Lupe Fiasco Fans Gear Up For Protest
They're calling on Atlantic Records to release 'Lasers'
17-year-old Matthew La Corte believes protesting outside of the record label will send a political message to executives.
He told Village Voice: "So what idea is Atlantic Records putting out? That it's okay to bring our children up with this music that's all about me going out and partying tonight? Is that really what we're all looking for?
"I think there's a lot of other things that rappers can be expressing, and the things that are on the radio are really do not reflect what this society is all about.
“That's why there's so much push behind Lupe, because he's really much more than just a rapper from Chicago. He represents a generation, and a movement.
Despite his stance, it seems La Corte has been less supportive of Lupe's career than he's making out however - at least finacially - saying:
"Did I buy his albums? No. I'll be honest, I did not buy the records, I just listened to them over the internet."
