Lupe Fiasco, one of several outspoken Chi-town bred rappers, has been very vocal about his thoughts on President Obama. Unlike fellow celebrities, such as Beyonce and Morgan Freeman, who have advocated Obama’s reelection, Fiasco is at odds with the president’s military strategy. In a recent radio interview, the “Kick, Push” rapper said, ”On one hand, you have someone who is a great speaker, but kills little children – our president.”

He continued on, saying, “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.” Being well-known for his political stances and ideologies, Fiasco then likened Obama to a murdering drug dealer. “Drug dealers can say the same thing,” said Fiasco. “‘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.”

Ok, Lupe.
