Lupe Fiasco Kicked Out Of Inaugural Concert For Obama Bashing
Rapper Lupe Fiasco has never been a huge supporter 0f America’s first black president, Barrack Obama. You only need to listen to a song of his to see that. For fans who still weren’t sure, the Chicago naitive made it very clear while performing at an inaugural event last night while performing his hit single “Words I never Said”.
“I really think the war on terror is a bunch of bull***t, just a poor excuse for you to use up all your bullets,’ he rapped. ‘… Rush Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist, Gaza Strip was getting bombed, Obama didn’t say sh**. That’s why I ain’t vote for him, next one either, I’m a part of the problem, my problem is I’m peaceful and I believe in the people.”
The manager of the event wasted no time in cutting off the rappers microphone, but he just continued to rap, going further and further into the song. although only a small portion of the track contains blatant criticism of the president, security still escorted him the stage. It is rumored that Lupe was advised to skip past this song and refused to do so.
The organizers of the event “Start up Rock On” released a statement discussing the incident and giving their side of the story.
“Lupe Fiasco performed at this private event, and as you may have read, he left the stage earlier than we had planned, But Lupe Fiasco was not “kicked off stage” for an “anti-Obama rant.”
Lupe has sparked controversy from his comments in regards to President Obama, even at one time gaining the ire of fox pundit Bill O’reilly when he called the President a terrorist.
