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.
