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&AÂ taking place this Saturday, the Muslim emcee expressed his beliefÂ that IslamÂ is on its way to becoming the world's religion, claiming Americans are more Biblically sinful than Saudi Arabians.Â
Lupe also redirectedÂ a question regarding Islam's often-criticized position on gender equality.Â "Where are women equal anywhere though?â 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 offÂ with aÂ classic "Good night folks...thanx for coming out..."
In other Lupe-related news, the emcee's new sports documentaryÂ "Little Ballers" has received an air-date fromÂ Nickelodean. The filmÂ -- 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.
