1. Lupe Fiasco Booted From Stage at Pre-Inauguration Concert (VIDEO).


    On the eve of President Barack Obama 's 2nd term inauguration, Lupe Fiasco reportedly stirred controversy at the StartUp RockOn concert event last night in Washington D.C. when he was removed from the stage by security while performing his song "Words I Never Said." The song features lyrics that critique the Obama administration's use of drones attacks in the Middle East ("Gaza strip was getting bombed, Obama didn’t say shit/That's why I ain't vote for him, next one either"). Fiasco's performance of this single song at the pre-inauguration celebration reportedly lasted in excess of 30 minutes.

    In a statement in response to the incident, Hypervocal - co-founder of StartUp RockOn - cited Fiasco's musically self-indulgent performance as the reason for his removal - not the content of his material.

    Hypervocal: "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."

      little bitch showing ZERO respect. Obama has dealt with so much, and CREATED a spot for him in history. Lupe wears 90's 90210 sunglasses and self destructs. Why the fuck did he even agree to play the damn thing. Plus, dude has beef with Pete Rock???? whaaaa...whack

      Good for Lupe. He's 100% correct. Obama ran his first campaign on an anti-war platform, yet once elected has followed pretty much the same foreign policy as his awful predecessor. O-bomb-ya has increased the use of drone bombings, which are less efficient at killing their actual targets and have a higher rate of innocent civilians killed. This is exactly the thing he campaigned against. If the same actions were performed by Dubya or any other republican, Democrats would be up in arms. But the president has a (D) next to his name, so I guess military intervention and drone attacks are ok again. Both parties suck. Props to Lupe for standing up for what he believes in.
