The Name Probably Should Have Been a Clue....
A rapper named Lupe (Loopy) Fiasco (yep) decided to spice things up at one of the Obama inaugurals:
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.More details on his "performance" here:
"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.I suspect that his trutherism and his comments on Limbaugh and Beck didn't get him booted offstage, but his criticism of Obama did. And although I am not a huge fan of the President, I think the song was inappropriate for the time and place. And apparently, the knucklehead just kept repeating that over and over again:
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?”
"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."
