  • Lupe Fiasco votingHuman rights activist and Hip-Hop artist, Lupe Fiasco, was asked to leave the stage during his performance at an inauguration party in Washington, D.C. on Sunday, reports Politico.com.

    For about 40 minutes, the outspoken Obama critic repeated lyrics from his controversial song, “Words I Never Said,” which include lyrics sharply rebuking the president for his support of Israel’s violent military occupation of Palestine:

    “Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist,” Lupe rapped. “Gaza Strip was getting bombed, Obama didn’t say s—t. That’s why I ain’t vote for him, next one either.”

    Foreign Policy reporter, Josh Rogin, shared the unexpected development in real time on Twitter:

    Though HyperVocal and StartUp Rock On, the organizers of the event, initially voiced disappointment that Lupe chose their event to make a political statement, they later insisted that he “was NOT kicked off stage for an anti-Obama rant.”
