the album, put together an online petition with the help of Rhymestyle from the LupEND Blog fan site, demanding that Atlantic Records release Lasers,
due to the fact the album was announced last year and still doesn't have a release date. The petition garnered considerable attention on hip hop blog
sites as well as attaining over 5,000 signatures on its first day. It has since reached over 32,000 signatures. In response to the petition, Lupe
Fiasco released a song titled "B.M.F. (Building Minds Faster)" as a gift for his fans. The story was featured on many sites, including CNN and MTV, To
further on stress the petition to Atlantic Records, a number of Lupe Fiasco fans set up a protest called Fiasco Friday. Fans protested outside
Atlantic Records' offices in New York City on October 15, 2010. Lupe Fiasco announced on Twitter that he would be attending, where he gave a speech.
On October 7, 2010, Lupe Fiasco tweeted "Victory!" along with posting a picture of himself with Atlantic President, Julie Greenwald. On October 8,
Atlantic Records tweeted the release date for Lasers would be March 8, 2011
