Lupe claims Saudi Arabia is less Biblically sinful than the United States.
Lupe Fiasco is no stranger to tackling hot-button political issues. In an impromptu Twitter Q&A taking place this Saturday, the Muslim emcee expressed his belief that Islam is on its way to becoming the world's religion, claiming Americans are more Biblically sinful than Saudi Arabians.
Lupe also redirected a question regarding Islam's often-criticized position on gender equality. "Where are women equal anywhere though?” he responded to a fan before inquiring which they were referring to specifically. Following a short exchange, Lupe elaborated his feelings, asking the fan @MrExcalibur1000, biblically speaking, if the USA or Saudi Arabia is more sinful. The fan responded "Saudia Arabia," a sentiment that Lupe immediately laughed off with a classic "Good night folks...thanx for coming out..."
In other Lupe-related news, the emcee's new sports documentary "Little Ballers" has received an air-date from Nickelodean. The film -- centering on a group of 11-year-old basketball players in New York City's Amateur Athletic Union, an inner-city springboard for potential NBA talent -- will air on Nicktoons on Nov. 26 at 9 p.m., during the newly-established NickSports block.

@LupeFiasco 100% equal probably not. I think unequal pay is on a different level from being unable to vote or show your face no?— Curtis (@Nug33ent) October 4, 2014
