Rap artist Lupe Fiasco says he has no problem taking President Obama to task, even though it might not go over well with some of the fans of his music.

“I respect him. And I love him as a brother,” says the Chicago native, whose long-awaited third album “Lasers” is out this week. “But there’s some serious issues.”

In the clip below and on the show tonight, Fiasco offers his take on U.S. involvement in Afghanistan, addresses an economic system that he believes is “flawed” and explains why he had concerns about President Obama from the beginning.

“You judge a man on his actions,” says Fiasco. “You don’t judge a man on his words.”

Be sure to check out the clip, tune in tonight for the full conversation and weigh in.
