Last week on Hot 93.7/Hartford comedian D.L. Hughley bashed Lupe Fiasco for hie stance against voting saying:
He’s bright as hell, but dumb in the ways of the world, Young black men are going to listen to him,”
“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.”
Lupe Fiasco never backing down from a fight responded in a series of Tweets telling Hughley to put his money where his mouth 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 damn selves”
Lupe Fiasco who in the past has repeatedly expressed his issues with President Obama, says rappers don’t play a role in helping the president get re-elected:
“Obama need swing states and white people not radical rappers kissing his a*s to win this election.”
Well I don’t know about that one Lupe, gonna have to disagree with that assessment.
Lupe ended off his Tweets by further challenging the comedian:
When you ready to drop that bread for these babies out here @RealDlHughley holla at me…til then #LeeMeAlone
Lupe’s journey to the release of his highly anticipated album “Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1” has been paved with controversy, first it was the miss communication with Pete Rock over Around My Way (Freedom Ain’t Free) which led to some back and forth on Twitter.
Then it was the more recent beef with Chief Keef who threatened to slap him on Twitter, after Lupe unintentionally affiliated Chief Keef with the high crime rate in Chicago.
