Lupe Fiasco Thrown Off Stage For Going On Anti-Obama Rant At Inauguration Party (Video)

I don't know whether to blame Lupe for this or blame the person who booked him to perform. Lupe Fiasco has been pretty vocal on his political views, expressing disappointment in Barack Obama's administration so I'm not sure why it comes to any surprise that when he was booked to perform at an Inauguration event he would be some type of liability.

Essentially the timeline went as followed. Lupe Fiasco was booked to perform at the Hamilton Live in DC for the Inauguration festivities. Some are saying this was a FOX News event, I can't say for sure. Sources say Lupe Fiasco played 1 anti-war song for 30 minutes, refusing to move on to the next song. That's when he went on his anti-Obama rant and was eventually removed from the stage by security. 

Earth to Lupe - no one, and I mean NO ONE wants to hear you go on an anti-Obama rant at an inauguration party. NO ONE! Secondly, no one, and I do mean NO ONE, wants to hear you run back your music for 30 minutes. The blame has to be placed on whoever booked who they thought the token political black guy was, because they missed the mark on this one. Then you have to blame Lupe for not doing what he was paid to do, perform.

Check out the video below:

Is Lupe losing it or is he just expressing free speech? What are your thoughts?

He spoke his mind . I share his feelings , but  theres a time and a place for everything . I think it was tacky timing . I also think that Lupe knew exactly what he was doing .
