A rapper from Chicago went on a half-hour tirade against President Barack Obama at a Washington, D.C., inauguration party Sunday.

Lupe Fiasco was asked to leave the stage 30 minutes into the rant.

"These same people supposedly telling us the truth/Limbaugh is a racist/Glebb Beck is a racist/Gaza Strip was getting bombed/Obama didn't say s---," Fiasco rapped. "that's why I ain't vote for him, next one either/I'm part of the problem/My problem is I'm peaceful."

Several published reports say Fiasco was asked to play a different song, but when he refused, he was escorted offstage and off the premises.
