Lupe Fiasco Sitting 2012 Out

Lupe Fiasco, perhaps the most popular politically involved rapper today, ironically won't be getting involved in the 2012 election. “No, I don’t vote,” he said in an interview last year. “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.”
