We've been hearing a lot about Lupe Fiasco's third and possibly final album titled LupE.N.D.Lasers. While Lupe Fiasco leaks are a dime a dozen around the internets (I just stay away now), Lupe himself has confirmed that "What U Want" will be on Lasers.
With a release supposedly slated in early 2010, "What U Want" serves as the acting first single or taste of what we can expect from Lasers. With simple, laid back beats and equally chill and relaxing supporting vocals, we find ourselves nodding our heads along to a Lupe Fiasco heavily channelling his contemporary, Kid Cudi. If Lupe Fiasco was to perpetuate a trend in hip-hop, choosing the Kid Cudi/808 & Heartbreaks path is most refreshing. I can admit I'm growing weary of the Young Money set. You can listen to "What U Want" below:
There has been no release date announced for Lasers yet. Lupe Fiasco blames his major record label.
