Lupe Fiasco Responds To The Backlash That Followed His Obama Comments, Says He's A "Docile" Critic Of The President
Lupe Fiasco speaks on past comments made about President Barack Obama, reveals the names of the artists on his iPod.
While stopping in his hometown of Chicago, rapper Lupe Fiasco visited Coke Lounge at WGCI for an interview in which he answered various questions from fans. He was of course asked about his recent comments about President Barack Obama to which he replied that compared to the president’s other critics he’s rather docile.
“The biggest terrorist’s in the United States is Barack Obama and the United States government. I got black-balled immediately,” said Lupe. “But the funky part is when I tell people what I’m saying is nothing in comparison to if you wanna listen to The Patriot, it’s a radio station that’s on 24-hours a day, seven-days a week and I’m critical? And it’s not even real; they’re making up all types of craziness…So I’m not worried about that. I think that I’m actually docile in comparison to his true opponents.”
The interview took on a much lighter note as the rapper then went on to rattle off the names of the various artists currently on his iPod which include everyone from the late Fela Kuti to rock group Foo Fighters.
And according to Fake Shore Drive, on top of revealing the artists featured in his iPod playlist Lupe also went on to name MF Doom as his favorite lyricist.
Lupe Fiasco is currently preparing for the September 25 release of his new album Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1.
