@RealDLHughley Calls Out @LupeFiasco On Voting Record (Video inside)

| September 16, 2012 | 0 Comments

Lately, rapper Lupe Fiasco has been caught in the wrath of several industry figures including comedian and actor D.L. Hughley. The 30-year-old Chicago rapper’s beef with Chief Keef, his use of the word “bitch” and now his voting record has caused “Lupe” to make several headlines.

According to Hip Hop DX, political commentator/comedian D.L. called Lupe out for promoting “political apathy” and his claim that he’s planning on not voting. The 49-year-old comedian also added that Lupe, by not voting, is ignoring some very serious issues especially social security.

“He’s bright as hell, but dumb in the weight of the world,” Hughley said. “Young black men are going to listen to him. They are the ones who have decisions made for them, [decisions] that they are not even involved in, which is silly to me. You can’t go through life and not be a participant, and hope things work out for your benefit. When you vote or not vote, you are saying yes or no.

He continued “They want to raise the age of social security from 65 to 68…black men die at 67. Lupe Fiasco forgets that he’s going to be an old man when he’s looking for a social security check, and he dies right before he gets it!”
