Lupe Fiasco’s single “The Show Goes On” is certified double platinum even after the Chicago rhyme slinger’s disparaging comments about President Obama.

As previously reported, the emcee released a statement explaining why he thought President Obama was ‘the biggest terrorist in America.’

“I was never on the bandwagon of Obama like that, because I’m not on the bandwagon for the American Government, the Federal Government, says the rapper.

It’s not all 100 percent evil, but it does a whole lot to not make you think that. The economical policies that are instigated really makes you think that the American government is a bunch of evil bastards.

So just because you’re black you’re still representing that government, and when Obama came into office he enacted the same policies that we would critique other presidents for.


“Show Goes On” previously went platinum in April before hitting the 2 million mark today.
