Lupe Fiasco Fans Plan “Fiasco Friday” Protest October 15, Lupe to Attend

Lupe Fiasco Fans Plan

Lupe’s fans plan to picket Atlantic Records’ offices to ensure the release of “Lasers,” and Lupe says he’ll be there too.

A group of Lupe Fiasco’s fans are moving forward with their plan to picket outside of Atlantic Records’ New York offices to speed up the release of Lupe’s Lasers album. An online campaign was started by Lupe fan Richard Barker on July 21, and to date petitiononline.com, the free service through which the petition was launched, counts 28,979 total e-signatures in support of the petition. Two weeks before the petition was launched, Lupe stated via his Twitter account that he had already turned the album in to Atlantic, and acknowledged the fan support.

The “Fiasco Friday” petition calls for supporters to bring picket signs and protest in front of Atlantic Records’ headquarters on October 15. Fans outside of New York are encouraged to protest in front of local Atlantic branches as well as spread the word via Twitter, Facebook and other social networking platforms.

After hearing about Fiasco Friday, Lupe is apparently willing to attend as well. Fiasco gave the following response via Twitter, Tuesday morning.

While Atlantic did alert fans that Lasers would still be released after the initial petition on July 24, there have been no responses since.
