  2. Let's get Lasers to be rap album of the year. It's not even Lupe at his best, yet it trumps every other album choice on that list. Get Lupe a real rap grammy!!

  3. really??? im sorry, but Kanye needs to get the grammy for my beautiful dark twisted fantasy...even if you're a lu fan, u have to admit that lasers is nowhere near MBDTF

  4. You guys are delusional if you think Lasers stands a chance, "matter of fact it doesn't have half a stance to stand if it stood half a chance." :)

    I like TSGO, but I don't think Lasers deserves to even be nominated.

  5. IMMA LET YOU FINISH ANONYMOUS, but Lupe had one of the best albums of the YEAR!! I liked and disliked tracks from MBDTF. Personally, when I weigh it out I get more misses than hits when listening to MBDTF,especially when comparing it to his previous rap albums, and seeing Lupe's label situation, he still fit messages into all of his tracks. Consistency means much to me and Kanye's has seemed to diminish with fame while Lupe's kept it real.

  6. Lasers was terrible, if some insane way it wins it means that Atlantic wins.

    Hell im being a fucking hater, I hate Lasers, I hate Atlantic, I hate dub-step, I hate mainstream media, and I hate the new Lupe.

    Fuck Atlantic and fuck Lasers.

    He needs to take Atlantic's dick out his ass.

    Bring back Sountrakk, Matthew Santos and Gemstones and make a real album for your fans.

  12. I hope the show goes on wins one of those. It's like an FU to them for forcing that shit on Lu. The song that says fuck Atlantic is the song that wins a Grammy lmao

  13. I couldn't agree more fuck Alantic Records.

  14. Lupe's audience is too broad now, hence all of the arguing in the comment section:

    -Some people like him for his flow
    -Some people like his wordplay
    -Some people like his socially conscious songs
    -Some people like his storytelling
    -Some people like his old-school beats
    -Some people like his new, poppy beats
    -Some people just like his hooks

    How the hell can he please everybody?!!

  15. lupe did split ties with all of the original fnf crew. Unless you can remember the last time u saw bishop g, gemstones, or matthew santos on stage with him??


    Waiting...

    ReplyDelete
  16. ^ You're being an idiot. Keep waiting, bitch.

    ReplyDelete
  17. He did drop gem and matthew from fnf. He did a interview abt getting rid of most of his fnf artist. The only one I know was safe was Sarah green, I think it was right before enemy of the state dropped. Bishop is still his hype man though

  18. Wow ok @ the cmts. Lol Regardless of what ppl think of the album I'm happy he was nominated :-)

  19. I don't usually indulge in arguements online, but this guy who's talking about Lupe cutting ties with Mathew S. Bishop G and etc. has really pissed me off.

    The last proper album lupe released was The Cool in 2007. I used the word "Proper" because back then, he was not restricted. He didn't have to water down his lyrics and use BS beats. Mathew S. Bishop G and Soundtrakk were amongst who worked/influenced that record. It was masterpiece.

    ANYWAY, since then the record company has been messing him around. Forcing him to release a watered down record, Lasers. I remember Lupe saying, "They asked me specifically, don't rap too deep on this one. [He chuckled]"

    My point is that his most recent record isn't the same as is old stuff, hence the heavy criticism from "fans". And its not the same BECAUSE the same background staff haven't been working on it. Its not his fault, Atlantic wanted something different.

    Its NOT as if Lupe said, "I don't wanna work with Mathew Santos, Gemstones, Bishop G and Soundtrakk anymore" Use you're FUCKING head!

    So I reiterate....

    WHERE the [*F*U*C*K*] did you guys hear that Lupe split with Mathew Santos, Gemstones and Soundtrakk???

    ^ Get your facts straight or shut the FUCK up

    ___________________________________

    PS: Everyone except Mathew Santos are producers. So they don't take the stage with Lupe, idiotic moron. Not too sure when last Bishop G and Gemstones produced for Lupe, but Soundtrakk is often there.

    Mathew Santos was last with Lupe on Resurrection (The Haiti Aid song)

  20. ^^ Me again. I'd like to see proof. I wanna know exactly what he said when he split ties with Mathew S. Bishop G etc.

    Ive NEVER heard of this before

  21. Congrats Lupe on the Grammy Noms, lets fill that shelf!!

    .... funny question tho. Wtf is the difference between Record Of the Year and Song Of The Year?

    ReplyDelete
  22. To that one anonymous cat... Gemstones and Bishop aren't producers and Matthew wasn't on the Haiti track.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Gemstones left fnf on his own accord. He said it in an interview. Bishop g got a kid i believe . And sadly the only other person thar stayed in fnf was Sarah green.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I always thought that most of fnf split because if Atlantic Records?

  25. Closed minded elitist hipster hip hop head who wants to be the cool one in his group for being different but really looks like a total dickThursday, December 1, 2011 at 3:06:00 PM EST

    Lasers was awful. I think there should be a day where we all gather and have a huge bonfire with our copies.

    ReplyDelete
  26. He has a great chance of winning Best Rap Song.
    Otis: ok
    Look At Me Now: overplayed
    I Need A Doctor: no chance
    All of the Lights: maybe
    Black & Yellow: too old
    The Show Goes On: just right

  28. Well aside from me reading the comment section,

    The show goes on was an awesome song with a nice beat from MODEST MOUSE. A big F YOU to Alantic for telling him to "Dumb down his lyrics." Even though the lyrics still aren't isn't on the level of the past. It still works.
