Lupe Fiasco album gets release date; protests still planned

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Power to the people: Atlantic Records has scheduled a March 8 release date for Lupe Fiasco's long-delayed third album, "Lasers."

The scheduled fan protests -- organized last week, when the record label still seemed to be stalling on releasing the album two years after Fiasco said it was ready -- will still take place this Friday in Chicago and New York City.

"We're turning it into a victory march," said Chicago protest organizer Dan Winchester on Monday morning, "both celebrating all the hard work and pressure we put on Atlantic and also showing them what it will look like if they try this again -- protesting the two-and-a-half years they basically played around with Lupe's career. ... Luckily for Atlantic, they caved in."

Lupe was explaining the situation last week. Details on the local march here.
