Security at StartUp RockOn's inauguration party Sunday night escorted headlining rapper Lupe Fiasco offstage when he launched into an anti-Obama rant during his set.
"Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist, Gaza Strip was getting bombed," Fiasco rapped. "Obama didn't say s***. That's why I ain't vote for him, next one either."
Foreign Policy's Josh Rogin reported that Fiasco was thirty minutes into his anti-war song at the Hamilton Live in Washington, D.C. when guards led him off the stage:
