Lupe Fiasco has long been an outspoken critic of the Obama regime, and the whole establishment in general.
Apparently the people who booked him for a pre-inauguration party this Sunday did not do enough research on who they were hiring, because they didn’t seem to realize that he wouldn’t exactly be giving a strong endorsement.
“Pretty much everybody who pays attention to Lupe Fiasco knows he’s not exactly a fan of President Barack Obama, but for some reason the group Start Up Rock On booked him to headline their inauguration party Sunday night. It didn’t go well. According to tweets from people who were there, Fiasco got pulled off the stage after he played an anti-Obama song for half an hour or so, and refused to move on to the next track. Foreign Policy’s Josh Rogin, CNN’s Matt Dornic, and others, tweeted from the event.”
Lupe has been outspoken about his disgust with Obama’s policies for many years, and before that he was outspoken about Bush .During an interview with CBS in 2011, he called Obama a terrorist.
“My fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama and the United States of America. I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s actually causing the other forms of terrorism.”
“You know, the root cause of terrorism is the stuff the U.S. government allows to happen. The foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists.”
The mainstream media is trashing him, and they are going to continue to. However, Lupe Fiasco certainly deserves our respect; while all of these other musicians bow down to their masters and sell the typical propaganda to the public, he had the courage to stand up and speak the truth.
In the following video found on The Daily Caller you can see Lupe removed from stage after laying down a verse about Obama ignoring the bombings in the Gaza Strip, you can also hear the crowds chanting his name despite his removal:

Rapper Lupe Fiasco was kicked off the stage during a party celebrating President Barack Obama’s second inauguration on Sunday night after performing a song that both criticized the president and indulged in 9-11 conspiracy theories.
Footage posted online by Now This News shows Fiasco, the headliner at the Start Up Rock On private event, performing “Words I Never Said,” which he released as a single two years ago. The song includes these lyrics, which can be heard in the video:
And these the same people supposedly telling us the truth
Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist
Gaza Strip was getting bombed, Obama didn’t say shit
That’s why I ain’t vote for him, next one either
I’m part of the problem
My problem is, I’m peaceful
The song also includes the lyrics, “How much money does it take to really make a full clip? 9-11, Building 7, did they really pull it?”
The video also shows Fiasco seemingly doing an a capella freestyle rap away from the microphone while members of the crowd cheer. Buzzfeed quoted Josh Rogin, a writer for The Cable, as saying Fiasco went on “an anti-Obama diatribe mid-set” and stayed on stage for 30 minutes without doing a different song. The footage does show Fiasco talking to security personnel before being led off the stage
Hypervocal, one of the three startup groups that organized the event, released a statement saying Fiasco’s performance was not cut because of its content.
“We are staunch supporters of free speech, and free political speech,” the statement said. “This was not about his opinions. Instead, after a bizarrely repetitive, jarring performance that left the crowd vocally dissatisfied, organizers decided to move on to the next act.”
Fiasco has a history of being outspoken about issues related to the Palestinian population. Two songs on his 2012 album Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1 reference their ongoing differences with Israel; and two years ago he performed at the BET Hip Hop Awards wearing both a Palestinian flag and an Occupy Wall Street shirt.
Watch video of both Fiasco’s performance and his removal from the stage on Sunday, posted on YouTube by Mr. Viral News, above.
Rapper Lupe Fiasco was ushered off stage Sunday after a 30-minute politically charged performance at a pre-inauguration party.
The socially-conscious lyricist took the opportunity to bash the President’s foreign policy in a song that had partygoers confused, since it was supposed to be an Obama celebration event.
“Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist, Gaza strip was getting bombed, and Obama didn’t say sh–,” he sang.
The party, hosted by start-up group Hypervocal, featured Fiasco as the headliner. Several party attendees shared photos and videos of the rapper being escorted from the stage by burly security guards.
Early Monday, Hypervocal’s Twitter page read, “Disappointed that an artist took opportunity to use an event celebrating innovation/startups to make a political statement.”
But in an official statement, the group maintained that the rapper was not thrown off for voicing his opinion.
“We are staunch supporters of free speech, and free political speech,” it read. “This was not about his opinions. Instead, after a bizarrely repetitive, jarring performance that left the crowd vocally dissatisfied, organizers decided to move on to the next act.”
Recently, Lupe Fiasco caused a stir when he shut down his Twitter account and canceled the release of what would have been his upcoming sequel album “Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Part 2.”
