Lupe Fiasco Gets Ghostly, Ominous On New Track

By: Clover Hope / February 10, 2010

Over a ghostly mid-tempo track with a mellow “Day & Nite” type feel, Lupe melodically spits about a girl chasing fame and the party life like a zombie chases the night. Consider “What U Want” a creepier version of Kanye West’s synth-heavy “Flashing Lights.” It works. Lupe Tweeted today: “Proceed is NOT from Lasers. What U Want IS from Lasers.” With this and his first single, “Beaming,” off Lasers, we’re in for a treat come spring. –Brad Wete
