Lupe’s controversial single now has a politically-driven music video attached to it. Check out the aggressive video above. Fight sequence included.
If you haven’t grabbed a copy of Lasers, do so now.
After warring with his record label Atlantic Records, rapper Lupe Fiasco has finally managed to release his third studio album LASERS. The 12-track album features singles Words I Never Said and The Show Goes On. iTunes is selling the record for $10.99 and a $13.99 deluxe version which includes “I’m Beamin’”, the Matthew Santos assisted “Shining Down”, and two music videos (“I’m Beamin’” & “The Show Goes On“). John Legend, Trey Songz, and Skylar Grey are among the featured artists.
The second single off Lupe Fiasco’s much anticipated album Lasers is here. Lupe calls the politically-charged track “a big, controversial record.” Skylar Grey’s vocal talents are delegated to the chorus which goes like this: “It’s so loud inside my head with words that I should have said/ As I drown in my regrets, I can’t take back the words I never said.” There’s some powerful messages and themes living inside this track, and it don’t hurt that the Alex Da Kid-produced beat is wicked. Listen above, get ready for Lasers coming March 5.
Five months after Lupe Fiasco announced his new album was complete, Atlantic Records has finally confirmed a release date for the rapper’s oft-delayed third studio album Lasers: March 8, 2011. ”The Show Goes On” is the lead single off the record, and the music video for it is embedded above. iTunes download right here. No word whether or not previously released tracks “Shining Down” and “I’m Beamin” will be included on Lasers.
Kanye West is working so very hard on finalizing his upcoming album My Beautiful Twisted Dark Fantasty–no wonder why last week’s G.O.O.D. Friday track landed on the ‘Net during the wee hours of Saturday morning. When he officially tweeted about the track’s release he called it “Don’t Look Down (The Phoenix Story)”, so make a choice when giving it a name in your music library. You know the drill by now: preview and download below! Note: The album art does contain nudity; hop after the break for the uncensored image.
A G.O.O.D. Friday song without Kanye West on the track? Not so fast, pard’ner. Child Rebel Soldier, a rap group formed in 2007, consists of Pharrell Williams (of N.E.R.D.), Lupe Fiasco, and Mr. West. Up to this point CRS has collaborated on two other songs: “Us Placers” (off the Can’t Tell Me Nothing mixtape) and “Everybody Nose (Remix)” (off N.E.R.D.’s album Seeing Sounds). And now you know. Preview and download the latest CRS cut below.

One mixtape (The First Flight, 2009), two freestyles (“Made You Look“, “Over“), and a prelude music video later, Diggy Simmons is readying his next mixtape Airborne by dropping the first track off it. It’s called “Oh Yeah!” and features verses from Lupe Fiasco and Pharrell Williams. I’ve said it from the start–this kid is bringing a fresh sound to the rap community and his style of rap at such a young age (he’s only 15) is really impressive. Enjoy this track as we anticipate the sequel to his first mixtape due out sometime this year.
It’s official: Lupe Fiasco’s highly anticipated third studio album LASERS is complete. Lupe shared the news with his fans first via his Twitter account:
Lasers is out of my hands guys and gals…it’s done and that’s all I can tell you…when they drop it…they drop it…so drop it…
Now it’s up to Atlantic Records to announce a release date and it’s golden. According to most sources, there’s no reason why it should not release sometime in this year. While you’re waiting, go give the first two singles off the album a listen here: “I’m Beamin’” & “Shining Down“.
Here’s the music video for the “Wondamix” verison of Janelle Monáe’s “Tightrope”. The original version features Big Boi; this one’s got B.o.B and Lupe Fiasco. The remix is available as an iTunes download, as is Monáe’s new studio album The ArchAndroid (Suites II and III). She’s got this indie-pop/afro-punk/soulful swagga’ to her voice and style, and I like it. And B.o.B and Lupe make for nice additions to the track.
Lupe’s baaaack. After dropping two singles off his upcoming album Lasers rapper Lupe Fiasco made a music video for one of ‘em. And it’s a really fun video, so check it out. Lasers is expected to release sometime this year, but in the meantime take a listen to “I’m Beamin” and the other single “Shining Down“ (featuring Matthew Santos).
LASERS is expected to release sometime this year. Need your Lupe fix? Download his latest mixtape.

Lupe Fiasco is back. Though previous album ventures like LupE.N.D., The Great American Rap Album, and LASERS have yet to come to fruition, rapper Lupe Fiasco has no intention leaving his followers empty handed. “Enemy of the State” is a rockin’ mixtape and proves that he’s still got it. Interestingly, the original mixtape was released in cassette-style format (continuous start to finish). If you want that verison, click here. A traditional separated track-by-track version dropped later; click here for this version. Tracklist after the break.
