Lupe Fiasco Shoots Down Reports Of His Twitter Account Being Taken Over

Lupe Fiasco states that his break from Twitter was brought about so he could focus on making music.

Mere days after it was reported that Chicago emcee Lupe Fiasco was forced to hand over his Twitter account to his management following controversial remarks made in regards to Marxism and its place in today’s society, the rapper has returned to the social networking site to refute those claims.

According to Salon.com, following comments Lupe made in regards to Marxism, a Tweet made from his account on behalf of his management team shared this announcement with Lupe fans: “Gotta love his lively way with twitter but sadly he's gonna be taking a break to focus on other things.”

Despite the announcement from his management team, Lupe returned to Twitter today (May 15) and expressed his confusion in the matter and also stressed that his account wasn’t taken over due to any of his remarks on Marxism and that he’s instead taking time to focus on music.


Lupe later revealed his plans for #PhilosophySunday before again making his exit from the site.

Not one to shy away from sharing his thoughts on current events, Lupe has used Twitter to share his opinion on everything from gun violence in music to President Barack Obama.

    Lupe fiasco needs to have a court-appointed caretaker like Briney Spears did. This guy is not capable of managing his own affairs and making good decisions. He's a little boy while Wayne, Drake, Birdman and Tyga are grown ass men.

      You maybe don't realise that numbers alone doesn't indicate quality it just means your man drake has excelled in gathering as many stupid people as possible under his limp wristed banner that's all. The world is awash with stupid people such as yourself. You simps will be convinced of anything said by anyone who looks the part regardless of what bs they're spinning. Irrelevant is a word you use far too often and without any real consequence. F**k you know what is or isn't relevant? SALES? SALES? Sales at this moment and time are irrelevant if you're concern is artistry. This is beyond the minds of most simpletons(of which there are many). Go put on a Trini James record that seem more your level. Big people talking here move along bwoyface.

      what ever made you think that clown is an urban youth

    • ETK

      damn this nigga supports a rapper purely because he's more successful, yet OUR opinions are shitty. lmfao I can damn sure deny numbers when I'm arguing quality, bro. maybe I prefer a rapper spitting about real world issues over Captain Save-a-Hoe

      Yeah numbers are facts! Facts to how dumbed down our society has become, filled with un-original and irrelevant minds like yours... Tell me why the most famous and successful black man in the urban community in 2013 is half jewish and only speaking of money, girls, and how great he believes he is for those petty reasons... Where as 50 years ago or so the urban community looked up to black people of principle the black panthers... Funny thing you might not know is the Lupe's father and mother have strong connections to them.... But that type of thing has become irrelevant... looks like the higher ups in america are doing well because now the urban youth only finds rappers that make a lot of money and speak about making it, having girls, and guns, and swag with some funny and "hip" wordplay relevant
