Lupe Fiasco's third album, Lasers, which was released in March 2011, is the most disappointing, most disproportionately hyped rap album of this young century. Thankfully, Lupe is now asking dissatisfied fans to send him their physical copies of the album so that he can have the CDs destroyed—with a laser.
In a Facebook post, Lupe cites a recent documentary that revisits Atari's mass-burial of its many unsold E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial cartridges as the inspiration for his wanting to destroy copies of Lasers. "I want to unmake an album," Lupe writes. "if you have a physical copy of LASERS that you absolutely hate and wish for it to be rendered non-existent then you can send it back to me and I'll have it destroyed with an actual giant laser and send it into next world in spectacular grand fashion!"
"You not getting any money back or an apology or anything like that," he adds. "If your down hit me up in the comments or on Twitter with the hashtag #TheReturnOfLasers and if we get enough #LaserHaters willing to have their physical copy destroyed then will do it on New Year's Day 2016!!!"
If Lupe and the haters have their way, New Year's will, literally, be lit.
