I really like Lupe, I honestly do, but does anyone else see a problem with an artist that is supposed to be counter-culture and against the grain stomping on his soap box about money? If Lupe is as revolutionary as he claims shouldn't material gains mean nothing to him? Shouldn't he embrace the pirates of the internet as the last keepers of rebellion? I know everyone has to eat and music is the intellectual property of the artist, but Lupe is def not struggling to put food on the table. Maybe that intern who leaked, aka stole, the track didn't want to feel bigger than he was but wanted to give back to the movement that got him his gig in the first place. The dawn of electronic information has fundamentally changed traditional property notions in our society, and it's time artists take this into account rather than cry about all of their lost sales. "I don't trust America, after watching Zeitgeist," that may be true Lupe but you still love the capitalistic structure that keeps Uncle Sam's, and your, pockets fat.

Naw Edwuurd your not the only one. I most definitely will be buying Lasers. I bought Food & Liquor & I bought The Cool. Lasers will not be any different and I have my Lasers shirt (just like the one B.o.B.'s wearing) from the Steppin' Lasers tour. that I have not worn yet. I will not wear it outside until I go to buy the CD. Leaking anything, even artists who are less favorable, is some pretty messed up crap. That and Lupe definitely does not in any way, deserve to be leaked, downloaded, bootlegged, ect. The man releases exceptionally good Hip-Hop music in a time when it is a rarity. I bought B.o.B. and I have been waiting three years to hear another album from Lupe Fiasco. He is one of the only people I feel deserves the money I spend on a CD. Why would you take money and sales from someone you claim is your favorite or one of your favorite artist? That is just real f'd up and you just make yourself look fake. Be a true fan of Lupe and cop that CD.

I will be buying lupe's album regardless. I was surprised at how pirating and leaks REALLY hurt the artists we love. That really is some low shxt. We all went out and copped B.o.B's album, and that turned out to be a number 1 selling album in the country. To my fellow L.a.s.e.r.s. let's do the same for Lupe. Am I the only one that sees a number 1 selling album in the country?

word to this.... You know what question has been boggling me tho... what does the trilly and truly logo mean? The lightening bolt with the two bones... hmmm... i have my own guesses but one thing is for sure: with Lupe you can never be certain until he says it. >>Curiouser and Curiouser

Every single word that Lupe said in this report ... is to 100% true. We already had too many Losers in this world ... we need more Lasers ... we need 2 smile ... we need Lupe Fiasco ... let's hope your album will drop this or next month ... without that any fools get their hand on it and put it into the internet 1st & 15th

We need this album to go Diamond. I cant stand when the best artist can't sell because of leaks. The label needs to release his album soon. And Lupe, continue to do what you are doing. We need the positivity.
