Song: Lupe Fiasco f/ Skylar Grey "Words I Never Said"
Label: 1st & 15th/Atlantic
Lupe had a lot to say in 2011. He told us he hated his own album, he called Lil B a genius, and he even called President Obama the biggest terrorist. Never one to bite his tongue, the rapper made sure his voice was heard in every possible forum regarding his dissatisfaction with American politics this year. The guy even made an appearance on Fox News's The O'Reilly Factor to voice his condemnation of President Barack Obama.
In this line, you see that Lupe's criticisms are not only aimed toward the left, but targets on both sides. By attacking popular political commentators Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck, while also denouncing the president's lack of involvement in foreign affairs, the line perfectly encapsulated Lupe's frustrations with the poltical system.
