Lupe Fiasco has announced the release date for his upcoming new album.
‘Lasers’ is due out on March 8, 2011 and will be the follow-up to 2007’s ‘The Cool’.
The rapper-producer – real name Wasalu Muhammad Jaco – has faced a number of delays in releasing his third LP, which will be coming out through Atlantic Records.
Revealing the news, Jaco took to Twitter with a tweet saying “Victory!” and a link to a picture of him and Atlantic Records executive Julie Greenwald.
The previous delays of ‘Lasers’ prompted a number of online petitions from fans and even threats of protests outside the building of Atlantic Records to get the label to release the album, reports Consequence Of Sound.
