Well, first of all I really liked Ellie Goulding' debut album and I also like Dubstep, so this beat for Lupe sounds sick, in my opinion. I enjoyed Lasers, as well, just as much as The Cool or F&L.

Flip the script on chicks who think
They sh*t smells like perfume shops
Help them girls find beauty
Without a magazine or movie

Maybe it's not groundbreaking but he's still a positive individual and stands up for what he believes in. Lupe isn't a God among men compared to other rappers but he is extremely talented and is a smart individual. He's contradicted himself a few times but that's something we've all had happen before except that we aren't doing interviews and having conversations video taped.

My point is that anybody who has been a true Lupe fan, shouldn't feel like he's sold out just because his beats have changed a bit. Also, that this song is dope but if it's not for you, it's not for you.

I think Jay said it best, "You want my old stuff, go buy my old albums." I agree that Food and Liquor sound-wise was much better, but artists progress> WTF would be thep oint to drop 5 albums in a row that sound exactly like F&L. If you want F&L go listen to it, but dont expect every song he drops from now on to sound like Kick, Push, American Terrorist, or I Gotcha. If you dont like it, you're entitled to dislike it, but dont hate on him for being creative and not making the same music over and over again e.g. Gucci, Waka, Lil' Wayne, Drake, etc.

and please someone enlighten me to how this is good lyrically....Lupe the most OVERRATED artist I have ever heard he is not even that good a rapper, he is solid he nice but not that great and def not GREAT......PLEASE POINT OUT SOME BARS THAT ARE SUPPOSEDLY "LYRICAL" or witty PLEASEeeeee
I don't know if Lupe is overrated, he just has some die hard fans and he raised the bar of the rap game with his first too rap albums lyrically and intellectually in a way that no other rapper was leaves us a bit dissapointed that he decided to simplify his music. I remember when I first heard dumb it down and was like this is what the game needed, then I heard Lasers and I was like really Lu.

It aint that we want him to make the same songs as the cool and f&l, it just we want the quality of his delivery to be just as dope. Its very obvious to his fans that he has simplified his message and delivery to the point to where he seems corny. I like All Black Everything, but imagine if he would of had that song concept on the cool, how dope that track would of been. Fans that miss the old Lupe are kinda upset that we are not experiencing the genius of his word play anymore. It is kinda like watching the colts with Peyton Manning

If you need people to show you what was lyrical, then you need to listen to the song over. It's ok though because Lupe has a notorious history for going too far over the average listeners head, so you keep thinking these were "simple a.ss rhymes". I'll point out "Failure" as a perfect example & leave it at that.

Lupe has learned from the label situation he went thru. He has a pretty good idea of what the label wants from him. He knows this is the type of music he needs to release if he wants the label to support his projects.

And the song is pretty good. Ya dudes needs to get out more and travel. This type of beat is wats being played all over the clubs right now.

You could edit it in Itunes if it's that much of a problem, but it wouldn't make any sense seeing how it's a sample from the song she's featured in but ok.

And goddamn every-time I listen to this it gets better & better.

BX is filled with haters. There's about 15-20 people who listen to the music, and be unbiased.

The song is 4 minutes. Prolly took 30 seconds to download. The hating comment was at 12:20. Some of y'all can't wait to start hating.
