Lupe Fiasco Thrown Off Stage At Inaugural Concert

Score one for truth, justice and accountability.

"At the Obama inauguration party Lupe Fiasco opened his set with his 2011 single “Words I never Said,” in which he criticizes Obama for the president’s silence after the bombing of the Gaza strip. He rapped the song over and over again for more than 20 minutes. “Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn is a racist, Gaza strip was getting bombed, Obama didn’t say s---,” he continually rhymed.

The rapper also criticizes the War on Terror and questions the Sept. 11 attacks in the song, asking “9/11, building seven, did they really pull it?”

After a staff member approached the performer to ask him to change songs, the rapper continued with his lyrics and his mic got cut, the lights were dimmed, but his band played on and so did he.  When Lupe Fiasco refused to stop, several bouncers confronted the rapper with their backs turned to the audience. He was eventually forced to leave the stage to the outrage of much of the audience".

"I'm talking about ordering a drone attack," Fiasco said. "Ordering drone attacks that go and kill mothers, innocent bystanders, children. Militants too, but the collateral damage. You're responsible for that, too."





Lupe Fiasco on Building 7, 9/11 Truth and the New World Order

From Reddit user KabulBound:

"Alright here's exactly what happened. I was center stage in the pit to his left. He went over one line for a good 40 minutes and then his mic got cut off. A host came on stage and announced that they were sorry Lupe couldn't be here tonight."

Here are the lyrics he was repeating:

"I really think the war on terror is a bunch of bullshit, Just a poor excuse for you to use up all your bullets, How much money does it take to really make a full clip, 9/11 building 7 did they really pull it, Uhh, And a bunch of other cover ups, Your childs future was the first to go with budget cuts, If you think that hurts then, wait here comes the uppercut, The school was garbage in the first place, that's on the up and up. Keep you at the bottom but tease you with the uppercrust, You get it then they move it so you never keeping up enough, If you turn on TV all you see’s a bunch of “what the fucks” Dude is dating so and so blabbering bout such and such, And that ain't Jersey Shore, homie that's the news, 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 shit.That's why I ain't vote for him, next one either, I’ma part of the problem, my problem is I’m peaceful, And I believe in the people."

This is real rock and roll. This is real punk.

This is exactly the kind of thing I normally bemoan not happening. Bravo Lupe Fiasco!

This goes in my book right next to Sinead ripping up PJP2's picture on SNL.

This is a real rock and roll moment. This is real punk. This is for real keeping it real. This is the culture jammed.
