Lupe Fiasco Talks Politics, Performs on ‘Colbert Report’
Lupe Fiasco‘s third solo album ‘Lasers’ officially debuted in March, after a roughly two-year delay, and the Chi-Town rapper is still hot on the promotion trail.
On Monday night (May 9), Lupe made an appearance on the Comedy Central show ‘The Colbert Report’ to perform his first ‘Lasers’ single, ‘Words I Never Said,’ with some assistance from singer Skylar Grey.
But before he took the stage, Lupe sat down to chat with host Stephen Colbert about his music, which inevitably zeroed in on his anti-Obama lyrics in the album’s lead single. “I always criticize power, even if you agree with it you should criticize power,” Lupe explained. “I’m a taxpayer so that gives me the right to critique everybody.”
In response to Colbert’s probe about whether or not Osama bin Laden’s death has changed his tune in regards to Obama or the War on Terror, Lupe replied, “No, not necessarily, because I don’t see any end to it, it’s not a way of attrition, we got one guy.”
