The Moment: Last month, Lupe appeared on Tim Westwood's radio show and revealed that he didn't vote for President Obama—or any President—during the last election.
The Reaction: Amazingly, the reaction to this was pretty split. Some people agreed with the points Lupe made when he revealed that he didn't vote (the war in Iraq seemed to be a big sticking point) while others lambasted him for sending out the wrong message to the kids who listen to his music.
Did It Help or Hurt His Career? HELP! Ultimately, Lu is getting all the attention he could ever want or need right now in the days leading up to Lasers. It's hard to fault him for speaking his mind in order to make the most of it.
