Lupe Fiasco Reacts to Lasers Leak

A week before it’s release Lupe Fiasco’s upcoming album Lasers leaked online and the Chicago MC took to Twitter to address his fans on their reactions to the music.

“I never thought lasers would inspire so much negativity,” he wrote on his account this afternoon (March 1). “Reading the comments and reactions is crushing.”

“To all the Lupe fans who protested and petitioned you did a GREAT thing,” he added, speaking on his fans letters and actual protest that helped make his label actualy out out the disc. “Don’t let people belittle what u achieved. You forced a massive corporation to bow to the whim of the people. That’s a glorious thing. Love always shines everytime remember 2 smile has always been a ‘note2self; the product of trying to figure a reason to keep going.”

Lasers, which features cameos from Trey Songz, John Legend, Skylar Grey and MDMA,  will hit stores on March 8.—Michael Naclerio

  • Eagle

    Its kind of sad that so many (commenting) people are hung up on minor spelling errors that don’t even affect any pertinent information.

    Why don’t u comment on the TOPIC at hand: LUPE disappointing his fans.

    I haven’t heard many of the tracks, but i had a feeling something like this may have happened. smh

      Honestly, its Lupe’s best album production value with, lyrically I find it to be his worst simply because he just hands out the meaning in his lyrics on the album, the subtlety is gone. At the same time though, he’s doing more social commentary than his other albums, which is to be expected I suppose. I cant take him seriously after his mentions that he ‘doesnt trust America since Zeitgeist’ and he alludes to this in that song “Words I Never Said”, you cant be both an intelligent social commentator and a conspiracy theorist, they’re pretty much polar opposites.

    Bleeding hearts bleed dry. Suck it up Lupe.

  • HU

    The album is terrible and Lupe knows it. Why he is all of a sudden crushed I don’t know. He said only 4 of his original songs made the album. The rest is corporate trash. It sounds like a throwaway B.O.B. album, basically all of the songs that weren’t good enough for B.O.B.

  • Evann

    Its so many misspelled word in this article because they were quoting what Lupe tweeted, word for word….so Lupe misspelled all those things, not the magazine. Note the quotations guys.
