Story of The Week: Lupe Fiasco Calls barack obama "the biggest terrorist"
On Tuesday Lupe Fiasco sat down with CBS' "What's Trending?" There he spoke out against Obama, terrorism, and explained why he doesn’t vote. In the interview, Lupe maintained that the biggest terrorist of all was Barack Obama. He went on to blame the American government as the root cause for terrorism, citing “the foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists." On Thursday evening, in an interview with Billboard magazine he refused to retract his statements. His response to the backlash was that of frustration, saying “It’s really about, ‘What do people want to listen to?’ It’s not what I want to talk about.”

Win of The Week / Fail of The Week
Queen Latifah had a great week. Sunday, the Newark born rapper/actress was inducted into the New Jersey Hall Of Fame for her contributions to both the music and film industries. Her fellow inductees included John Travolta and Bruce Willis. Congrats to the Queen. On the losing end was Flo Rida, who was busted in Miami Beach Thursday morning for a DUI. For what it’s worth; we’re glad he got pulled over when did. It would have been a complete waste of $1.7 million, had he damaged the Bugatti Veyron he was driving at the time.

Doesn't it hurt to watch a boxer still box when he's heart isn't in it that's what the group feels like right now
To me, the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America. For me, I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s actually causing the other forms of terrorism. The root cause of the terrorism is the stuff that you as a government allow to happen and the foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists.

Number of The Week: How Much Money Did flava flav spend on drugs during a six-year period?
In Flava Flav’s new book Flava Flav: Icon, the legendary Public Enemy hype-man openly talks about his battles with drugs and substance abuse. In an interview with Pop Eater he elaborates, saying “I was spending $2,600 a day, for six years, every single day.” If one does the math on that, it comes out to 2,191 days (including a leap year). That means Flav spent $5,696,600 on his constant procurement of the cook-up. We call that blowin’ money, literally.
