They say there is a time and place for everything. Unfortunately for Lupe, at an inauguration ball was probably not the time, nor place to bash the President.
Last night, Lupe Fiasco took to the stage as the headliner at StartUp RockOn’s inauguration celebration ball at the Hamilton in Washington, DC. According to various accounts on twitter, things went sour fairly quickly after he performed an anti-war song that bashed the President for over 30 minutes.
The track, titled “Words I Never Said“, was released as a single last year, and on the record he raps:
And these the same people that supposed to be telling us the truth
Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist
Gaza strip was getting bombed, Obama didn’t say sh-t
That’s why I ain’t vote for him, next one either
Why would anyone book Lupe Fiasco, who has been very vocal about his political views, has expressed that he refuses to vote and has referred to President Obama as a terrorist, to perform at an Inauguration party? Why would he even accept the offer?
