As Lupe Fiasco has conducted his media rounds in preparation for Food & Liquor 2: Great American Rap Album, Part 1, he has issued a slew of controversial statements, calling “ninety-seven percent of Hip Hop is terrible.”
In an interview with Philadelphia’s Power 99 FM’s Mina SayWhat, Lupe revisited criticisms that he had of President Barack Obama last year: “One hand, you have someone who is a great speaker, but kills little children – our president.”
“I’m not talking about an accident,” continued Lupe. “I’m talking about ordering a drone attack. Ordering drone attacks that go and kill mothers, innocent bystanders, children. Militants too, but the collateral damage. You’re responsible for that, too.”
Lupe’s was questioned about whether he thought Obama’s intentions were to kill innocents. “Drug dealer can say the same thing,” countered the Chicago emcee. “I didn’t mean to kill all the people in the restaurant. I was just trying to get that one dude who killed my cousin. Just so happened that that little girl was there. Same thing.”
In 2011, Lupe called Obama “the biggest terrorist,” drawing criticism from Bill O’Reilly and others.
