Lupe Fiasco Mends Relationship with Label

Lupe Fiasco and Julie Greenwald

A week before a protest was set to take place outside of Atlantic Records in New York City, Lupe Fiasco and his label appear to be on the mend. The Chicago native tweeted a picture of him and Atlantic executive Julie Greenwald together in front of a giant Atlantic poster, with Lupe giving the thumbs up and wearing a giant grin on his face.

“Victory!” he wrote, suggesting that his oft-delayed third album Lasers may be released after months of the label pushing back its date.

Fans were planning to march outside of the label’s NYC headquarters on “Fiasco Friday” if a release date wasn’t announced before October 15. Lupe himself tweeted that he would be in attendance to support the cause if label heads didn’t give in to their demands.

    i dont think lupe is the type to make a marketing stunt out of all of this… thats more like 50.
    but i think all this was legit, and his label wasn’t feeling his music. I think is album’s gonna be OK. I think its gonna be less than Food & Liquor tho..

    this is ridiculous because now the album is going to come out…AND IT’S STILL NOT GOING TO SELL ANY RECORDS OR HAVE ANY CHART TOPPING SINGLES. then what happens? it’s not like he ever sold that many records to begin with and he’s had all this hype. even the guy who started the protest admitted he never brought any of his albums. wtf???
