There is no doubt Lupe Fiasco has plenty of fans, but he also a legion of detractors (see, there are other words than “hater”). This was evident when the Chicago rapper got hit with a tomato while performing in Salt Lake City, which led to the end of the show.
As Lupe Fiasco tours in support of his upcoming album Tetsuo and Youth, lots of his fans are getting excited for another album from the rapper. Well, almost everybody. Last night in Utah, Lupe Fiasco was performing a crowd favorite, “Kick, Push” while on tour. Towards the end of the song, though, things got a little….saucy.
Apparently, someone from the top balcony decided to hurl a tomato at Lupe during his performance. Lupe immediately stopped the music and pointed out who he thought it was – a “fat, white bitch” (see tweets below). Then he demanded that everyone in her section leave the area or else he wouldn’t perform any more. The fans didn’t budge, and the show abruptly ended.
Is it no country for “Kick Push”? That’s a classic. Way to mess it up for everybody, tomato hurler.
