Lupe Fiasco – Lasers

Lupe Fiasco is a conscious rapper who is unfortunately running out of consciousness in his latest release Lasers. Instead of focusing on his lyrical skills, his strongest assets, Lupe lets r & b hooks, Auto-Tune and dance beats take over his rhymes. Lupe is at his best when he speaks his mind like on the brilliant “Words I Never Said,” in which he criticizes: “Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist / Gaza strip was getting bombed, Obama didn’t say shit.” Too bad, Lupe spends too much time trying to speak to the radio and the clubs.
