Lupe Fiasco (real name Wasalu Muhammad Jaco) has been known to go through one identity crisis after another.
In his pre-Food & Liquor days he was more interested in doing his impression of a “gangsta rapper”, then he went to “backpack rap,” and now that he’s growing his hair out, it appears that his latest mask is that of a part-time revolutionary, who also likes to DJ, and has tons of criticism for President Obama.
The Chicago native is clearly not a fan of the president, and during an interview with Philly’s Power 99 radio station he continued his tirade.
“One hand, you have someone who is a great speaker, but kills little children – our president,” he noted.

During a recent interview with the JasmineBrand, Mr. Fiasco chatted about his new hair style (Dreads) and his album.
On the overall theme of the album:
It’s Food and Liquor II The Great American Rap Album. It talks about the great American experience, the American nightmare, the American dream, the American hopes, the American aspirations, the American institutions, the American phenomenon. So that’s one half of the album and then there are songs that break those up that are just rap songs for the hardcore Lupe fans.
On rumors that he’s dating a white girl:
Who’s dating a white girl? Where did you here that? What blog? What pictures? It’s too vague, the Internet is a funky place. I’m gonna refute that.
On the recent drama surrounding the Jackson family feud:
I didn’t even know what was going on; I’ve been so into this grind and then it’s Ramadan so I’m fasting and just locked in focused on radio promo and interviews and stuff like that for the past week. So I’ve been out of the loop, I apologize.
On why he decided to grow dreads:
I just always wanted long hair. I was like I’m at a place where I’m famous enough and crazy enough where people will be like ‘Aw man he’s crazy, he can do whatever he wants’. It’s not gonna get that long its not that serious. It’s an experience to have while I still have hair.
Clearly, fame has gotten to this boy’s head!!
