Video: Lupe Fiasco Forcibly Removed Off Stage At Obama Celebration

Lupe got himself into a little trouble last night. He was a scheduled performer at Hamilton Live in Washington DC as part of a pre-inauguration celebration for President Obama. Instead of going through his set as he normally would, Lupe performed the same verse for 30 minutes.

What is worst about the performance of that particular verse is that it explicitly criticises President Obama. The verse off the song 'Words I Never Said' features the lines “Gaza strip was getting bombed, Obama didn’t say shit. That’s why I ain’t vote for him, next one either.”

The organisers of the event were unhappy with Lupe's conduct and sent their security up to remove him from the stage. The video above shows the security interrupting Lupe's performance and escorting him off stage.
