Lupe Fiasco Kicked Off The Stage At Pre-Inauguration Concert After Performing Anti-Obama Song For 30 Minutes Straight [Video]


Video After The Jump


Lupe Fiasco was the headliner last night at the StartUp RockOn Inauguration Celebration at Washington's Hamilton Live. His set ended sooner than expected after he said he didn't vote for Obama and performed the first verse of his anti-Obama song "Words I Never Said" for 30 minutes straight.


I really think the war on terror is a bunch of bullsh*t

Just a poor excuse for you to use up all your bullets
How much money does it take to really make a full clip
9/11 building 7 did they really pull it
Uhh, And a bunch of other cover ups
Your childs future was the first to go with budget cuts
If you think that hurts then, wait here comes the uppercut
The school was garbage in the first place, that's on the up and up
Keep you at the bottom but tease you with the uppercrust
You get it then they move it so you never keeping up enough
If you turn on TV all you see’s a bunch of “what the fucks”
Dude is dating so and so blabbering bout such and such
And that ain't Jersey Shore, homie that's the news
And these the same people that supposed to be telling us the truth
Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist
Gaza strip was getting bombed, Obama didn’t say sh*t
That's why I ain't vote for him, next one either
I’ma part of the problem, my problem is I’m peaceful
And I believe in the people.



Organizers cut off the Chicago rapper's mic, but he continued to rap for another 5-10 minutes before being escorted off the stage.


Lupe has not made it a secret that he isn't a fan of Obama's, so his choice as headliner for the event was an odd one to say the least. In 2011, Fiasco called Obama "the biggest terrorist . . . in the United States of America,"

"Lupe Fiasco just got thrown off stage here at the Hamilton Live after he went on an anti-Obama diatribe mid set," journalist Josh Rogin, who was at the event wrote on Twitter. "So Lupe played one anti-war song for 30 min and said he didn't vote for Obama and eventually was told to move on to the next song. Lupe refused to move to the next song so a team of security guards came on stage and told him to go."


Hypervocal organized the event and issued a statement saying Lupe was not kicked off the stage for his anti-Obama views.


We are staunch supporters of free speech, and free political speech. This was not about his opinions. Instead, after a bizarrely repetitive, jarring performance that left the crowd vocally dissatisfied, organizers decided to move on to the next act.

(If you are like me you can tell because grammatical errors drive you nuts, and you’ll delete and re-post your s*** repeatedly until you are happy with the way it comes out.)@Bezel Good to know you are listening and open to learning new things. I appreciate that you would admit that too; I'll tell you exactly why it's good, and all too rare to find in these times. Too many people are scared to say they don't know. They want to pretend they know everything, and the only ones who speak are the f***** a*******. People are quick to label you something. They will claim treason or call you a terrorist if you should say anything negative about the U.S. our Federal Government. God forbid you express too many unfavorable points of view. "You need to see a psychologist" or some other s*** to dissuade you. Trust me it’s been done to be time and time again. I know when it's going to happen usually by now, and I'm strangely proud of that I guess. Aaron McGruder is so on point with Huey you have no idea. It used to be honorable to not know, as it showed the sincerity in one's search for truth. Instead we have become a nation of private email blasts, FB jokes and stupid other b*******. N***** be like: is funny as hell don't get me wrong, but can a teen or young adult try to be intelligent sometimes? Is it too much for this site? Not that I care, just wondering in my head. Look up the ~10 minute video on YouTube entitled: Amazing Speeches- JFK + MLK = Ron Paul and you will understand exactly why I’m saying that. I will talk forever as long as I know even one person is listening. One man can change the world, unless you perceive Malcolm X, Einstein, 2Pac and MLK Jr as failed attempts. I learned a lot of what I learned by listening, asking and often times challenging the present views we allegedly accept today. @MGODO I understand your dislike for Obama but don’t give him any excuse to do what he is doing today. The truth of the matter is you have to be a total narcissist to be in the presidential spotlight of the USA. He is the most powerful man in the world so don’t get it f***** up. His interests have changed from the hope and peace he preached in 2008 to the draconian policies and executive orders he has set in place already. He is not completely one sided and I’ll explain it best like this. He is still a family man, still wants to be loved by the public and probably believes that much of what he has done is in this country’s best interest. That is unfortunately not the case. For example he claimed to care about food-born-illness and yet ignored the Farm Bill (supposedly a BFD) for his first four years as president. Now he does want, and has tried, to shut Guantanamo bay, but he can’t because of the system just like you said. This is to his and the American taxpayers’ dismay. Nothing good ever comes from that place. In 2007, Sufyan Ben Qumu was released from Gitmo and turned over to Gaddafi on the condition that he be kept in prison in Libya. In 2010 Gaddafi released this former al-Qaeda terrorist, along with 37 other prisoners, to celebrate his 41st year in power. Guess who ended up leading the mobs on the anniversary of 9/11 2012… Sufyan Ben Qumu. As a result we lost UN Ambassador John Christopher Stevens, the first US Ambassador to be killed by violence overseas since 1979, as well as three other Americans on that day. Obama and his camp chose to lie to the American public for 14 days after, saying it` was some Muslim video Americans made that sparked the riot. No (admittedly) not true at all; it was NATO’s illegal bombing of Libya and the murder of Gaddafi for his Oil and “Gold!” that brought on the riots that day. This was no flash mob as Americans were lead to believe, nor was it a 'spontaneous' act. In fact Obama reportedly watched it all go down via two drone feeds, and refused to send help even though three requests had been made. This happened at night in Libya which means he watched it all day in Washington. He didn’t want to admit s*** was f***** up, partly due to his upcoming presidential campaign for re-election, and also his Art of War strategies that keep the American public so clueless. At first I didn’t know any better. I was like why the hell are all these stupid Americans making movies to be disrespectful, and why the hell do all these stupid Muslims in other countries get so upset about it anyway. I even had a work contact from Egypt who is in the Arabic league of states publicly tell me after hurricane Sandy that “what happened in the US was a punishment from god for the mockery on Islam religion and for creating a filthy stupid disgusting video on our profit Mohamed” and that it “was the payback and the punishment for everything.” He said “good job, please continue doing mockery stuff and see the what is gonna happen next time.” I was so pissed off I responded with something I had recently read, asking “are all Americans targets for anyone's actions and beliefs towards Muslims? This makes no sense to me at all. Because some terrorists are Muslim, are we to all hate Muslims and punish any that we can find for other's actions? I think not, so why isn't it the same for Americans?” I told him he was “really a disgrace to Islam and I don’t think you understand Islam at all.” We apologized for acting so stupid on Thanksgiving day, what do you know something to actually be thankful for on that day; usually my mind floods with the images massacres, smallpox blankets, the trail of tears aka the 500 year holocaust. Anyway when he apologized for saying those things to me he said “you are smarter than me.” At first I thought he meant my response was just admirable, but then I suddenly realized how f***** up this whole s*** really is. This lie was not only spread throughout the mainstream media in America; this lie was also somehow spread throughout the Muslim mainstream as well, in other f****** countries. We are hated because they paint us this way, f***** crazy yo, I probably don’t even know the extent they can go to manipulate the entire world in such a way, and for something so simple as their own small personal gain. F*** Obama if he is so afraid of being shot he should have never accepted the job to “serve the people”, “we the people.” We are dealing with forces that are so far beyond the realm we perceive and it’s probably good if those secrets stay that way. Maybe it will die with them someday. Whatever point is don’t get mad at yourself if you ever get caught up in the b*******. Always remember to have fun. Bang on the system if you want too, but there is no point to living if you can’t enjoy it too. We’re all technically Homo sapiens anyway, no difference. The differences they can prove are all shallow and superficial and only accounts for <6% of our DNA. The whole world is free to fall in love, and have children together too. There really is “no scientific evidence” to back the “genetic differences” and “ethnic superiority” claims you today. Religion is so hypocritical but don’t hate the people. We should all treat each other with love and respect, for humanity, not some God we think is going to come and save the world someday. Old people are scared of what’s happening, because they lived through WWII and Vietnam. The Federal reserve funds all the money we need to develop technology, look at the hundreds of good drones we’ve built as evidence of that. Watch out for HAARP and FIPA though that s*** should not be played with in such a way. I think the UN signed a treaty to not manipulate the weather back in the 70’s, so imagine how far we’ve come on that s***. The hope I see is that the youth love technology, and as always, don’t see why they should be afraid. This is partly good because eit enable you to believe in your own visions for the future. Just remember to always do things the appropriate way. It’s okay to change the constitution if we gop through all the appropriate procedures. It is really an amazing document and a big shame it is being discarded by our politicians in such a way. You should lead us all into a generation of peace and harmony, because power corrupts everybody, look at history if you don’t believe me. The people on this planet have never been so connected like we are today. Because of the internet, smartphones and social media outlets we are witnessing something new for the first time, ever, in history, we see humanity is communicating. This scares many of the governments and so you see internet censorship, but that will never work. Look at China, and how Hong Kong works with Google to provide proxies for the people anyway. You should all follow anonymous on twitter btw they are f****** awesome: @YourAnonNews I think it’s funny to joke and play with stupid n***** online too, but we should all be conscious of where people live and what they might be going through in the country they live. We are often the first contact that kids from other countries have with America, and I already explained the enemy we are working with. I’m sure the images are not painted well on purpose. I don’t mean the Big 6 either, because it’s stupid to vilify a giant machine with no specific purpose. Don’t complain until you know what you are saying. It’s not going to kill you, and it’s definitely not gay to be nice, but so the f*** what if you think it is anyway. I know who I am so why does it matter what anyone calls me. It’s gay to be gay, so take a d*** up your a** if you hate faggots, probably means you are one too. Just sayin... Back to my point, I think it’s estimated to be about 2 billion people currently online today, and anticipated to be around 5 billion by 2015. I can’t remember the exact numbers but I saw it on a TED video not too long ago. Race has been a tool of oppression throughout history, used by various “governments” and “rulers” of the day to coerce its people and separate them from other cultures and groups. It makes it easier to kill you if I think you are born evil and I have some divine purpose in life. How many people you know in America feel comfortable moving out to the Middle East? Why? Why is it okay for Israel to ban Christmas trees while Muslim’s have the biggest Christmas tree on display. Have you ever seen Abu Dhabi or Dubai? Do you really believe that the entire country of Iran is totally evil? Have you ever been to Iran, and how many Iranians do you actually know? I learned so much from just listening to people from all over the world. I traveled and went on social media and listened to what people had to say. Don't ever let anyone tell you this country isn't great. It's just the politics that have been corrupted and the secret organizations that operate inside them have plenty of tricks to distract you. The reason so many are feeling threatened with the loss of freedom and liberty today is because we have junked the Constitution and tyranny won't be far behind. The youth are going to change things for the better that I know, but unfortunately we are handing you guys such a mess it’s going to take a village to accomplish what we all really want. We will never be able to fix the mistakes that have and continue to be made unless you guys are aware of history, why the constitution was created, what the cold war represented, when the neoconservative party begin, why the OPEC countries of the world all lied about the amount of oil in their reserves, what that means to all countries, especially the U.S. and what it is that we are really at war for (1% takes up 33% of the nation’s wealth), etc. etc. etc. Don't get too caught up in this all at once though because it is f****** depressing. I’ve talked with people from all over the world to come to these conclusions i.e. to name a few Europe, Iran, Germany, Pakistan, UAE, the Russian Federation, the DR and Haiti, Nigeria, Australia and New Zealand (I love you kiwis). Travel and see the world as much as possible it’s f****** great. I don’t think I am better or worse than any of you on here, but I put the time in to learn so stfu and listen b******. I’m spending this time to educate you on some serious s***. Copy it down and study it slowly, especially that list I posted the last time. What good is all this s*** going to be if it dies with me. Christ I’m not even sure why someone hasn’t killed me yet. I challenged cops, military, army and cia intelligence with questions that often lead to debates, sometimes ugly arguments ensued, and that isn’t good for anybody, especially wasn’t a very safe feeling foe me if you know what I’m saying. One of them still hates me over a drone discussion to this day. Just looking for the truth can be a hell of a job to undertake. I’ve also talked with intelligence from outside countries to. Germany was my favorite though. They put me on to Peak Oil and OPEC and the US/UK’s real aim in all this. Watch the prize – 8 part series on PBS on YouTube now. Very boring but real learning usually is. Stic-man from dead prez said it best: after the pain comes success, go through it, you’ll be okay, some of you are too soft too spoiled, every time you got in trouble someone got you out of it. He is 100% correct, and I can stress enough the importance of who we let lead. I want to say Libertarian party but they are isolationists and I like my iPad mini. Still, government today is b*******, so whatever your choice, we need more parties quick, and you all need to f***** vote. Learn how to sign a petition, write a letter to the President, call your state representative and urge him on to go a certain way for on a specific bill. Know your rights, this is a academic world stuff I’m giving you here. I never claim to know s*** but I never back down or run away from debate. It is good for the soul and I like to learn just as much as I teach. it would be so much better for you if you apply it and take it even further than me. I’m still learning from Tupac Amaru Shakur’s song Changes so trust me learning is never-ending. Did anyone ever get the message out of that song btw, pac was so f***** ahead of his time, saying r.i.p. just makes me want to kill everybody, but I’m trying to do this s*** peacefully, like Lupe, if you really listen to him you would know that. How the f*** you gonna hate on a Black Panther what the hell is wrong with you. And his music does not suck, or maybe you all have an album out I don’t know about. N**** please shut the f*** up. Wikipedia Lupe Fiasco’s a** for starters. Yes I said Wikipedia! Universities don’t want to see you site that on a paper, partly because it’s too easy, and partly because it’s not all proven, but that’s <1%, and it gives it a unique meaning. It is now the biggest and most comprehensive encyclopedia ever assembled, thanks Jimmy Wales. Learn as much from it as you can before they start to censor it too. Free and open internet is most important. It was designed so that the world would communicate in this fashion, so don’t forget what a gift it is too. Africa is starving people so wake up and let’s try to help nations develop already. All life has value. Peace. Oh and one more thing I need to add; guy fawkes this whole m************ thing if that’s what it comes down aboutathing dontworry@

Obama is just a puppet and is scared because he knows that if he doesn't do what they tell him to do, they will assassinate him like they did kennedy. Look it up!!!!!!

Comment by Don't Worry on January 22, 2013 at 4:27am
Don't waste your time arguing with fools. Say what you need to say and let them continue to act foolishly if they choose. Some people on here are trying to be heard, and that's cool. Some people on here just want to be rude and have fun, and that's cool too. Interesting dynamics I must say. Just don't judge someone so quickly. Jung's The Psychology of the Transference is a great book if you guys ever want to read something interesting. I don't prefer all of the mean things you guys say to each other, I think that would be called projection if you ever understand that psychological concept. Peace people of the world, god people in America got your back, don't worry about the rest of the ignoramuses here, they will wake up soon I'm hoping. word. The Patriot Act, HR-347, NDAA 2013, The 2nd Amendment of the Constitution - Gun Control and Obama's executive order, Drone Policy, War Crimes, Peak Oil, Calgary Tar Sands, TransCanada and the Keystone XL Pipeline Project (Susan Rice invested in it)- check out what's going on in Nebraska and Texas, 2012 'May Day' Protests From Coast to Coast, Anonymous = Awesome, Dead Prez - Information Age .. remember Know Your Enemy, OWS - Taken over for political agendas instead of philosophical movement for political change, Canada's government is on some Nazi s*** right now, Trans-Afghanistan pipeline Unocal - done by 2014, Martin Luther King Jr., "The Drum Major Instinct" Sermon - YouTube, Malcolm X - know your African name and not your slave name, British Empire, "On her dominions the sun never sets", Say it again OPEC Countries, X-47B, DARPA, Muammar Gaddafi Libya - NATO bombed under UN authority? Congress never approved it, Bush SR. Iraq, Clinton Iraq Afghanistan and Sudan - all under cover by Monica - & the father of Haiti my a**, Red Cross no money ever makes it -criminals, Sandy NY/NJ not a red state who cares, benghazzi war crimes & Patraeus cover up, Financiers, You don't have to declare war anymore, NeoCons, Guitmo, Drones over commercial airspace U.S 2015, U.S. foreign policy = Overthrow OPEC countries, Iran not about Israel, Israel is full of good people but government is corrupt everywhere, They treat Palestinians like less than s***, Iran to US = OPEC #2 AKA Persian Gulf, Stop acting hard and wake up real s*** is happening while you think of something clever to say next. Who would invite Lupe knowing what he stands for to this event? Lupe is telling you truth his father was a black panther grew up in Chicago projects - that's why he skated by the way to get away from the violence, You little p****** are soft compared to him so shut the f*** up, Damian Marley and Nas - Patience - Nah Mean - Distant Relatives, Nas N.i.g.g.e.r. song on YouTube. You think Lupe cares about publicity? so stupid, He i s doing this so people wake up. People be careful government is on social sites trying to make you think certain things, posing as hard-a** kids - looking more like dumbass intelligence every minute wen you know the truth, 2Pac - take the o out of good you get GOD add a d to evil you get the DEVIL. Huey Percy Newton, Black Panther Party - The FBI began COINTELPRO—short for Counterintelligence - KKK - Assassinations, Mossad Spies in Pentagon, Jewish Neocons Wolfowitz Perle Feith, History of Hamas - electronic intifada, Somalia: U.S. Recognition of Govt Creates Political Storm in Somaliland 21 JANUARY 2013, I know good music too dumbass DOOM P.U.T.S. Yeasayer Radiohead AZ Tribe Beastie Boys RIP-Adam Wagon Christ-Cheese Tracks SF-NYC Jersey House Music Newark Joe Budden Mood Musik Loose Change Lupe - Enemy of the state & Friend of the people. Do your homework little boys and girls stop filling up the rest of our minds with trash talk and nothing to back it up. Audit the Fed. Get ready for the Revolution, M********* that sellout white house n***** - ask what Malcolm X thinks of field and house n****** - two very different people, Jay-Z is cool just playing a part, Big Banks- Oil Gas and Energy- now UK Department of Energy and Climate Change, Wall Street Big Bank criminals = PUBLIC ENEMY NUMBER 1%
