Everyone know's that Lupe Fiasco's "Lasers" album has been pushed and pushed back but recently fans's submitted a petition to Atlantic Records to get it in stores asap. Calling the petition a sign of progression, Lupe talked about ho wmuch of an impact his fans have on him.
"I love to see progression," he said yesterday via phone. "I love it. I love to see this petition. It brought me to tears a couple of times like, 'these n—as really f— with me. All these kids and these fans f— with me and it's some positive sh–. Go to Wearenotlosers.com and see what Lasers really is. … That's what they're petitioning for. Listen to 'I'm Beamin,' the song. It reaffirms what we're doing…I don't think the label cares about an album. I don't think n—as care. People just want their number-one record. They don't care about the rest of the album. I was talking to an engineer the other day and he said, 'These n—as don't even care about mixing an album no more.' They just want the first three songs. Three singles. They get them, one, two, three, they don't care what's on the rest of the album. I know this for sure. I've seen it. You can't blame them because of the attention span of the game and the attention span of music, how fast things are going. You only got them one, two, three shots. I'm not no fool. I'm looking at it like 'Yeah, you're right.'"
