Rapper Lupe Fiasco thrown offstage during inauguration event after anti-Obama rant.

The rapper Lupe Fiasco was escorted off the stage at an unofficial inaugural ball in Washington, last night.


The Grammy-nominated rapper stayed on the anti-war song "Words I Never Said" for 30 minutes. Video posted by Now This News shows Fiasco dropping lines critical of President Obama, before the lights go off and men in black suits escort him off the stage.


"Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist," he raps. "Gaza Strip was getting bombed, Obama didn't say shit. That's why I ain't vote for him, next one either. I'm a part of the problem; my problem is I'm peaceful."


This isn’t the first time the rapper, born Wasalu Muhammad Jaco, has been vocal about his dislike for the president.


During an interview with CBS in 2011, he called the president a terrorist. Lupe said, “My fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama and the United States of America. I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s actually causing the other forms of terrorism.”


“You know, the root cause of terrorism is the stuff the U.S. government allows to happen. The foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists.”

Lupe has also criticized Obama’s stance on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and has stated that he does not vote in elections because of his anti-establishment views.


“One hand, you have someone who is a great speaker, but kills little children—our president,” Lupe told Philadelphia’s Power 99. “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.


“Drug dealers can say the same thing, Lupe continued. “‘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.”
