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.
I hear you but.. but after that... he goes the fu*k IN!! all the people saying this is wack are not HEARING this!

ayo, B. This n*gga dissed his whole situation, and whole hiphop/black mainstream culture.. ..

He just said everything us hiphop heads been saying, directly to these n*ggas....

its ON!

Restraining from my complaints on the cliche hook/beat... Lupe just sounded uninspired. Not at all excited for this tape

Oh sh*t..shots fired
What's up my brotha.

It's nothing person... if people don't like it--they don't like it. But before everyone starts calling it trash, etc (and not just this song... people do this with CDs, videos, movies, etc, etc). Listen... chill... then post. It's like people can't wait to post sh*t, or be the first person to respond to something. It's wild to me.

so noone.actually listened to what he was saying? sh*t was dope and what was wrong with the beat?

fu*k what n*ggas on here talking bout.
People keep saying this sh*t but there's silence when we ask about what he's saying that is so special.

Personally I'm not impressed by his lyrics and lackluster flow. I also want to hear him on an actual hip hop beat. The original song and the remix are dope but lupe sounds so uninspired.

It boggles my mind that people keep defending his subpar music.

I said what I said in relation to a idiot that said he's a sellout infact a few people said it in regard to this song......

How is he a sellout when HE STILL SAYING THE SAME sh*t HE BEEN SAYING? also I see "Average" thrown around alot, average in comparison to what? what mainstream rapper is rapping at lupe's level right now besides j.cole?

the whole point of the mixtape is a forgiveness to his core fanbase for making lasers

not CONTINUING the pop sh*t.

lasers is absolute trash, lupe would be denouncing it too still if the album did flop.

so continuing the sound the label "Forced" him to make by using it as your first single for a free mixtape...how is that logical

I don't think people get what the title of this song even means. Its called "LightWork" There's a double meaning behind it I believe. Doing this song to him is just easy and the fact that the song he is sampling is called "Lights"


But besides that, how is this not a hot topic yet tho

he aint sayin the same old sh*t...its the same old sh*t he said on lasers maybe.

but this? this is NOTHING like the cool, let alone F&L or ANY of the farenheit mixtapes. Its a damn shame, he is selling out, because his beats are made by fu*king cane instead of unkle and his lyrical content is watered down and so broadly acceptable that it doesn't matter what he's saying it can be taken as a metaphor for fu*king anything, girls, parents, boys, government, whoever listens is gonna hear what they wanna hear.
GTFO with that Words I never said is literal as fu*k, so is most of whats on Lasers and Yes he is Talking about the same subjects he's talked about on the cool and Food & liquor they are just not as lyrical but to fair from the very beginning he said he wanted to make a album that didn't go over n*ggas heads and still retain the positive message he was trying to get across and that was before he came out about his struggle with atlantic for creative control.......

you n*ggas just use terms like "Sell out" out of context because a artist is doing something you dont want them to do, no different than mainstream zombies use of the word "hater"

he would be selling out if he was betraying his faith, principles and overall message in his music he hasn't done that you n*ggas are griping about production he had virtually no control over that on lasers.......

now if you don't fu*k with this song lyrically I'll give you that I can respect your opinion but that doesn't constitute him selling out he even said on this joint "I will never mislead the youth" just like he been saying since he came out now show me where he's doing that and I'll entertain your sellout argument.......

What does that have to do with my comment?

We really satisfied with lupe putting no effort into his music?

If you're trying to treat the title as a double entendre, wouldn't you expect a k!ller song that he's jokingly referring to as being too easy to make?

Maybe I'm missing something

There's a reason this isn't going to be on his album. This is a free fu*king mixtape. I like this (and the OG song, "Lights") but I'm sure the next single will be less poppy. I'm fine with this though.
