Digital Spy reports, Josh Rogin of Foreign Policy posted a play-by-play of sorts on Twitter during the show: "Lupe Fiasco just got thrown off stage here at the Hamilton Live after he went on an anti-Obama diatribe mid set," he said.""So Lupe played one anti-war song for 30 min and said he didn't vote for Obama and eventually was told to move on to the next song. Lupe refused to move to the next song so a team of security guards came on stage and told him to go." watch a clip of the scenario below.

This is not the first time Lupe's gone vocal about his distaste for Obama's politics, his song 'Words I Never Said' criticizes the President and in 2011 he called him a 'terrorist.'

"The biggest terrorist is Obama, and the United States of America," the rapper said. "I'm trying to fight the terrorism that's actually causing the other forms of terrorism. You know, the root cause of terrorism is the stuff that the US government allows to happen, and the foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists. And it's easy for us because it's just some oil."

What do you think about Lupe's on-stage protest?
