Rapper Lupe Fiasco thrown offstage during pre-inauguration event after anti-Obama rant

Lupe Fiasco

Rapper Lupe Fiasco was thrown offstage and escorted off the premises of a Washington, D.C. concert hall during a pre-inauguration concert Sunday night, after going on an anti-war, anti-Obama rant, according to concertgoers.

Josh Rogin, a reporter with Foreign Policy magazine, tweeted late Sunday, “Lupe Fiasco just got thrown off stage here at the Hamilton Live after he went on an anti-Obama diatribe mid set.”

“So Lupe played one anti-war song for 30 min and said he didn’t vote for Obama,” he continued, ”and eventually was told to move on to the next song…Lupe refused to move to the next song so a team of security guards came on stage and told him to go.”

Another attendee at the StartUp RockOn event tweeted, “Things going terribly wrong at @lupefiasco performance during#SURO. Kicked off stage, bashing obama…”

This isn’t the first time the rapper, born Wasalu Muhammad Jaco, has been vocal about his dislike for the president.

During an interview with CBS in 2011, he called the president a terrorist. Lupe said, “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.”

Lupe has also criticized Obama’s stance on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and has stated that he does not vote in elections because of his anti-establishment views.

StartUp Rock On, the concert’s organizers, claimed shortly after 2:00 a.m. Monday that Lupe “left the stage earlier than we had planned. But Lupe Fiasco was not ‘kicked off stage’ for an ‘anti-Obama rant.’”

“We are staunch supporters of free speech, and free political speech,” the organizers 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.”

  1. Im am Lupe fan because of his stance on politics but he should have never preformed!!! There is time and place for everything you play the same song for 30 mins regardless of its content as a fan i would be pissed!! All he did was embarrass himself and probably loose more fans. Like i said i understand his stand on terrorism just wasn’t the right place.

  2. It’s not a “rant” if it’s pro-Drone Killa, however.

  3. I especially liked the part where the feckless faithful DENIED THEY KICKED HIM OFFSTAGE.

  4. …thst’s right, young man ! Critical thinking is something the united states government doesn’t want you to be doing. like george carlin said, ” the government wants the people to be just
    smart enough to do the paperwork and operate the machines…..it doesn’t want the population smart enough to know how badly they’re being fucked “……if the population can
    look at building 7 as being exploded from preplaced charges, then the population might understand that the twin towers were brought down with government collusion and complicity.
    Gee…building 7 housed alot of CIA financial files..hmmmmmmmmm ?

  5. This is brilliant!
    More rappers and celebrities need to use their fame to wake people up.
