Lupe has expressed his displeasure for President Obama numerous times in many interviews. He’s even gone as far to say he will not exercise his right to vote due to his lack of faith in our Government. Hughley expressed his views on the matter and feels his decision is dangerous.
In a recent interview Hughley was quoted as saying “He’s bright as hell, but dumb in the weight of the world,” continuing with “Young black men are going to listen to him. They are the ones who have decisions made for them, [decisions] that they are not even involved in, which is silly to me. You can’t go through life and not be a participant, and hope things work out for your benefit. When you vote or not vote, you are saying yes or no.”
“They want to raise the age of social security from 65 to 68…Black men die at 67. Lupe Fiasco forgets that he’s going to be an old man when he’s looking for a social security check, and he dies right after he gets it.”
Despite his position, Lupe acknowledged that his views are flawed. During a recent performance he stated, “I’m far from being a knowledgeable and wise young man as well,” continuing with “I’m somewhere in the middle. I ain’t no saint either.”
This isn’t the first time Lupe’s been called out on his political views. Just last year he appeared on the Bill O’Reilly Show in response to calling President Barack Obama a terrorist. During the interview, O’Reilly exposes Lupe’s ignorance numerous times.
It’s clear the rapper wants to maintain a political position on the status of our country, but lacks the knowledge to back up his views. Perhaps a little more research can educate himself and the fans who listen to him.
