The tracklist for Lupe Fiasco's LASERS has now been released along with a bevy of pre-order packages and can be seen above. 12 tracks. I was initially expecting more based on Lupe's last two albums and then I remember: labels make albums that long now, ha. At least iTunes should have some bonus tracks. Nevertheless, I am glad to see Sarah Green on the intro, my two favorite R&B singers Trey Songz & John Legend as featured guests ("Never Forget You" still goes), and "State Run Radio" make the cut. "State Run Radio" has been in quite demand from Lupe fans ever since Fiasco has been performing it since as far back as last spring, I'd like to say. Definitely an awesome track from the sounds of it so far, so, psyched on that news as well. One question that I have though: Who is MDMA? And why are they featured on three tracks? Welp, after googling it, you get a bunch of links on ecstasy, but refine your search to include 'MySpace' + 'music' and it led me to... wait for it... their MySpace here. After some quick surfing there, I am still left with a small sample size, but I definitely want to see what these guys are all about (if this is indeed the same MDMA that will be featured on the album... seems very rock/hip hop so far). That does it for my initial thoughts. Now all of a sudden March 8th doesn't look very far away!
EDIT: Got some tweets, messages about MDMA. Apparently it stands for Most Devoted Musician Alive and is a.k.a. Pooh Bear! Awesome, sign me up. He was fantastic on "Hi-Definition" and "We On".
