Lupe Fans Launch Petition For The Release Of ‘Lasers’ Album

Mike Coppola, FilmMagic

In February, Chi-Town rapper Lupe Fiasco announced that he had submitted the final version of his third full-length album ‘Lasers,’ to Atlantic Records. Since then, Lupe’s fans have played the waiting game, amidst rumors that the LP was set to drop in early Spring. That tentative release has come and gone, and now Lupe’s fans have decided to take matters into their own hands.

On July 13, Lupe explained to impatient fans via Twitter that the delay was solely the fault of his label, Atlantic Records. “‘Lasers’ is out of my hands guys and gals… It’s done and that’s all I can tell you…when they drop it…when they drop it…they drop it…so drop it…” he wrote. “Really appreciate the extra extra effort you guys are putting out to get Lasers released…not fallen on deaf ears up at HQ!”Some of this “extra effort” Lupe referred to now includes a petition that his fans have launched in order to get Atlantic Records to drop the highly-anticipated record. The grammatical errors in ‘The Release of The Lasers Album’ petition doesn’t do much for its’ credibility, but so far, the appeal has amassed more than 1,600 signatures.

Despite the album delay, Lupe has already performed numerous dates on ‘The Steppin’ Laser‘ tour both locally and overseas. His last studio album was 2007′s ‘The Cool,’ a follow-up to his debut effort, ‘Food & Liquor,’ released just one year earlier.
