First CRS returns, now Lupe’s third album, Lasers, has finally got a release date. March 8th 2011. Mark your calendars.
The first single will be released on October 26th. Those dates seems a bit off to me, why release a single almost six months before the album drops? Any mainstream buzz it generates will be dead by the time March comes around, although I guess we should just be thankful we’ve finally got a date at all.
Here’s my favourite song from Lupe’s first album, “Hurt Me Soul”, where he describes his love/hate relationship with hip-hop as he grew up.
