Lupe Fiasco's 'Lasers' gets a release date

Lupe Fiasco fans and his label can now breathe a sigh of relief, and both have reason to celebrate: The artist's third studio album, "Lasers," finally has a release date.

Last week, Lupe tweeted a picture of himself and Atlantic Records President Julie Greenwald that was all smiles. The artist had been dealing with months of tension with his label over the release of “Lasers," and the photo came a week before fans' protests - dubbed “FiascoFriday” - were set to take place outside of Atlantic’s offices in New York City, with another march set in Chicago.

According to the artist, “Lasers” will hit shelves March 8, 2011, with the first single coming out October 26 via his website.

KP searches for answers on 'Eastbound & Down'

We’re now about halfway through the second season of “Eastbound and Down,” and right before last night’s third episode I found myself asking the same question you were probably asking yourself: “Is Brooks Conrad currently the worst infielder in Major League Baseball?”
