Year: 2011

Lupe Fiasco takes the stage at The Palms resort in Vegas and wows the crowd with his party anthem "Words I Never Said." Except "Words I Never Said" isn't a party anthem, it's a political rant. It also happens to be the song he was doing to death earlier this year when he was asked to leave the stage at a pre-Inauguration bash.

Not only does the song complain about the president ("Gaza Strip was getting bombed Obama didn't say shit"), it also compares the crapiness of TV news to the inherent crapiness of MTV's hottest property: "If you turn on TV, all you see's a bunch of what-the-fucks / Dude is dating so-and-so, blabbering 'bout such and such / And that ain't Jersey Shore, homie that's the news."

Who invited Lupe Fiasco to MTV Spring Break? A hero, that's who.
