Lupe Fiasco set off a firestorm of controversy last week when during an interview he called President Obama a terrorist. Fiasco has since said won't back down from his comments.
Mobb Deep rapper Prodigy has chimed in to say he agrees with Lupe's comments. In an interview with HipHopDX, P explains why.
"I would have to agree with him [Lupe]," Prodigy said. "Most of these politicians and these government officials…most of them are the real terrorists."
Prodigy has talked a lot in the past on songs like "Illuminati" and "Real Power Is People" about the government being crooked, so his support of Lupe should come as no surprise.
The rapper just finished a three year prison sentence for gun charges in March. P said he kept up to speed on world politics, and President Obama in particular while locked up.
"Yeah, I was definitely checking [Obama] out and seeing what he was doing and what he was about," he said. "But I already knew ahead of time – I’ve been studying all that type of stuff since like 15,16 years old, so… You can’t pull the wool over my eyes. I already know what time it is. There’s nothing you can say to confuse me about any of that type of stuff. I know it’s all a game that they’re playing. It’s all a facade,"
