Lupe Fiasco‘s song ‘Words I Never Said’ makes a powerful political statement, and now the rapper has released an equally aggressive music video in which he addresses war, terrorism and censorship.

The clip begins with scary-looking figures in gas masks carrying away a seemingly harmless woman. A newspaper headline appears on the screen to explain the action: “Voice of the People … Spiritual Leader Abducted at Her Rally on Saturday.”

Next, Fiasco boards a bus where the driver and all of the passengers wear gags that keep them silenced, as the voice of guest artist Skylar Grey sings, “I can’t take back the words I never said.”

The Chicago MC grabs the bus speaker and begins rapping, “I really think the war on terror is a bunch of bulls— / Just a poor excuse for you to use up all your bullets / How much money does it take to really make a full clip? / 9-11, Building 7, did they really pull it?”

News footage of conflicts from around the world is mixed in with shots of Fiasco, who continues rapping about school budgets, corrupt bankers and Rush Limbaugh. Eventually, he’s forced off the bus and carried to a jail cell.

The climax of the video comes when Fiasco breaks out and takes down several guards before finding and freeing the abducted spiritual leader.

‘Words I Never Said’ is the second single from Fiasco’s latest release, ‘Lasers,’ which entered the album chart at No. 1 last month.
