Lupe Fiasco Fires Back at D. L. Hughley: You Really Care About Black People? You Put Up 50k and I’ll Put Up 50k
Last week, D.L. Hughley criticized Lupe Fiasco’s stance against voting, saying “He’s bright as h**l, but dumb in the ways of the world,” Hughley told Hot 93.7/Hartford. “Young black men are going to listen to him. They are the ones who have decisions made for them, [decisions] that they are not even involved in, which is silly to me.”
Lupe fired back via Twitter, challenging D.L. Hughley to help him to put money into the black community instead of waiting for elected officials to lend a helping hand.
Fiasco tweeted, “Better yet @RealDlHughley you put up 50k and I’ll put up 50k and let’s flesh out some programs for rural and inner city youth our d**n selves.”
The rapper continued in a second tweet: “Obama need swing states and white people not radical rappers kissing his a*s to win this election.”
And lastly: “When you ready to drop that bread for these babies out here, @RealDlHughley holla at me… til then #LeeMeAlone.”
Lupe Fiasco is clearly making the point that it’s time for black people to do for themselves, in the tradition of Booker T. Washington, and stop waiting for the corrupt political system to work for them. In that sense, Lupe is challenging Hughley to put up or shut up. Voting one day out the year is easy, but donating $50,000 of your hard earned money is hard. As of now, there is no indication that Hughley will accept Lupe’s challenge.
