Lupe Fiasco has officially reconciled with his record label and is set to release his latest album.
As previously reported, Lupe called out Atlantic Records at a concert saying that they were stalling the release of his completed project Lasers.

Before that, a number of Lupe fans planned to protest the company on “Fiasco Friday”, a day where'd they'd gather outside of the label office and demand the album's release.

Now the protest may officially be off since the rapper has met with Atlantic Records executives.

Lupe tweeted a picture to his fans last night of himself and Atlantic Records President, Julie Greenwald with the caption; “Victory.”

Since then a new release date for Lasers has been set, March 8, 2011.

The Problemaddicts pushed the boundaries of rap music with their 2008 release The Dark Side of Oz. The 12-track mash-up of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of The Moon and The Wizard of Oz soundtrack landed in College Music Journal’s Top 10 Hip Hop charts, winning over a variety of fans in the process. Their follow up, a free downloadable mixtape entitled Burn This Shit , has been showing up across the blogosphere with great reviews as they move towards their untitled 3rd LP, due this fall.
Moke & Tone- Moke & Tone is the combination of Hard Time’s MokeOut, and The Problemaddict’s Producer/ MC, Tone.
