your amazing you say that which people should hear yet are afraid to do so and it should always be that way thats why i admire your music and the world is more corrupt than people should know and there should be a revolution under you and the zeitgeists guidance something has to change

Honestly Lupe, I could give a shit about what so called fans say about LASERS. If they think it's just an album, they're idiots. I understand what LASERS is, what The Cool was and a small insight as to what goes on in your head. If they want more, all they need to do is get your mixtapes. I don't go one day without listening to your music and I can say without a doubt that it saved my life in Iraq. Keep doing your thing. I'm getting the message loud and clear.

Lupe, Beautiful Lasers is a very intimate song; every line you wrote, I can honestly relate to your feelings and demons that played inside your head. I read the interview Pitchfork did with you back in 2006 because I was interested in how time may have changed your perspective. I think the interview was interesting because even back then, it labeled you a 'study in contradictions' because your visual, (now) sometimes force-fed commercialized, appearance can contradict your true actions, words, and deepest thoughts. And even still, its an appearance that, in part, you never even intended. In the process your best intentions were lost, and now your words perplex many. Well, I think you are the definition of being misunderstood, and on such a grand scale. You're painting ponies, when you can paint a picasso - couldn't have phrased that better myself. The sometimes distracting hooks and obnoxious (played louder than the voice) beats, doesn't take away from meaningful, heartfelt messages your music still gives me. Despite the long mediation by your employer to develop and push mediocrity. And I don't think fans are naive enough to think this is your masterpiece, your classic, and that you couldn't offer more (even to the current Lasers). I'm sure you're on top of the world right now, so enjoy it, and then go back to making your art and I'll go back to appreciating it! Thanks for everything.

Gave you a dedication--couldn't meet you b/c i couldn't get a FUCKING GREEN WRIST BAND ON TIME. FUCKING FYE. Wanted to give you my book on how to take down the FUCKERS IN CHARGE. Hit me the fuck up if you see it, i have many plans.... on how to beat these fuckers. Love, -The Chicago Love Police
