Chicago born rapper Lupe Fiasco exploded in an angry tirade while performing at a WPGC 95.5 Fillmore concert in Maryland. The outspoken rapper ranted about radio and stated that he doesn't care if the powers-that-be have a problem with it.
"Let me get this sh*t off my chest," Lupe told the crowd. "We clearly have motherf*ckers talking all that, 'Man, the streets are so f*cked up. Dudes are shooting at each other. These girls are running around here running reckless and all this other crazy sh*t.' Then it be them same motherf*ckers that go on they radio stations and play their motherf*cking songs -- that sh*t just irks me, I sit back and look at sh*t and be like, 'D*mn, I can't even speak on the sh*t no more because it's so ridiculous because we do it to our f*cking self.' You know what I'm saying? In the littlest, smallest ways. The smallest, hypocritical ways."
"It comes to a point where you have to stand up and speak on some sh*t," Lupe added. "You can hate me for saying that, I know I sound like I'm preaching, but I don't give a f*ck. ... When I say stuff like that and you hear me rant, when I say something, I mean it, from the bottom of my heart because I'm a brave, courageous motherf*cker. If there's some sh*t wrong in the world, I'm going to speak on it. If you don't like it, then don't pay me to do the sh*t then."
