Black Voices is reporting that controversial rapper Lupe Fiasco has agreed to sit down with conservative talk-show host Bill O'Reilly to discuss his inflammatory comments about President Obama. The rapper, who does not vote, called President Obama "the biggest terrorist in the United States," which ignited a firestorm of drama and criticism from even folks like O'Reilly. O'Reilly called Fiasco's comments "outrageous" and labeled him a "pinhead" for rejecting an offer to appear on The O'Reilly Factor

In response, the rapper tweeted:

Whoa! I got invited to the O'Reilly Factor and turned it down??? That's news to me...would NEVER turn down the opp to push billys buttons.

According to Will Bradford of Black Voices, Fiasco is scheduled to appear on The O'Reilly Factor sometime this week. 

Let's get this straight ... you've got Lupe Fiasco calling President Obama a terrorist, Minister Louis Farrakhan calling him a murderer and Bill O'Reilly sticking up for him? Are we living in bizzaro world? Thank goodness for rapper Common's recent visit to the White House, because President Obama sure isn't getting much love from these two high-profile brothers in Chicago. We're looking forward to hearing Fiasco explain why he thinks the president is a terrorist, and O'Reilly pretending that he actually cares.
