After what seems like years of struggling to get his much anticipated third LP, Lasers, an official release, Lupe Fiasco is finally getting closer to that goal. Lasers will be out on March 8, 2011, and today he went on Ustream to release the first single to the album, "The Show Goes On". The Modest Mouse sampling song has a bubbly, poppy feel to it, not unexpected for a first single. Hopefully Lupe gets some radio play and love from the general public on this one, to help reinforce his label's confidence in him. The man is one of the best rappers out and should be in the position to release music without having to fight his way through all the politricks first.
Lupe's own website is not releasing the track for download, so I'm going to support the man and follow suit. Hit the link below to visit his site, where you can stream the song or purchase it.
