Hot to trot hip hop superstar Lupe Fiasco has declared US President Barack Obama a terrorist. He says that he believes that US foreign policy is causing more problems than it is solving and that he believes “To me the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America.” That’s a pretty big call from one of the most intelligent and well educated hip hop stars in the world, and it should probably put Obama on notice that someone like Fiasco is on his case.
Fiasco, who shares the same hometown, Chicago, with the US President, says “The root cause of terrorists is the stuff the U.S. government allows to happen. The foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists. I don’t want you to bomb some village in the middle of nowhere.”
He’s adamant that Obama is a symptom of the problem and that he’s not the solution to the issues besetting the country at the moment. Interviewed on the CBS News show What’s Trending With Shiral Laza, he didn’t hold back from his thoughts on the first US black president, saying that he wasn’t a fan of Obama.
