The 'Lasers' rapper gets political
Thursday, March 10, 2011 - 01:20
Lupe has explained that he has grievances with the government, and believes that just because he’s black it doesn’t mean that he should support someone he doesn’t believe in.
He told Gigwise: "I was never on the bandwagon of Obama like that, because I'm not on the bandwagon for the American Government, the Federal Government. It's not all 100 percent evil, but it does a whole lot to not make you think that.
“The economical policies that are instigated really make you think that the American government is a bunch of evil ba***rds. So just because you're black, you're still representing that government and when Obama came into office he enacted the same policies that we would critique other presidents for.
“The people who are on your economic team and determine the economic policies for the rest of us are the same people who ran those financial institutions, the same people who were corrupt and could possibly face criminal charges, but he's the head of your economic thing. Honestly, what the f**k is that? That's what you call a WTF. So I think the critiques are poignant."
