Lupe Fiasco Kicked Off Stage At Obama Party...Plays Anti-War Song for 30 Minutes

blackrainblackrain Posts: 19,544 Regulator
Lupe Fiasco reportedly created a bit of a row on Sunday by insulting President Obama during an inaugural event.

Although Fiasco was booked as the headliner for the StartUp RockOn concert in celebration of Obama's reelection, the 30-year-old Chicago rapper apparently had no plans to cheer the current administration. Instead, after taking the stage at The Hamilton in Washington, he reportedly announced that he didn't vote for the president in the 2012 election and spent more than 30 minutes performing an anti-war song

    Lupe's old music was pretty much the same shit he criticizes today before he tried to become the black skate board kid for marketing with F&L...and many people he rolls with and reps for, like his man Chill, are well known and not for being boy scouts growing up...pretty much Lupe needs to check his own circle of people around him before criticizing everyone else's and what they do

    once people start breaking this down for what it is
    (attention whoring)

    watch Lupe take to twitter whining about how everybody else are "blind,sheep,zombies..." etc,etc

    I don't like Obama or Lupe so I have no bias when it comes to this.

    Lupe did a fucked up thing by agreeing to do a show for a cause he doesn't believe in only to go on there and perform in a way to disrespect the President. You don't like Obama? Cool, keep it to yourself if you're going to headline an event that is for him, or have your principles and just say you won't be doing the event because you don't agree with his policies. But to go out there and put on a show and actually go against Obama in the process not only makes the Obama administration look bad, it makes hip hop and Lupe look bad as well and brings into question his loyalty and integrity. Not to mention I'm sure the GOP will like having this to talk about.

    Lupe been talking about President Obama for a while now. If he put him on than it's his own fault, no one is gonna change up because it's an Inaguration time.

    Damn, someone hates on Obama, y'all niggas jump on him. I can see who the sheep is.

    People who the President would use a drone on if they don't do what he says to do.

    Lupe known about Obama for a while now living in Chicago...if he hated him so much he shouldn't have said some shit back in 2006/2007 when we all knew Obama was gonna be the Democratic presidential nominee in the next election...Lupe the same nigga that cant even deal with Chief Keef

    Folks criticize Obama all the time...and the criticism is often legit...Lupe is just being a bitch about his way of doing it....in an effort to make his political point, he's doing a disservice to his fans in terms of the quality of his music, performances, interviews, etc.. The very people who put him in such a position for his point to be heard adn that's not a good way to keep people supporting you so your points can continue to be heard

    He knew Chief Keef was a lost case, but he still had his hand open, but keef didn't want to extend his hand. So what is he suppose to do about that?

    just for those that missed it

    to his credit, Lupe handled himself well here


    but as someone accurately  pointed out: "he (O'Reilly)  scheduled someone on his show that called Obama a terrorist, the take away from that whole segment is the correlation between Obama and the word terrorist... Fox knows this and accomplished what they wanted to accomplish......"





    but in the end he played himself........

    What an idiot. Both Lupe and the event planner. It's not like they could have did a quick Google search on this clown. You know this niggardly is extreme when Bill O'Riley Raleigh for the president when he interviewed this fool.
