Published Oct 26, 2010Now that all that Lasers feuding is over, Lupe Fiasco is finally getting ready to roll out his long-delayed new album. So it makes sense that we're now getting the new Lasers track, "The Show Goes On." However, what may make you shake your head a bit is how much Fiasco has borrowed/sampled from Modest Mouse's 2004 hit "Float On."
The similarities are undeniable, so unless Lupe is gearing up for a big and ugly lawsuit, we're assuming he cleared this with Isaac Brock and the guys. And considering there's already that god awful Kidz Bop version out there, this latest re-imagining of Modest Mouse's tune is fine by us.
Hear "The Show Goes On" for yourself down in that widget and do a bit of comparing with Modest Mouse's "Float On" down a bit further.
Lasers is due out via Atlantic on March 8.
