Lupe Fiasco Wants To Destroy All Physical Copies Of Lasers With New Campaign


People really dislike Lasers that much? I actually thought it was a pretty good album. It’s held up better than some of the stuff on The Cool, which was always my favorite Lupe album. I may have to revisit my official Lupe album rankings on the 10 year anniversary of Food & Liquor. But I digress.

I guess Lu’s fans still have beef with the album Atlantic Records *allegedly* botched back in 2011. Looking back, I guess the gap between The Cool and Lasers was pretty ridiculous (four years),  but I’m fairly certain I’m gonna hold on to my hard copy. It’s a rap souvenir at this point. Anyway, Lupe took to Facebook earlier to announce the #LaserHaters campaign. Sounds a bit harsh, no?  We just can’t escape this album, can we?

My 3rd musically related thing I want to accomplish this year is not to make another album but to do something waaaay stupider…I want to unmake an album. I watched the ATARI E.T. documentary and got inspired. So here’s my idea. For all you people who really hated my 3rd album LASERS for whatever reason in the universe I want you to send it back to me so I can destroy it with an actual Laser. You not getting any money back or an apology or anything like that. The fact still remains that a lot of people really loved LASERS (Me Included) despite the popular myth that it’s one of the worst rap albums ever but sometimes the myth can be stronger than the truth. So yeah….if you have a physical copy of LASERS that you absolutely hate and wish for it to be rendered non-existent then you can send it back to me and I’ll have it destroyed with an actual giant laser and send it into next world in spectacular grand fashion!

If your down hit me up in the comments or on Twitter with the hashtag #TheReturnOfLasers and if we get enough #LaserHaters willing to have their physical copy destroyed then will do it on New Year’s Day 2016!!! To you #LaserLovers out there with physical copies just sit back and enjoy the craziness that’s about to happen lol… This is a #WellBoggleMeGiblets© production

New Project: Lupe Fiasco – Pharaoh Height



Up and out of the blue, Lupe Fiasco has dropped a brand new six song EP. A very mysterious collection of tracks titled Pharaoh Height, rumored to be the third installment of his Fahrenheit 1/15 mixtape series — which helped put Lu on the map back in the mid aughts.

Not much is known about the project, its features or its production; but it’s sounding amazing a few songs in. The track list is even more intriguing, giving us a message (and a rhyme!) instead of simply song titles. Fans of Fahrenheit hold the series in an esteemed light, so let’s hope Pharaoh Height keeps the legacy alive. I believe it will. Larger even.

Prepare to be dazzled below.
