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.”
