Rapper Lupe Fiasco was asked to leave the stage during his performance at the Obama inauguration on Sunday because of politically charged lyrics.

In YouTube videos posted shortly after the incident the rapper can be seen singing, “Limbaugh is a racist; Glenn Beck is a racist, Gaza Strip was getting bombed. Obama didn’t say s#$%. That’s why I aint vote for him, next one either”

This is part of a song that Fiasco has been performing for a few years now.

According to Politico; a company involved in the event says she was not kicked off the stage for “Anti-Obama” lyrics.
