Lupe Fiasco will appear on The O'Reilly Factor tonight, a week after the Fox News deemed the Chicago rapper "a pinhead" for saying "the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America" during an interview earlier this month on CBS's streaming web show What's Trending. Based on this one-minute preview released today by Fox News Insider, those hoping to see O'Reilly replicate the vein-popping grandeur of his 2003 interview with Cam'ron may come away disappointed.

We understand that it's Monday, and that the confusion over whether or not Fiasco turned down O'Reilly's original offer to appear on the show (O'Reilly says he did, while Fiasco tweeted that he never heard about it) may have sapped some enthusiasm from both men. But how could they fail to discuss Fiasco's new single "All Black Everything", in which he name-drops O'Reilly and says the Fox News host "read[s] from the Koran"? Inquiring minds want to know.
