Lupe Fiasco Removed From Stage After Making Anti-Obama Comments

Lupe Fiasco ruffles feathers in Washington, D.C. as he is removed from the stage.

Lupe Fiasco was removed from the stage during a performance at Hamilton Live in Washington, D.C. on Sunday (January 20) night.

The rapper was removed after performing an anti-war song for 30 minutes, and stating that he did not vote for President Barack Obama in the recent November election. He was reportedly booked to perform as part of a celebration for Obama's inauguration, which takes place on Monday (January 21).

After the performance and anti-Obama remarks, Lupe was asked by security to leave after refusing to move on to a new song.

Below are tweets from Foreign Policy's Josh Rogin, who was present at the show (spotted at Complex):

Lupe's stance on Obama is nothing new, as the rapper has criticized the President numerous times in the past.
