Small Bite: @realDLHughley questions @LupeFiasco’s reluctance to vote.

Full Platter:

Hip Hop rapper Lupe Fiasco is no stranger to some good ol' controversy, it seems he is always stirring the pot whether it is through his racially ignited music videos, or attacking Mr. President Barack Obama, it just wouldn't be news if Lupe wasn't acting up some how, right?

This week, comedian D.L. Hughley is calling Lupe out on his refusal to vote in the upcoming presidential election.

During an interview with Hartford, Connecticut's radio station Hot 93.7, Hughley blasted the Chicago-based rapper, stating:

"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.” 

He went on to add: 

“Young black men are going to listen to him, and they are the ones who have decisions made for them, decisions that they are not even involved in, which is silly to me,” he stated. “There are more black men in prison then there were ever slaves. And it’s silly to me that people don’t want to have a hand in their future...You can be bright as hell, but be dumb in the weight of the world. Obviously he hasn’t had life experiences yet.”

Maybe at this point, we are just so accustomed to Lupe's...way of going about things.

Undoubtedly, Lupe's tracks, especially his striking lyrics, are socially conscious; they reflect on real issues of today's world as opposed to rapping about cars, women, and money [like some folks we know].

However, has Hughley raised a valid point?

What do you all think? Let us know.
