So I was doing my daily walk through BBC Ice Cream and saw the link for an online petition for Lupe’s new album, LASERS. In case you don’t know, the album has been going through industry politics and still doesn’t have a solid release date from what I have read. Sign the petition here: http://www.petitiononline.com/Beaming/petition-sign.html

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court won’t hear an appeal from Lupe’s mentor, who was convicted on drug charges despite complaints that his jurors weren’t asked whether they had any biases against firearms.
The high court on Monday refused to hear an appeal from Charles Patton, the Olympia Fields man who was convicted and sentenced to 44 years in prison on drug charges.
He appealed his conviction, saying that jurors weren’t questioned by his trial judge on whether they had any bias against firearms.
Patton had a loaded firearm when he was arrested.The Illinois Appellate Court threw out the appeal, saying the judge did not have to ask about potential firearm bias on his own.
