Lupe Fiasco Talks Political Corruption & Budget Cuts

Posted By on April 13, 2011

     After releasing his new politic-filled "Words I Never Said" track, Lupe Fiasco continued to detail his opinions on the country's policys and the expected upcoming federal budget cuts. Beyond explaining his lines about the Middle East on "Words I Never Said," Lupe told DJ Whoo Kid and Ben Lyons about the over-discussed choice he made to not shake the president's hand during their last meeting.

“Actions speak louder than words,” Lupe explained. “I always revert back to that Outkast [‘Aquemeni’] when Andre asked, ‘Is every nigga with dreads for the cause / Is every nigga with golds for the fall / Naw /So don’t get caught up in appearance…”

     Lupe says that just because President Obama is black, it doesn't change the fact that he's the leader of what Lupe says is “the most corrupt regime on the planet.” Lupe explains that he doesn't have a problem with the president but rather the entire political system…

“We have a government that’s catered toward the corporate forces,” Lupe added. “You gonna see that over the next two years while [Obama’s] still gonna be in office. There are things going on right now that are going to roll out in the next two years. Services for the people will be eliminated for the sake of kowtowing to some corporate interests, insurance lobbyists and big farms.”
