We all know and love Lupe Fiasco for his no holds bar, real and honest approach to music, interviews and life in general. And when it comes to politics, the Chicago native rapper is never one to hold back and mince his words. In a recent interview, Lupe called President Barack Obama the “biggest terrorist” of them all.
“In my fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America,” the outspoken lyricist told CBS News’ What’s Trending.
“For me, I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s actually causing the other forms of terrorism. The root cause of the terrorism is the stuff that you as a government allow to happen and the foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists. And it’s easy for us because it’s really just some oil, which we can really get on our own.”
Lupe, who did not vote in the last presidential election, also revealed he wont be voting at next years general election either: “I don’t vote. I don’t get involved in the political process because it’s meaningless, to be honest. I’m a real big believer if I’m gonna vouch for someone, then I’m gonna stand behind everything that they do,” he explained. “So politicians aren’t gonna do that because I don’t want you to bomb some village in the middle of nowhere.”
The reporter then asked him what would happen if no one voted, to which he replied, “Who knows. Let’s try it out and see what happens.”
This isn’t the first time Lupe has expressed his dislike towards the president. On his politically-charged “Lasers” single, the 29-year-old wordsmith really lets rip at Obama…
And one more note, if you haven’t already got Lupe’s latest album, Lasers, you should check out – it’s pretty dope!
