With only a few weeks before his long-awaited third album, grammy-award winning (not that that means a lot now that the show is a joke), Lupe Fiasco has come forward to talk about how the new "Lasers" album wont be as good as he wants due to his label taking so long to put it out.
"One thing I try to stress about this project is, I love and hate this album," Fiasco explained in an interview. "I listen to it and I'll like some of the songs. But when I think about what it took to actually get the record together and everything that I went through on this record–which is something I can't separate–I hate this album. A lot of the songs that are on the album, I'm kinda neutral to. Not that I don't like them, or that I hate them, it's just I know the process that went behind it. I know the sneaky business deal that went down behind this song, or the artist or singer or songwriter who wrote this hook and didn't want to give me this song in the first place. So when I have that kind of knowledge behind it, I'm just kind of neutral to it like, 'Another day, another dollar.' As opposed something like The Cool, which is more of my own blood, sweat, and tears, and my own control. With this record, I'm little bit more neutral as to the love for the record." (Complex)
