic after Lasers, at least I would hope that he's not for the sake of the music.

wait so is it the "im beamin" "shining down" Lupe that was supposed to be Lasers or was it the "he said it was going to be a more mainstream album this time around" Lupe that was supposed to be on Lasers? You stans got me confused.

I like Lupe as an artist, still do, everyone has one bad album, its allowable. But dont make excuses for a grown man who made the wrong album. Just by listening to the cool you could tell he was heading down this path. And its ok Lupe, dont cry.

From before the whole public fallout with Atlantic, Lupe said this would be a different record. He's had moments of weakness on previous albums and this is just a whole bunch of weakness. Uncool off the Cool was fitting, but it wasn't a very good song at all. This album sounds like an extension of that. People need to realize that he said The Show Goes On and the John Legend song were done for the label, not the entire album. Some of these song titles have been floating around prior to the public falling out, so again, Atlantic isn't the only problem. Some of those songs that have been floating around for a while now weren't and aren't very good either and who's to blame for those?

To reiterate a point that no one seems to pay attention to, people leave record labels when they have a falling out. Lupe was not selling like Atlantic wanted him to and he didn't wanna do their kind of music. Had he actually had a conversation with the suits and had his manager around, they could've worked a deal out to leave the label. It would've cost him the rights to Lasers (which he doesn't care about anyways apparantly) and possibly the Cool, but F&L was mainly recorded independently and prior to Atlantic, as well as maybe some of his signing bonus, but he would be free. Saigon left, Little Brother left when they were at odds with the label, both of whom still had records that they owed the label. So what exactly is Lupe's motive to stay on the label? He doesn't want to do music independently anymore because F&F has pretty much fallen apart with the loss of people over the years. He doesn't want to spend money to create music anymore but still wants to get promo and sell like a major label artist. If he felt bad about his music, no one, not Atlantic, not anyone is stopping him from going into a studio, banging out some music with Soundtrakk and putting it out for free. Doesn't have to be mastered like an album, he did 4 mixtapes that people liked without having any major mastering on them.

The bottom line here that none of you seem to realize is that Lupe is in this situation because he handled the situation like a spoiled child and now is stuck. He released Lasers, great, but now he's locked in for another 2 albums while he constantly engages in negative talks about the label that owns his future. Those of you who are going to buy the CD are probably doing more harm than good. If he sells nothing, I'd be willing to bet that Atlantic would be ready to unload Lupe's contract since it's not worth the money, promo and controversy that led up to its release twice more. Lupe isn't willing to go into his pocket to make music anymore (see: interview when he said he should start charging for 23 minute long mixtapes, interview where he said it costs him up to 800 dollars to mix and master a freestyle etc.), he's publicly called out his fans on downloading after appearing on the mixtape/download circuit for years prior to his major label deal and ya'll really still support him wholeheartedly? I will not be buying Lasers which is unfortunate because I still have a shrink-wrapped copy of both The Cool and F&L in my CD collection from their days of release.

Hard to rap over techno tracks, Lupe spittin the truth on here but all the songs sound the same and they don't include the depth that we are accustomed to hear on a lupe album. I had to listen to the Cool and Food and Liquor a billion times to catch all the metaphors, double meanings, and hidden messages. His word play was crazy. I remember having conversations with dudes trying to break down verses.

I listened to this album and nothing went over my head. His subject matter is still better than most artists but it is simplified. He dumbed it down. Also this album lost the concept feel. Food and liquor and the cool had themes.

The state radio song is so ironic. Dude talking about how we forced to hear the same songs and go with trends of the music industry on a track like that. Even ABE seems simplified, although I love the song and its probbably the deepest track on the album. I think atlantic pressured him to make songs that everyone could comprehend.

I blame Atlantic and Lupe. Hopefully he can bounce back like Nas did after dropping that oochy wally and shorty owe me for ice, he took a lot of heat and then he dropped stillmatic

goes and listens to enemy of the state

i think this is just markerting by lupe to get another album or follow up album like kesha did with animal cannibal or gagas done with the fame monsters

lupes going to go down the pop route on lasers
make a losers album with his other tracks - probably make the cover black and have the lights on in it
then sell it a lasers/losers double album

So what is stopping me to believe this won't happen to F&L:The Great American Dream????

And why do most of these songs sound like it was made for Akon to sing on the hook and the Black Eyed Peas to guest star? Not feeling this

I don't think you really understand the in's and out's of working for a major music business. I think many of you think things are cut and dry--when in reality, it's not that easy. In addition, I think for people who aren't Lupe fans, or people who were disappointed in this CD, it makes your "argument", much more myopic.

Edit: Also, some of your view points consist of things you don't know concretely (i.e, Lupe had this contract release if he did such and such, or Lupe could have left... etc, etc. You weren't there, how would you know 100%? Easy answer--you don't). If you can show me Lupe interviews or interviews with Atlantic record execs, I'd be more apt to believe your point. And even then, all sides of a story are skewed.

The f**k are you talking about. You really think Lupe would choose those beats and hooks? Have you listened to F&L and The Cool? You really think Lupe would put auto tune on his songs? Noones making excuses i'm just trying to point out FACTS for dumb f**ks like yourself. The lyrics are still there on Lasers (I've had the album on repeat) but the beats aren't Lupe. Anyone who actually LISTENS to Lupe can tell that.

Goddamn Boxden is dumb lately.
So Atlantic gave him a full CD with completed beats, finished hooks, and said please insert verses or your album is never coming out and you will rot in eternal MC hell is what youre saying?

They are not facts but opinions, your opinions. The Lupe Stanatics have every excuse under the sun as to why Lupe just dropped Nastradamus Pt.2, other than dude f**ked up. Its ok, he's entitled to have a bad album just stop whining and blaming s**t on everyone else, and put out some better quality music to make up for it.

The album is full of singles, so iTunes wise itíll do some #ís.
