Lupe Fiasco spitting opinions on Assad, ISIS and racism

Lupe Fiasco, known as an Afro-American rapper whose songs are quite often inspired by his opinions on social, political and economic issues. But Lupe isn’t only strongly opinionated when he raps, it seems like he can be pretty vocal on social media too. Tonight, it wasn’t only his name that screamed fiasco. A chaos of different tweets filled his highly followed Twitter page. Talking, or more like discussing things such as Bashar Al-Assad, Hezbollah, ISIS and Syrian refugees all in a way that it almost doesn’t make sense. It isn’t clear who started this whole thread and why Lupe decided to comment on all these people, but one thing is for sure: it started a really interesting flood of tweets.

Lupe tweeting about Middle Eastern politics…

And of course racism couldn’t lack as a topic.

And if there was one thing that was pretty clear after reading the whole thread, it’s that Lupe sure isn’t a big fan of Assad.

And he sure isn’t afraid to throw some controversial tweets onto his followers.

So, we aren’t sure what exactly happened here, but I think there’s one thing that his followers have learned about Lupe: he definitely isn’t afraid to speak up. And to quote the man himself : I teach through intellect when in intellects presence and I teach with savagery when with savages…#YinAndYang
