Lets just go ahead and pretend that Lasers Lupe Fiascos highly anticipated third LP isnt ever coming out. I mean think about it. Fans have petitioned for its release, and the album has been finished for two years. Hell, its followup Food and Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album is also ready to go to. So why wont Atlantic Records release it?
The situation with me and my record company has gotten to the point where were really at our final straws, Fiasco told Complex last week, I was ready to give [Lasers] to [fans] two and a half years ago. So whats a man at wits end supposed to do?
Put on a fake British accent and record a punk album under the moniker Japanese Cartoon. Duh.
Fiasco whose real name is Wasalu Jaco detailed what he calls his Plan B in the recent interview, and his comments are interesting to say the least. He says Japanese Cartoon was inspired by Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis, who Fiasco says is like a straight nerd he doesnt look like the rock and roll type, but when he got on stage he became a completely different animal. He goes on to discuss why he initially denied being part of the group, which he also calls his lifeblood, adding that, If Lupe Fiasco fails and Lasers never comes out, I have to do something I still have to make music.
