Lupe Fiasco

The Chicago rapper is reportedly appearing on an episode of "The O'Reilly Factor" to discuss his assertion that President Barack Obama is "the biggest terrorist." Fiasco was widely panned for making the remark during a CBS interview and Fox News' Bill O'Reilly joined the choir of critics this week.

He called the rapper a "pinhead" for the Obama remark and for denouncing the "foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists." O'Reilly further claimed that Fiasco could not defend the remark and that he had refused an invitation to appear on the show. Fiasco quickly set the record straight via Twitter: "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!"

Now come reports from BET and others that the rapper will appear on "The O'Reilly Factor" next week. Should be a fascinating chat.
