WU: It seems there will be a victory march instead of a protest this Friday. Can you tell me about the resolution that was reached between you and Atlantic Records.

LF: We had a difference of creative opinion, difference of business direction, so we reconciled it all out. Everybody got to say what they wanted, and we had a good meeting about it. Everything is fine, we are walking hand and hand into the sunset. We got the album released because of the fans, marches, petitions and protests, and everything. The people worked, they listened, they heard.

WU: What statement does this resolution send to other artists (possibly Nas), record labels, and fans about the current state of the music industry?

LF: The power is in the people, where it's always been. Stay true to your fans, the people who support you and pay the tickets to come to your shows. I buy the clothes that I have on with the money I get from people watching me perform, it's that direct of a connection. Respect that relationship and there's no telling what they'll do for you when you need that support. Stay true to your fans.

WU: How has social media and global technology, like we used in World Up's Living Remix workshop, affected your ability to reconcile with Atlantic Records to get "Lasers" a release date?

LF: It started on social media. It was all these different kids from all over the world connected into these one or two forums or blogs that everybody frequented. That's where they kind of organized it, and you could see it in real time. They got a checklist of things that need to take care of, who's going to get the vans, who's going to get the permits who's going to write the press release, who's going to do "da, da, da," and check it off. So, it's like a real-time collective growing social activity, which is dope.

You had it in the past with a conference call. When you had to actually come down and have a meeting or at the church or wherever people met. With this one you get kids from all over the world. So even if you had a small community of kids and fans in one place and that's where all your fans was, imagine now you got access to those little pockets in every country in every state in every town in the world. It's dope.

I'm now 100% positive this guy was on the forums, or at least read it, while we were on KLive.
