Lasers

Lupe Fiasco endured a long process to get this album to be released. It appeared Atlantic records had shelved it but then decided to give him a release date after he started talking about his issues and protests were planned.

It seems fans didn’t care about the wait with Lupe Fiasco selling 204k records in his first week, an extremely high number for a rapper these days. Did anyone see this coming? How would you rate the album? Lupe Fiasco’s previous debuts were 143k for, “The Cool,” & 81k for, “Food & Liquor.”

Thank You #Lasers #1. every year we do better, steady on the rise, the tears for lost ones weigh heavy on the eyes, dita sunny’s, gold prezzy, twin turbo chevy fo’ a ride of course, from the backseats of phantoms i thought of leaving thru suicide doors. love got me thru it, best fans ever made the whole world care, had 51st & 6th looking like Tahrir Square! apologize for dumbing it, but look what has become of it, “All Black Everything” some old white southern woman humming it, Took Gaza Strip’s Politics and put them number one and shit, took the myth that concious dont equal commercial and mothafuckin pummeled it! weapons for the weak, lessons for the meek, the too proud to beg, and the too poor to speak and there it will remain, for atleast another week, right at number 1, hahaha yeah nigguh, stay strong Japan, Nate Dogg REST IN PEACE!!! – Lupe Fiasco
