Video: Lupe Fiasco Banned From Obama Inauguration Party During His Performance For Dissing Obama

· January 21, 2013

Lupe Fiasco’s political views got him booted from his own show Sunday (Jan. 20). The Chicago native went on an anti-Obama rant, and reportedly played music sharing said views for 30 minutes. When he refused to go on to another song, security kicked him off stage.

Fiasco was performing at the Hamilton in Washington D.C. just ahead of President Obama’s inauguration festivities to be held tomorrow.

According to reporter Josh Rogin, things quickly went left (no pun) for the rap star.

“Lupe Fiasco just got thrown off stage here at the Hamilton Live after he went on an anti-Obama diatribe mid set,” Rogan tweeted. “So Lupe played one anti-war song for 30 min and said he didn’t vote for Obama 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.”

    Some of those people bopping there heads probably didn’t hear everything he said. Just going along with the flow like of these simple minded people that’s listening to trash music. I know he was anti Obama when I seen that Bill O Riley interview a couple of years ago. If you ass is anti Obama then why did he even perform inauguration party?

    You think he give a fuq about getting kicked out? He got his point across and his voice was heard. Too many n1ggas scared of consequences that come with being a rebel. Stay in line then.

        @1luv  @MoorFedayeen Says who? Him or me? Lupe has a cause and he makes quite a bit of money doing so and inspires many people. I think he’s doing very well. He’s respected.

          @MoorFedayeen Yea but what he did was more like some hater sh!t trying to rain down on a parade. That was a celebration, you don’t see any Republicans going to these parties trying to crash it.
