Huffington Post A few weeks ago, the political right criticized President Barack Obama for having Common, a Chicago-native rapper, to the White House for a poetry reading.
Lupe Fiasco: "I don't want you to bomb some village in the middle of nowhere.
Now, the situation's turned on its head, as a Chicago rapper is attacking the President for being too far right in his foreign policy.
In an interview on "What's Trending," a CBS News video segment, Lupe Fiasco -- a rapper known for his socially conscious and politically charged lyrics -- had some harsh words for the president.
"In my fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama, and the United States of America,"
Lupe told host Shira Lazar. He went on to explain the comment:
"I'm trying to fight the terrorism that's actually causing the other forms of terrorism. You know, the root cause of terrorism is the stuff that the U.S. government allows to happen, and the foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists. And it's easy for us because it's just some oil."
