    We've finally been given the news we have been campaigning for; a release date. 8th March 2011. A single is due on the 26th October.

    As for the protest, it will still continue and take place, as a sort of victory march. A few people who went to a Lupe concert, following the news, confirmed that Lupe will still attend.

    Read about this yesterday. I so fucking hope this works. Just judging from "Shining Down" I can say this album is sick. If they don't release it we will me missing out on a great record.

    In other Lupe news, he's moving on and working on a new record called Food and Liquor: The Great American Rap Album. Check out the first single "Go To Sleep"

    Thanks for the support.
    If you're in the area, try to attend. If not, at least pass the message on. Lupe's showing, after all.

    We're working on getting some other artists to attend, too.

    I know you're supporting a cause and all, but isn't double posting frowned upon?

    Atlantic is a fucking dick! I hope Atlantic buy out Lupe's contract after this so that Lupe can finally do his own thing independently. That's a bunch of bullshit what Atlantic is pulling, and they deserve to go to hell after all of what they are doing to Lupe.

    Yes, it's pretty disgusting. Just watching the 'Lasers manifesto' shows why people should listen to this album.

    I hope it will bring LASERS soon. Maybe Lupe can get out of his wretched contract once and for all, and release music through FNF instead :)

    I think they will be on the album. They are probably going with a new song as the official first single because it's like a fresh start, with the new release date and all.
