Did Anonymous force Atlantic Records to release Lupe Fiasco’s project?


So this happened:

Well then…something interesting happened. Cause Anon tweeted this…

Annnnnnnd turns out Atlantic Records tweeted this….


WELP!  I guess Atlantic Records didn’t want those problems, huh?  Cause trust me, it WAS going to be a problem. Lupe showed his gratitude as well:

An explanation:

The group released this statement:

  1. Citizens of the World and lovers of conscious music,
  2. We are Anonymous.
  4. 24 hours ago we released a short Twitter ultimatum. We called upon record label Atlantic Records, responsible for releasing conscious rap artist Lupe Fiasco’s long awaited Album. We demanded a statement from the label within 24 hours to release a date or we would unleash the complete and utter fury of our collective on their company and executives. 21 hours later they released a short Tweet citing the album and it’s release date.
  6. At this time it can be concluded that we have proved our point. We wish music that is educating the masses to keep being released. We will fight for that. Lupe Fiasco, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Common and others are the moving force behind conscious rap. This is music we will fight for.
  8. Operation Atlantic, Operation Free Lupe; disengaged.
  9. Mission Accomplished.
  11. We are Anonymous.
  12. Never cease to expect us.


Looks like things aren’t all good between Lupe Fiasco and Atlantic Records, huh?

Also, I thought this was interesting:
