    I find your lack of faith disturbing.

    Though it's not exactly what I was hoping for, I still think its a good album that's better than most, if not all mainstream hip-hop releases that have come out in the last couple of months. The expectations were set very high on this record due to how great his first two were, as well as the several delays in releasing the album, which built anticipation even higher. I think anyone who has to deal with label conflicts for two years will become exhausted. Long story short, I think he made the best of a bad situation, delivering strong lyrics over more commercial beats (hate the fact that Soundtrakk was absent from this album). The label got what it wanted: #1 single and #1 on the Billboard charts. Hoping this means they'll just give him full creative control on the next album, but I'm not counting on it.

    ^That song is pretty dope,i love Bob.

    I finally got lasers, and i have to say im preyty sayisfied, the beats are insane, and though it may not be 100% lupe, it shows is versatility to jump out of his zone and do more poppish songs. I really liked that lasers kind of had a synth heavy,relaxed theme.

    I dig this new leak. Good for an unfinished song. Hope more shelved LASERS songs get leaked.

    Lupe should just release a mixtape called "The Laser Sessions" with all the leftover songs from the album. Maybe it can give us an insight into what Lasers was originally going to be. Similar to what Wayne did with the Carter III.

    Can Lupe just release his songs as Japanese Cartoon ? I'm pretty sure he has total control over that. Just add some very slight punk influences to the music and viola!

    I've been putting the leaked songs I downloaded together into an album I named, L.A.S.E.R.B.E.A.M.S. It seemed fitting.

    That's what I've been saying! But knowing Lupe and his stand on giving out free music, I don't see that happening. Maybe that not_afraid2leak guy will leak more (he's the one who leaked Stereo Sun).

    I actually like Bobby's version better, it seems like Lupe is just kind of down throughout this whole song. His lyrics are good, but its kind of like "I'll Never Forget You", to me it just sounds like he's not feelin it.

    I agree. It's obvious he didn't dig the beat. No wonder he passed on the beat.

    Hmmm, even though it seems he didn't dig the beat, it still kicks the ass of over half the tracks on Lasers.
