While speaking about his politically-charged single, “Words I Never Said,” off his latest album Lasers during a recent interview with CBS News, Lupe Fiasco openly criticized President Obama, calling him the “biggest terrorist.”
“I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s causing the other forms of terrorism,” the Chicago-born artist said about the single’s politically-charged lyrics. “The root cause of the terrorism is the stuff that you as a government allow to happen and the foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists.”
The track, which features hook-phenom Skylar Grey, addresses the ongoing war on terrorism and its effects on American youth. “Gaza Strip was gettin’ bombed/Obama didn’t say shit/That’s why I ain’t vote for ’em/Next one either, I’m a part of the problem/The problem is I’m peaceful…” Fiasco raps.
The outspoken and socially-conscious MC also made it clear that he doesn’t vote because he thinks it “meaningless.” And when questioned about what he thinks if no one voted he responded, “Who knows. Let’s try it out.” —Amber McKynzie
