This release is terrifying for me. It could redeem so much of what's happened, or taint his good past with his awful present state.

To think I used to be so excited for CRS material.

Lupe is becoming the biggest tragedy is rap.

Please prove me wrong.

To me, the biggest terrorist is Lupe Fiasco in the history of rap.

Lyrically, he's still one of the best, but what the fuck is he thinking half the time? He picks shitty beats and his whole promotion game is obsolete. Why won't big names work with him? Someone get this dude a Bangladesh beat and he'll be a king again.
I wouldn't say he's still up there lyrically either sadly. :/ I think he CAN be, but I don't think he's shown it. And I agree, his production needs a drastic change. He's got classics, he should be able to get a big producer, and even if not there are enough upcoming producers that are better than the guys he's working with.

Damn....Neptunes all day
I just looked at the track listing to figure out what track they produced and it turns out they weren't on it after all. -_- Which explains a lot.

He needs a couple good features. Get Pusha on a track. Get Andre. Get Kanye. Get Bun B. Get anyone.
Lupe needs a Clipse feature, a CRS track, an Andre feature, a Wayne feature to make him look a bit better, and a couple hologram Tupac verses.

I don't get it how will that make him look better?
Because with Lupe's lyricism next to Wayne's post-Carter II lyricism, Lupe's lyrics will shine much brighter. Pairing him with any other of the aforementioned will make him pale in comparison, even though they'd be great songs.
