Lupe Fiasco - Lasers: A Review

Lupe Fiasco is one of the most acclaimed and influential rappers of his generation, known for his lyrical prowess, social commentary, and eclectic musical style. His third studio album, Lasers, was released on March 7, 2011 by Atlantic Records, after a long and tumultuous process that involved creative differences, label disputes, and fan protests.

Lasers is an acronym for Love Always Shines Everytime Remember 2 Smile, which reflects the album's theme of positivity and empowerment in the face of adversity. The album features guest appearances from singers such as John Legend, Trey Songz, Skylar Grey, and Matt Mahaffey, as well as rappers such as Sway and MDMA. The production is handled by various producers, including The Audibles, The Neptunes, Needlz, Alex da Kid, Syience, and Soundtrakk.


The album received mixed reviews from critics, who praised Fiasco's lyricism and message, but criticized the pop-oriented sound and lack of cohesion. Some fans also expressed disappointment with the album's direction, feeling that it was a departure from Fiasco's previous work. However, the album was a commercial success, debuting at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart with first-week sales of over 200,000 copies. It also spawned four singles: "The Show Goes On", "Words I Never Said", "Out of My Head", and "I Don't Wanna Care Right Now".

Lasers is a controversial and divisive album in Fiasco's discography, but it also showcases his artistic vision and versatility. It is an album that challenges the listener to think critically and to find hope in the darkest times. As Fiasco himself said: "Lasers is not trying to be anything but what it is: a record full of love."
