“I Don’t Wanna Care Right Now” – Review Of Lupe Fiasco’s Lasers

By | 30 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/03/lupe-fiasco-responds-to-his-albums-bad-reviews"> Suffering three years of delays at the corporate hands of Atlantic Records, and facing the threat of an expiration-less shelf life, Lupe Fiasco decides to compromise on his third studio album, Lasers and make those few bastardy radio-pop singles in order to achieve the greater goal of getting the album out to the public ear. What started off as a request for a couple harmless, attention-grabbing tracks mutated into an all-out combat between the two parties, as <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/01/download-lupe-fiasco-im-beaming">song</a> after <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/08/download-lupe-fiasco-go-to-sleep">song</a> was scrapped from the tracklist.

Lupe Fiasco – “The Show Goes On”

By | 24 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/10/download-lupe-fiasco-common-jennifer-hudson-no-i-d-we-can-do-it-now"> Media swore Lupe's machine was out of control as evidenced by a temporarily shelved album, well publicized label politics, blog "bans" and a protest tagged to his name. Then Mr. Fiasco returned things to normalcy with a few key features, a release date and a lead single in "The Show Goes On." The song's title and underdog theme may sound like a response to much of the flack he's received. But I'll chalk it up as a coincidence since he makes little mention of his detractors. The high point of this track rests on Lupe's lyrics. His uplifting rhymes laced with a few intricate patterns are a breath of fresh air for a mainstream record. The <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CTAud5O7Qqk&ob=av2e">Modest Mouse sample</a> gives the beat a nice touch.
