Lupe Fiasco Addresses Faith, Criticism Of President Obama In Katie Couric Interview

Lupe Fiasco speaks with katie Couric about his "Words I Never Said" line about President Obama.

Lupe Fiasco is slated to appear in an interview with Katie Couric tomorrow (June 11), according to Yahoo

Today (June 10), a portion of the interview was released. In the clip, Fiasco is asked about his faith and how it may interfere or be challenged by being a rapper. 

"We're human," Fiasco says when asked about being Muslim. "We have faults. We make mistakes. That's what religion is for, to help you correct your mistakes." 

In the interview, Fiasco is also asked about his criticism of President Obama. "I had people threaten me," he says of his comment about President Obama on "Word I Never Said."

In June 2011, Fiasco spoke about his criticism of Obama, as well“To put it into context, I was asked about a song I did called ‘Words I Never Said,’ which addresses the war on terrorism,” Lupe said at the time. “So the statement that I made, which was ‘I believe that the biggest terrorist is Obama and the United States of America and its foreign policy,’ that was what the whole context of everything was. And there’s really just an expression of me trying to understand, critically, the society.”

    Lupe is a real MF. You can tell that this man is a thinker. He's not a brainwashed sheep like 95% of you mfs

  • the real

    regardless of whether you agree with his views or not, lupe's one of the few rappers in mainstream hip hop actually saying something. gotta respect that.

      Only black performer criticizing Obama, that's for sure. Paul Mooney's still sitting in the dark trying to figure out what went wrong.

    I like Lupe. But you can't diss Obama for not taking a stand when you wouldn't even stand up to your label (i.e. Lasers)

  • Anonymous

    It doesn't matter what Obama's foreign policy or anything is. He is black and that is why we voted him for President and this is why he should be the 5th president added to Mount Rushmore.
