Lupe Fiasco "Lasers" Concept Series: Beautiful Lasers (2 Ways)

This piece was very difficult to conceptualize. There were just a lot of different directions I could take it in. The track itself is very dark. It portrays the suicidal thoughts Lupe had during the process of making the album. When I hear the track it makes me think of him battling his expectations for himself and pleasing his label aka being mainstream. It's almost like two different artists. I'll leave the rest up to interpretation though. I designed this to have multiple messages to it.
