Fiasco’s giving fans some time to think it before joining in on the public execution of his own music. The ordeal is scheduled to go down New Year’s Day, 2016.   

He wrote on Facebook, "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! "

Lasers dropped amid tension between Fiasco and his label, Atlantic Records. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard album chart garnering the now 33-year-old artist his second consecutive Top 10 LP.

Despite a good showing on the charts and production credits like the Neptunes and Alex Da Kid, and features from Sklyer Grey, Trey Songz and John Legend, Lasers received mixed reviews

In a 2011 Complex  interview, Fiasco admitted to having “love and hate” for Lasers.I listen to it and I’ll like some of the songs. But when I think about what it took to actually get the record together and everything that I went through on this record — which is something I can’t separate — I hate this album. “  

Read his full plan to destroy Lasers below. 

My 3rd musically related thing I want to accomplish this year is not to make another album but to do something waaaay...
