StartUp RockOn is now saying that he left early due to a repetitive and poor performance.

If he got kicked off for voicing his opinion, that's really, really shitty.

If he got kicked off for a poor performance (which wouldn't be too surprising knowing Lupe these days), then that's just a shame.
A bit too coincidental though considering his mic was cut off right after he said those lines.

Ha, oh Dave Mustaine. Yeah, if Lupe doesn't support Obama, I'm not sure why he decided to do the concert, other than to create a bit of controversy. But, I still think he should be allowed to say what he wants on stage, he wasn't defaming or slandering Obama, just stating how he feels. Maybe it was a bit rude, but Obama's drone policy is awful and I think it's good that he said something about that.



Yeah, I thought that as well. I guess until we see the full show, not just a 30 second clip, we can't judge how well he was performing and whether the organiser's statement about his performance has any merit. He did look a bit drugged up in that clip, so who knows.
I dunno, haha. That's the worst excuse I've ever heard from an event sounding like it wants to cover its ass. If anyone believes that, they believe in the Easter Bunny, too.

I'm sure he was performing for awhile, and to say "drugged up" is a pretty strong term, haha.

No. He was removed after playing the same song for over a half hour, and refusing to do anything else.
It could easily be a combination of the two.

He was adding more and more controversial words to the same tune so that it would sink in and that he could express himself as long as he could, because the song was lyrically fitting and the timing was right.

Also, an event doesn't have to be "government sanctioned" for the organizers to be turned off by the content of a message, especially if he's emphasizing it and freestyling the rest.

Someone needs to look up what the term "dictatorship" really means and look to countries that have actually experienced that. Good God.

I hate when people throw that term around and take our country's freedoms for granted. Makes me want to ship them off to an actual autocractic society.

Had they lyrics not been up there, I wouldn't have understood it. I seriously doubt anyone there could've understood it at the time either. Maybe I'm wrong though, I can't say I'm a rap concert connoisseur...
The fans, maybe?

Or somewhat intelligent organizers who take the time to listen to the more politically charged lyrics given the circumstances?

Obama patrol in full effect again!
Yes because feeling that it's ludicrous to say our country is approaching dictatorship means Obama patrol.

No, it just means we're not moronic.

Our government is very shady, but it very rarely circumvents democratic process.
Not sure why this had to be said, but it has nothing to do with our country being a dictatorship or even being close to becoming one.
