Lupe Fiasco reportedly cut a recent Salt Lake City, Utah concert early after objects were thrown at him.
“Safety first,” Fiasco said in a Twitter update following the event on November 24, according to xxlmag.com who reports that the object thrown was a tomato. “Bitch threw some shit. I asked the balcony to come down to the floor. They said fuck me. So, show’s over.”
Fiasco was confronted by a Twitter follower over his use of an insult.
“Never saw you use that word in such a way,” Sana Saeed said in a Twitter reply. “Disappointed.”
“She was a bitch, tho,” he said on Twitter.
Fiasco posted a series of Twitter updates about the incident.
A video of the incident can be viewed below, as posted by Ash G’s YouTube account.
In 2012, Lupe Fiasco discussed the use of the word “bitch” on “Bitch Bad,” which was part of his Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album.
“Bitch bad,” Fiasco says on the hook. “Woman good / Lady better, they misunderstood.”
Fiasco is preparing his new album, Tetsuo & Youth. Recently, Fiasco spoke about the project’s sound.
“It ain’t gonna be a party album,” Fiasco said in an interview with Houston radio station 97.9 The Box. “I did like the first interview for the album I think it was either with Rolling Stone or Billboard and just told them like, you know, on purpose there’s no politics on the record,” said Lupe. “I feel like people—I’ve said what I had to say and people replied how they had to reply. So, now it’s just music…It’s just more just like at a certain point you get tired of it. You know what I’m saying? You get tired of trying to like get people to see things from a different way or a different perspective. And it’s kinda like the lack of response what was more like ‘Oh well, forget it. Let’s just go get money then.’”
