The Chicago rapper last year revealed that he would release three albums in 2016, named ‘Droga’, ‘Skulls’ and ‘Roy’.
In September 2015 Fiasco also revealed he wanted to destroy copies of his 2011 album ‘Lasers’, asking dissatisfied fans to send him their physical copies of the album, in order to have them destroyed with a laser.
Fiasco wrote on Facebook: “My 3rd musically related thing I want to accomplish this year is not to make another album but to do something waaaay stupider… I want to unmake an album. I watched the ATARI E.T. documentary and got inspired. So here’s my idea. For all you people who really hated my 3rd album LASERS for whatever reason in the universe I want you to send it back to me so I can destroy it with an actual Laser. You not getting any money back or an apology or anything like that.
“The fact still remains that a lot of people really loved LASERS (Me Included) despite the popular myth that it’s one of the worst rap albums ever but sometimes the myth can be stronger than the truth. So yeah… 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!”
