“Mr. Fiasco has been invited on ‘The Factor’ but has declined, possibly because he could not possibly defend that remark, which makes him a pinhead,” he said during his “Pinheads & Patriots” segment. “Now the reason I say I wish I was named Lupe Fiasco, wouldn't it be great, ‘The Fiasco Factor?’ I mean, it would be tremendous.”
Lu responded to his claims, stating that he would "NEVER turn down the opp to push billys buttons!"
Lupe previously defended his comments, explaining that he had “nothing to clarify. “It's funky because everybody's pulling soundbites from this one interview that we did, but they don't talk about anything else from the interview. [...] So it's really about, 'What do people want to listen to?' It's not what I want to talk about, cause I want to talk about all types of shit... there wasn't the same reaction about me having a book club... about me trying to promote literacy in a country with 50 million functioning illiterates walking around, because we have a failed and flawed education system."
"Whoa! I got invited to the O'reilly factor and turned it down??? Thats news to me...would NEVER turn down the opp to push billys buttons!" ~Lupe
