Summary: This one’s a little depressing, but that doesn’t mean it’s bad.
About Artist: Lupe Fiasco is one of the greatest lyricists of our time. Lupe cuts through all the bullshit and breaks the boundries of the genre. Lupe Fiasco has struggled with his label Atlantic Records in an epic battle over artistic direction that at one point looked like it meant that his upcoming LASERS would never see the light of day. Lupe has undergone a pretty radical transformation as he has pretty much forsaken the mainstream to speak his mind on personal and social issues through his music.
About Song: I might describe this song as a kind of Emo-Rap. It is consistant with Lupe’s recent space-age sound coupled with the 808’s and Heartbreak autotuneness that Kanye made popular a few years ago. This song is a leaked track off of LASERS Lupe’s much anticipated album coming out March 8th. BUY A COPY! A lot of people have very high hopes for this album and at the very least its release is a moral victory for the movement Lupe has built. Check out another song from LASERS on here
Favorite Part:
“Sometimes livin’ in a word like this,
it’s pretty hard not to go insane,
not pretty if you don’t comply,
pretty easy if you don’t complain..” 0:44

“no win when it’s me against me,
one of us ain’t gonna survive,
my heart been broke for a while,
yours has been the one keeping me alive..” 1:23

“This world’s such a fucked up place,
my mind’s in such a fucked up state
Everything down here sucks,
maybe what’s up there is great,
We all gotta go one day,
I just wanna cut to the chase” 1:59
I like the double meaning of “cut to the chase”
