Lasers to see the light of day

Lupe Fiasco has been one of my favourite hip hop artists for a long time now, even though I'm not sure what the meanings behind all his songs are. There has been a lot of drama surrounding the release of Lu's third studio album, soon after the release of The Cool the rumours were that he was only going to release one more album and it was going to be a 3-disc trilogy called L.U.P. End. For whatever reason that idea was dropped and Lasers was going to be his next studio album. Supposedly Lasers was fully recorded over a year ago and differences between Lupe and his label kept it from being released, however it seems everything's been resolved now and Lasers is set to drop in March of 2011, which brings me to the song that I'm posting. Lupe just released the first official single from the album and its pretty damn cool. The melody is based on Modest Mouse's hit Float On, which is flipped by producer Kane Beatz into a very radio-friendly track titled The Show Must Go On. Check it out below:
