real lupe fans lost, you think atlantic is going to give lupe control if this goes gold or plat? hell no. this will prob be the blueprint for his albums from now on. lupe x b.o.b x pop
I doubt they'd put F&L2 on hold.

Label bought a lot of those copies.. For the simple fact that they are the major culprit in Lasers being a pop/rap record..

They can't allow Lasers to fail, especially after pushing Lupe in the direction to make more poppish songs.. You can't have Lasers doing bad numbers after Cool/F&L sold so well.. They need to have some sort of grounds to f!ght on by saying "see, this is what the fans want Lupe, more poppish beats, numbers dont lie, ignore the internet blogs.."

I'd be shocked if this goes Gold in the first 3 months. they can only buy so many.
It makes no sense for them to do that. If he fails they still get their money and could cut him loose. If he sells well they get more loot. The name of the game is money. Atlantic buying the records loses money.

Lasers is a good album; this was one of the first albums I actually bought in years. It definitely and obviously has a more mainstream vibe, but its way too easy to dismiss the album because of this and not give it a few listens. With Lupe its always been about the lyrics for me, so even if the production this time around is more on the pop side I still enjoy the words ('All Black Everything', 'Beautiful Lasers'). He delivers solidly with this one and lets hope he has more control over F&L2, that way he can keep the soul of his music intact

And on the point of Atlantic buying albums, I thought it was more common for rappers to buy their own albums to legitimize themselves? Doesn't make much sense for a major to buy albums just to prove a point to one artist after they've already sunk so much money into making the damn album

I love the album

I told ya'll the Record Company knows what will sell

Mainstream Euro hip-hop with good lyrics is a winning formula.

Boom bap is dead. We want s**t to ride out to, and to have fun with.

Some of you are anti-mainstream, just to be anti-mainstream, only to end up being mainstream in your own way. Hypocrisy at its finest!

you are such a non-conformist with your yellow text. I for one is not afraid of being mainstream by using the default color when I type.

Glad the album is doling well, but I still aint gone say this is a great album. Food and Liquor shyts on this album as well as the cool. All black everything is the best song on the album but it would be like the the 5th or 6th best song on F&L or the Cool. I guess if you are into the pop music sound of 2010 you would love it, but a lot of us Lupe fans loved how he kept his first 2 albums original and didnt follow the trends of the music industry. We can only hope that F&L2 returns to what he does best. The bonus tracks are better than the tracks on Lasers. I'm guessing ABE, go to sleep, I'm beaming, Shining Down were tracks that were intended to be on the original Lasers LP.

right and in truth thats what set this all this s**t in motion all these so called hip hop fans downloaded F&L instead of buying it and that k!lled his leverage with the label

YOU HAVE TO BUY THE MUSIC

Fans of the cool think this album is too commercial, when superstar came out F&l fans thought that was too commercial, when kick push came out Fahrenheit fans that it was too commercial and that the advanced album was superior so they didn't buy it all this is is a bunch of excuses to be cheap and in the end the fans suffer for it

bulls**t the labels has been putting out flops left and right this is about absolute control which is why they tried to lock him in a 360 contract before the album was release and The cool was a major success across the board lupe knows how to make marketable music but all worked out cause this isn't really a bad product
