Lupe Fiasco Speaks On The Bin Laden Killing
Most recently Lupe Fiasco appeared on “The Colbert Report,” before performing "Words I Never Said," the Midwest emcee encouraged every taxpaying citizen to question those in power, and spoke on Osama Bin Laden's killing. According to sources, with all the hype surrounding Bin Laden’s killing, Lupe is among the dozens of Hip Hop artists who have also sounded off on the killing of the former Al Qaeda leader. “We got one guy, as for his thoughts on what many pundits have dubbed the "War on Terror," I don’t see an end to it.
