The Game’s new R.E.D. album may not be as highly anticipated as Dr. Dre’s Detox, but it’s still got the streets looking out for it. Among one of the least expected collaborations to appear on the album is Game’s track with Lupe Fiasco entitled ‘Skate On’. Game took some time to talk about the collab, how it came about, and also touched on Lupe’s comment about Barack Obama.
For those of you who didn’t know what all the hoopla was about, concerning Lupe and President Obama, you can read all about it below.
“To me,” Lupe began, “the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America. I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s causing the other forms of terrorism. You know the root cause of terrorists is the stuff the U.S. government allows to happen. The foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists.”
When asked if who he’ll vote for come 2012, he echoed the sentiments of “Words I Never Said,” saying he doesn’t plan on participating in the voting process because he doesn’t believe he can fully support any candidate.
“No, I don’t vote,” he said. “I don’t get involved in politics. It’s meaningless. If I’m going to say I stand behind this person and write on a piece of paper that says, ‘Yeah, I stand for this person,’ then I have to take responsibility for everything he does cause that’s just who I am as a human being. So politicians aren’t going to do that because I don’t want you to bomb some village in the middle of nowhere.”
Fiasco‘s anti-establishment stance is well documented. For those just now being introduced to him, look no further than his latest single, “Words I Never Said,” for his views on politics.
