Lupe Fiasco wants to destroy all copies of his 2011 album ‘Lasers’.
The record was not well-received at the time of its release and now the US rapper is 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!”

In June, Lupe Fiasco posted an open letter to ‘White Supremacy’ criticising those who advocate the belief. It was written in response to the tragedy in South Carolina where a 21-year-old Dylann Roof entered a church in Charleston on June 17 and murdered nine black parishioners.
