Lupe Fiasco is on a press run in support of his upcoming album Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1, and during an interview in Philadelphia with Power 99FM's Mina SayWhat, Lupe had some criticism for President Obama. When asked about who he feels is putting out positive images, he responded, "On one hand, you have someone who is a great speaker, but kills little children - our President." He continued, "I'm talking about ordering a drone attack. Ordering drone attacks that go and kill mothers, innocent bystanders, children. Militants too, but the collateral damage. You're responsible for that, too."
When Mina defends the President, saying that any killings of innocent people as a result of Obama's orders are not intentional, Lupe responded, saying, "A drug dealer can say the same thing. 'I didn't mean to kill all the people in the restaurant. I was just trying to get that one dude who killed my cousin. Just so happened that that little girl was there.' Same thing." Listen to the full interview below (the Obama talk starts 9:05 in). Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1 drops September 25.
