Akira is a classic. People who've been a part of hip hop longer than a few years should know it well.

It's well known worldwide and Lupe's fan base is larger than America so it makes sense to draw on the whole Akira thing.

Tetsuo was destroyed by his own new found power so maybe its a commentary on the young rappers these days destroying themselves and the youth with their new found power. In light of all this cheif Keef drama and Lupe's strong feelings about the perishing youth it makes sense. Who knows, I'm sure he will probably explain the title at some point.

But I think its good that he chose a title that is out of the ordinary and something for real hip hop heads to connect to. He's good at drawing off of people's deep cultural views and using that to prove his point as he did with the double burger with cheese song. The dumb will say yea I remember that part in that movie lol, The wise will say yea I remember being raised off that movie and its a shame how art imitates life and how strong images are when used to brain washing a nation. They will have a deeper understanding of the song. He has a way of reaching both sides of the people. The album title food and liquor has the same effect. The man is very creative and is not your normal carbon copy artist. Because of that he will always have fans and real heads will respect him and support his voice.

don't understate why the hate is strong just cuz he just gave us an ambiguous title. Who cares what the title is??? Lupe always creative with his sh*t. as a hip hop head i gotta appreciate that. can't wait to see what he comes up with and curious to see where he takes the new LP.

Tetsuo as in the main villain from Akira? Yall never heard of that sh*t?


but forreal if this is gonna be another hour and a half of political commentary I'll pass. Thanks but no thanks lupe, I liked it better when you would tell me amazingly detailed stories instead of how I need to think and live my life.

All black everything?
Lamborghini Angels?
Unforgettable youth?

all those songs had dope concepts and were amazingly detailed

I respect n*ggas opinion but its almost yall just listened to 2 or 3 tracks on Lasers and F&L2 and ran with what yall didn't like the album was more social commentary than political rap he still doing ans saying the same sh*t he been doing and saying smh

The lupe hate is crazy and whats fu*ked up is noone can say the music is wack tho....

Laser is commercial n*ggas complain
F&L 2 is heavy is content n*ggas complain

If I was Lupe I'd hate my fan fareal.....

no. I rocked with lupe from DAY ONE. When dude was still rapping about guns and sh*t.

Lasers fu*kING SUCKED over produced, self righteous garbage.
yes there were a few decent tracks on it, lupe isn't THAT bad to have an entire album without a decent track

what I'm saying is that he dropped two classics in a row, and then abandoned the entire story of the cool. and started releasing preachy sh*t. and sh*t is what it is. if you like lasers you must get down on mad radio hits because that sh*t is POP. You listed three songs out of like thirty.

I listened to all of Lasers, 3 times, I actually purchased the sh*t. 4th time through I got "I don't wanna care right now" and threw that sh*t out. never played it again. You named off three good songs and I don't disagree they are good songs, conceptual and clever...but he used to have at least ten of those. Do a legitimate side by side comparison of Lasers/F&LII to F&L/The Cool the last two don't even come close to touching his first two releases

enemy of the state was his last victory. Lasers failed miserably (because it was such a commercial success ironically enough). Food and Liquor two was NOT food and liquor two it might have well been called "More lasers" It's sad that he used to be a genuine artist and now is a record labels whipping boy.
LOL But Go-Go Gadget Flow from the coolest actually reminds me of "I dont wanna care right now" and he was just having fun.
