Grammy-winning rapper Lupe Fiasco has fired back at recent comments made by comedian D.L. Hughley over his resistance to take part in the upcoming presidential election.
Fiasco resorted to his Twitter page and attempted to explain why President Obama needs key factors bigger than hip-hop support to succeed in the upcoming election.
“Obama need swing states and white people not radical rappers kissing his ass to win this election..,’ he tweeted September 17th.
“If y’all stop bringing it to me I won’t answer and y’all can be happy with y’all way of thinking and I can be happy with mine.. #LeeMeAlone”
“I vote for Grace Lee Boggs….put her on the ballot and i’d finance the campaign my d*mn self @realdlhughley do u even know who she is???”
“Better yet @RealDLHughley you put up 50k and I’ll put up 50k and let’s flesh out some programs for rural & inner city youths our d*mn selves”
“And we aint got to wait till November or be part of a party to do that…what u think brother? F*ck all this talk let’s get it in my n*gga..” (Lupe Fiasco’s Twitter)
Last week, D.L. questioned Fiasco’s lack of interest in voting and the negative impact it could have on potential voters.
“He’s bright as h*ll, but dumb in the weight of the world,” Hughley said in an interview. “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 before he gets it!”
I see said the blind man. And now…
I want Lupe to know that bad politicians are sent to Washington by good people who don’t vote.
