Lasers the long awaited and recurring bumps in the road for a release date along with publicly acknowledge label issues; the album finally gets the light of day. I think the album takes on and continues with Lupeâ€™s persona as when he first officially stepped into the game touching on some of the state of the world today along with opening some of his personal thoughts. â€œWords I Never Saidâ€ featuring Skylar Green produced by the UKâ€™s Alex Da Kid goes in with
â€œif u turn on the TV all u see is bunch of what the f*cks/dude is dating so & so blabberinâ€™ about such & such/and dat ainâ€™t Jersey Shore homie datz the news & these the same people that supposedly telling us the truth/Limbaugh is a racist Glen Beck is a racist /Ghaza Strip was gettinâ€™ bombed Obama didnâ€™t say shyt/ thatâ€™s why I didnâ€™t vote for â€˜em next one either/Iâ€™m apart of the problem the problem is Iâ€™m peaceful/ and I believe in the peopleâ€
Yep, he went in.
Fiasco doesnâ€™t just wake a little bit of your political side but he does take you to where I think everybody has been before with â€œI Donâ€™t Wanna Care Right Nowâ€ featuring MDMA is about that rebellious state of mind in doinâ€™ you and not givinâ€™ a shyt about what anybody thinks. At end of the track is little change in which it transforms into the latest sound in the industry that â€œBaltimore Clubâ€ sound a nice touch produced by Audibles. LF didnâ€™t forget about the ladies with a track produced by Miykal Snoddy reminiscing of Barry Whiteâ€™s â€œItâ€™s Ecstasy When You Lay Down Next To Me â€œ also sampled on Mary J. Bligeâ€™s classic cd â€œMy Lifeâ€ blazer â€œYou Bring Me Joy â€œ joint called â€œOut Of My Headâ€ featuring Trey Songz . Fiasco comes across this fine specimen of a woman that has made a lasting impression from first visual. What I like about Trey on the hook is he sounds like Songz but not his usual vocals until he sings the bridge & itâ€™s no mistake whoâ€™s leading the hook.
â€œAll Black Everythingâ€ produced by Wizzo Buchanan is a savvy twist on how life would be in America or worldwide for that reason without racism or slavery.
â€œFirst 400 years, see we actually enjoyed it/Constitution written by the W.E.B. Du Bois
Were no reconstructions, Civil War got avoided/Little black Sarah grows up to be a lawyer/Extra extra on the news stands Black woman voted head of Ku Klux Klan/Malcolm Little dies as a old man/Martin Luther King read the eulogy for him/Followed by Bill O’Reilly who read from the Quran/President Bush sends condolences from Iran/Where FOX News reports live/That ahmedinijad wins Mandela peace prize.â€
I call it the big what if in Hip Hop song on how life couldâ€™ve been like if slavery or racism never happened. LF takes a humorous different take on what could’ve happened with
â€œFred Astaire was the first to do a backspin/The Rat Pack was cool group of black men/That inspired five white guys called The Jacksons/Eminem fitted in but then again he inspired a black rapper trying to mimic him/And that’s what really rose up out of Michigan, the sign of white rapper by the name of 50 Cent, ha!â€
A couple of my other favs are â€œNever Forgetâ€ featuring John Legend produced by Wonda & co-produced by Arden Altino, â€œIâ€™m Beamingâ€ produced by The Neptunes, â€œBreak The Chainâ€ featuring Eric Turner & Sway produced by iSHi, â€œComing Upâ€ featuring MDMA produced by The Future and â€œShining Downâ€ featuring old faithful Matthew Santos produced by Soundtrakk. Overall I think the albumâ€™s pretty dope and is needed for 2011 music collectors. So creep it, peep it. â€œPhew! Phew!â€â€¦..Hey that was my â€œLasersâ€ sound effectâ€¦.I tried. *shrugz* lol
