The Moment: Last October, Lupe joined a large group of his fans to protest outside of Atlantic Records for the release of Lasers.
The Reaction: Atlantic actually agreed to sit down with Lupe after the protest and even gave him a March release date for the album.
Did It Help or Hurt His Career? HELP! It might have seemed a little controversial—and even ridiculous—at the time, but this protest is one of the very things that helped Lasers get to the point that it's at now.
