Wasalu Muhammad Jaco, Bust good decorations and start preparing for the seven-layer dip, because there are birthdays to celebrate today. This is a particularly strong day for drummers, both as Slayer skinsman Dave Lombardo and Foo Fighters Taylor Hawkins’ time keeper turn one year wiser today (Lombardo is 46, Hawkins 39). But the crew MTV Newsroom is the happiest for Lupe Fiasco, who turns 29 years today.
Chicago native Fiasco (born Wasalu Muhammad Jaco) has begun writing and recording hip-hop music when he was 17 and 19 formed a group called Da Pak (they signed a record deal and released a single but separated before an album could be completed). Fiasco has made a sensational debut on the mixtape circuit, the fall of the beloved Fahrenheit 1 / 15 series in 2006. In the meantime, Fiasco attracted the attention of both Jay-Z (who briefly met during his mandate as member of the list Arista Records) and Kanye West (who liked Fiasco mixtape versions of “Jesus Walks “and” Diamonds From Sierra Leone “), and he scored a breakout hit with” Kick, Push “, the explosion of a pop-friendly mix of fresh air that story Streetwise with the worldview of intelligent Fiasco . It is the best skate anthem hip-hop of all time.
It is not unusual for a rapper to criticize the President of the United States. George W. Bush felt the wrath of some of the biggest names in hip-hop, including Kanye West and Eminem. It is, however, almost unheard of for a rapper to criticize the current president – especially a rapper from the same town as the commander in chief.
And this is one reason why Chicago rapper Lupe Fiasco (whose real name Wasalu Muhammad Jaco) has warned Hot 106.3 FM in Providence, Rhode Island as his latest single, “Words I Never Said,” would be a “very Basically, controversial record. ” In the song, Fiasco admits to not vote for Obama in the 2008 presidential election and says he will not vote for him in the 2012 election, either.
Fiasco, who is Muslim, rap, “Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist / Gaza was being burned, Obama has not said (expletive) / That’s why I’m not vote for him, then another. ”
While criticizing Obama without an agreement may seem great for some, it’s almost a blasphemy in the hip-hop community. Rappers have praised Obama in their songs since he was a senator from Illinois – the common Jadakiss “Why?” (Remix) Young Jeezy ‘My President is Black “Nas” Black President. ”
