Lupe Fiasco’s Lasers Album Review

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 Lupe’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. “Words I Never Said” featuring Skylar Green produced by the UK’s Alex Da Kid goes in with

“if u turn on the TV all u see is bunch of what the f*cks/dude is dating so & so blabberin’ about such & such/and dat ain’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 gettin’ bombed Obama didn’t say shyt/ that’s why I didn’t vote for ‘em next one either/I’m apart of the problem the problem is I’m peaceful/ and I believe in the people”

Yep, he went in.

Fiasco doesn’t just wake a little bit of your political side but he does take you to where I think everybody has been before with “I Don’t Wanna Care Right Now” featuring MDMA is about that rebellious state of mind in doin’ you and not givin’ 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 “Baltimore Club” sound a nice touch produced by Audibles. LF didn’t forget about the ladies with a track produced by Miykal Snoddy reminiscing of Barry White’s “It’s Ecstasy When You Lay Down Next To Me “ also sampled on Mary J. Blige’s classic cd “My Life” blazer “You Bring Me Joy “ joint called “Out Of My Head” 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 & it’s no mistake who’s leading the hook.

“All Black Everything” produced by Wizzo Buchanan is a savvy twist on how life would be in America or worldwide for that reason without racism or slavery.

“First 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.”

I call it the big what if in Hip Hop song on how life could’ve been like if slavery or racism never happened. LF takes a humorous different take on what could’ve happened with

“Fred 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!”

A couple of my other favs are “Never Forget” featuring John Legend produced by Wonda & co-produced by Arden Altino, “I’m Beaming” produced by The Neptunes, “Break The Chain” featuring Eric Turner & Sway produced by iSHi, “Coming Up” featuring MDMA produced by The Future and “Shining Down” featuring old faithful Matthew Santos produced by Soundtrakk. Overall I think the album’s pretty dope and is needed for 2011 music collectors. So creep it, peep it. “Phew! Phew!”…..Hey that was my “Lasers” sound effect….I tried. *shrugz* lol
