Although Lupe Fiasco's upcoming album "Lasers" has suffered noticeable delays due to label disputes and leaked tracks, the Grammy award-winning rapper plans on making this release his biggest yet.
"Lasers," out March 8, 2011, will feature superstar producing duo the Neptunes, as well as guest spots from Trey Songz and U.K. rapper Sway. The album's lead single "The Show Goes On," which saw a proper release and video last week, is a song Fiasco said will appeal to "die-hard Lupe Fiasco fans."
"It's a big controversial record, and a lot of ears should perk up on this song. It really is what the direction of 'Lasers' is all about," Fiasco tells Billboard.com...For now, Fiasco looks forward to the release of "Lasers" -- and to furthering his own musical legacy, despite the industry hiccups that have plagued him along the way.
"I think I set the precedent for record labels -- showed everyone that you can have rappers that don't fit the format and still have a presence," says Fiasco. "You look at a person like me, or Kanye [West], and it was sort of a shock to the system. I definitely think I was part of changing that, and an influence to a lot dudes that are coming out today."
