Leave it to Lupe to start a fiasco at an inaugural event.

"Battle Scars" rapper Lupe Fiasco, who infamously referred to President Barack Obama as a "terrorist" in 2011, was back on his president-bashing schtick again, rapping an anti-Obama song at the StartUp RockOn concert party Sunday night at Hamilton Live Theater.

The Chicago native hit the stage at the unofficial pre-inaugural ball, going on a rant about the administration's warfare program and his decision not to vote for Obama, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

"[Rush] Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist," Fiasco said. "Gaza Strip was getting bombed, Obama didn't say sh-t. That's why I ain't vote for him, next one either."

While the event's organizers told the mag the hip-hop star was not "kicked off stage," they did admit "organizers moved on to the next act" after his "bizarrely repetitive, jarring performance" left the crowd "dissatisfied."

According to the Los Angeles Times, a staff member approached Fiasco while he was on stage, but he kept rapping until the lights were dimmed. He walked offstage after that.
