Lupe Fiasco. March 8th. L.A.S.E.R.S!

Fans reaction: too commercial, but Lupe is still ok; the mass reaction: totally awesome…the result: many many albums sold and millions of youtube views.

My opinion:  Ironically fiasco is the most appropriate word. Let us remember the times when Atlantic Records was postponing the album’s release, the times when fans were protesting and signing petitions. We are talking about the most anticipated album of the year 2011, coming from a conscious rapper like Lupe, so I don’t understand what is with the auto-tuned choruses and uninspired collaborations, the radio sound (electro-pop shit)???. I really appreciate Lupe, for what he does, for his intelligent lyrics, for the fact that he is an activist, but L.A.S.E.R.S is an epic fail.

I’ve posted a video with Lupe Fiasco live along Erykah Badu at BET Awards. I decided to post this particular video rather than the original with Skylar Grey singing the chorus. I think that this live bit proved that he is capable of much more than what he did on L.A.S.E.R.S.
