Last night at President Obama’s inaugural celebration, the show did not go on as following his performance of “Words I never said”, where Lupe voiced criticism of Obama and his government. Allegedly he was kicked off for these lyrics but the event organizers have since refuted the claim stating:
StartUp RockOn is all about startups helping startups. At Sunday night’s Inauguration Celebration at the Hamilton Live, organizers set out to honor innovative visionaries with grants, accolades and a party worthy of the success we achieved at the RNC and DNC this summer.
Lupe Fiasco performed at this private event, and as you may have read, he left the stage earlier than we had planned. But Lupe Fiasco was not “kicked off stage” for an “anti-Obama rant.” We are staunch supporters of free speech, and free political speech. This was not about his opinions. Instead, after a bizarrely repetitive, jarring performance that left the crowd vocally dissatisfied, organizers decided to move on to the next act.
The party continued as planned, and we celebrated the announcement of CodeNow’s winning the Grant Challenge. CodeNow is a non-profit startup based in Washington DC that teaches “underrepresented high school students basic skills in computer programming.
It seems as tho Mr. FNF is going in a different direction musically after revealing he is scrapping his upcoming album, “Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 2″ in favour of a new album. Right after that he deleted his twitter after leaving the message below. I only hope it’s not another label dispute. #FreeLupe
Hello. A decision has been made that the project titled “F&L2 Part 2″ will be summarily cancelled for public release in 2013. The title/concept for Lupe’s 2013 release will be revealed later this year. The LF twitter will be closed until that time
Congrats Abel! After the weekend put together three of his previously free released mixtapes into a compilation album with three new songs and some remastered oldies, he has hit over 500k just 2 months later. Now that he has proven he can sell, when will be getting some new original music? Maybe the answer lies in this picture Not bad for some kid out of Toronto. Get the “Trilogy” here
