Lupe Fiasco insults Obama during own inauguration performance, calls him warmonger.

Fiasco opened his set with "Words I never Said," his 2011 hit. During the performance, he criticized the president for his silence after recent bombing of the Gaza strip. During the 20 minute rap rant Fiasco continually rhymed, "Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn is a racist, Gaza strip was getting bombed, Obama didn't say s***."
This tweet was followed by two others that read, "So Lupe played one anti-war song for 30 min and said he didn't vote for Obama and eventually was told to move on to the next song." And "Lupe refused to move to the next song so a team of security guards came on stage and told him to go."

It must suck when your own performers don't even like you! Lol!

Would be interesting if

Lupe Fiasco makes a song about Israeli elections and compare them to UK monarchy and US two-party monopoly.

AP just posted some interesting facts about Israeli elections. Out of 5.6mil voters there are 32 political parties running in the elections. Half of them will succeed in taking seats in Israeli congress and quarter of them will share executive power.

Here is the video of his performance.

Lupe made it clear he didn't vote for Obama and will never vote for him. That took courage. I sense a crack in the two party joke of a system. Our illegal, undeclared, wars are going to provide smart people with lots of clarity. Thank you, Lupe.

It must suck..

"It must suck when your own performers don't even like you! Lol!"

I've listened to his music and I've heard his interviews. What he did wasn't popular but he made a bold statement that resounds strongly with many of us.

Who cares if some people didn't "like it" and if you thought it must have sucked because you think his performers didn't like him?

That's very narrow and I'm sure HE knows it was a success which is all that should matter. I wish there were a 100 more like him.

I think the poster was

I think the poster was referring to Obama not being liked by the performers, that's the way I understood it.
