    Lupe Fiasco gives some insight on his upcoming album in this interview with Fuse TV.

    In the video he says that the first single is coming May 22nd. I am officially excited. Check the video out below!

    I hope it's good. Lasers was garbage.

    I have some doubts on weather or not the album will live up to its name based on Lasers. I love Lupe though so I'll give him a shot.

    Lasers was garbage for a reason. Lupe has gone out saying that this wasn't the album he wanted to put out.

    I can't help but get a little worried because this is coming after the disappointing LASERS and the somewhat "meh" mixtape FOTP. But from what we've heard so far it sounds like he's going back to his old style. Soundtrakk is doing productions again and there's also another Matthew Santos collaboration. All these are good signs.

    I seriously can't wait. :D I've always made Lupe my number one rapper, and he hasn't disappointed me yet.

    Looking back, Lasers, aside from "Never Forget You", "Coming Up", "I Don't Wanna Care Right Now" (guilty pleasure) and "Beautiful Lasers", was ok at best. Still better than most mainstream rap, but not in Lupe terms, and I knew he knew that himself. For anyone doubting him after Lasers, remember that Lupe has stated he loved it, but he also really hated the process involved in making it. I really hope Atlantic doesn't delay this AGAIN with "Oh, Lu, yeah, about Food & Liquor 2..."

    Hopefully this is good. Lasers had a few good moments but had zero replay value.

    Lu really hyped up "All Black Everything" from LASERS but that ended up being decent, nothing mindblowing. So yeah, I'm not holding my breath on this one.

    Lasers was bad because Atlantic forced him to make that album. almost all rappers who are signed to Atlantic will end up making hip-pop so to speak

    Lasers at least had its moments. But Friend of the People was complete trash I didn't like one song.

    I wouldn't rule it out, but I wouldn't count on it, either. He's been busy with Living Things, so unless he took a day off to collaborate with Lupe, I doubt he's going to appear on the album in any capacity, except maybe as a producer of a track, like he was on Food & Liquor ("The Instrumental").

    FOTP had great lyrics but the production sucked

    FOTP, EOTS and Lasers were all pretty bad. My expectations are low for now, at best it might have good production.
