Well, I guess we know who's not being invited to the White House anytime soon. When asked about the political content in his music, rapper Lupe Fiasco told CBS' Shira Lazar, "My fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America." The rapper appeared on the news segment What's Trending, which interviews movers and shakers of social media. Lupe Fiasco currently boasts more than 600,000 followers on Twitter, a platform he often uses to advocate social causes and rally his fans.
"I don't vote. No, I don't vote. I don't get involved in politics. It's meaningless. To be honest," he said. "If I'm going to say I stand behind this person and write on a piece of paper that says, 'Yeah I stand for this person,' then I have to take responsibility for everything he does cause that's just who I am as a human being."
Responses from his followers have ranged from bemusement to support. Many of Lupe's fans are familiar with his anti-establishment beliefs, by way of his lyrics and public comments.
