  5. This interview is very eye-opening with respect to Lasers.

    Honestly, I thought Superstar was a good song which also happened to be a great pop record. And the rest of the songs on The Cool were rooted in hip-hop with unique beats, lyrics and flow.

    It's annoying that the record companies forced him to change his style. It's sounding like Lasers will be a pop-rooted album laced with some rapping. And I'm not happy about that at all.

    The problem with the pop approach is that a lot of Lupe's fans are fans because of his hip-hop. And they're pretty much evangelists for his music - trying to introduce new people to it. But if he's going directly for the crossover crowd, it's a wild card cause the fans who were evangelizing his music might not feel this new pop direction.

    In the end, I support Lupe because he's given us two great albums and many mixtapes. I really hope he does put out a hip-hop mixtape to let his hip-hop fans know he's still interested.

    I don't have anything against Japanese Cartoon but truthfully speaking I'm a Lupe Fiasco fan because of his _Hip-Hop_ music.

  6. Also, I wish he'd stop calling it "The People's Album" as if we were hoping for a pop record by Lupe Fiasco.

    New Lupe is very much welcome but it can't be The People's Album if it isn't an album Lupe Fiasco is fully proud of.
