Lupe Fiasco 'Somewhat' Agrees With Controversial Bill O'Reilly Comment

Chicago MC says talk-show host had ‘credible argument’ when he compared Chicago to Haiti.
MTV | January 27, 2010

Lupe Fiasco: “I don’t want to be pointed out as supporting Bill O’Reilly in any way because he can be on the garbage sometimes. When you’re comparing certain areas in the U.S. that are predominantly African-American or Latino, it’s very easy to compare it to the Third World,” Lupe said. “Just in the amount of violence that’s there, the corruption that’s there, the gang activity that’s there. It’s prevalent and dominant in Haiti. The corruption of the local politicians, the abject, corporate exploitation that takes place there, loan sharking, all that stuff. I think you can make the comparison to a lot of places in the U.S. Oakland [California], Detroit. Detroit’s got abandoned buildings. On that note, he’s definitely not out of the ballpark. There’s a credible argument there. I agree with that in some aspects.”

Empire State of Mind Part XXII

by PS22 Chorus

The PS22 Chorus delivers big time on this New York anthem by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys! Props to Dominique & Messale for amazing jobs on the lead vocals & rap (respectively). And of course to Ethan for a well-deserved happy dance at the song’s conclusion.

We based our version more on the Alicia Keys “Empire State of Mind Part II,” but as a tribute to Jay-Z version, the kids and I created our own little rap that obviously was a bit more age appropriate.
