At least I can watch the video and know nothing Lupe says in it will be dumber than this.

He's criticized Obama in his music, so why the hell would you book him for something like this?
That's what I was going to say. He calls Obama a terrorist on his fucking album... Do the people booking these shows not do any research?

His criticisms are very valid. Drone strikes are terrible.

Without watching and hearing what he actually said because my work computer won't load videos ever for some reason, I agree with this.

Isn't what's featured in the video (or some variant) part of the original song anyways? Odd to cut that off, if it's based on that.

That being said, from every interview I've watched and read, Lupe Fiasco's political views are about as sophisticated as a 12-year-old's. I'm sill perplexed as to why everyone on my news feed thinks this guy has some sort of "fresh" view rapping about politics.

Isn't The US known for claiming how "free" their people are supposed to be?

Yep, the government does "claim" that, but the reality is very, very different.

Its kinda scary how Obama is so close to being a dictator. You say one thing about him and even though the crowed loves it just because Obama doesn't like it the guy gets his mic cut and kicked off. Doesnt sound like democracy to me.....just sayin'

Yeah I can't watch videos at work either, but I'm assuming it was something along the lines of what he said om the album and in an interview I read.

Agree to an extent but there is a time and place to appropriately voice ones opinion. This was not one of them but as others of stated he probably should not of been on the bill.

It's the Obama inauguration. So I understand them cutting the chord on any highly opinionated Obama bashes, however that has to be one of the worse books by a PR staff.

Holy lol at your line of reasoning. "Obama doesn't like it…" what a conclusion to make when we haven't any idea if he even heard it. People who make these wild assumptions that the entire country moves and shakes at the whim of the President, whomever he may be at the time, are hilarious.

Edit: This quote was meant for the post he was originally quoted by "theonethingihav"

I picture a member of the Secret Service watching on a hidden camera, and all of a sudden shouting "Mr. President! Lupe Fiasco said something mean!" Hahahahaha.
