I’ll tell you why.
He released a sucky album.
Lasers was his Vietnam.
(‘You can’t relate those two, that’s disgraceful’)
Chi Town’s finest has a new mixtape out, Friend of The People. If this was a maths lesson I would be using those crocodile signs:
Lasers<Friends Of The People but Fotp<The Cool.
In essence, it is much better than Lasers (not too difficult to achieve) with Lupe’s trademark wodsmithery
but lacks the instrumental finesse of The Cool. If anything it’s too dancy a mixtape for me.
Give it a whirl, I dare ya: http://www.earmilk.com/2011/11/24/lupe-fiasco-–-friend-of-the-people-i-fight-evil-mixtape/
