First Lady Michelle Obama has invited a rapper who called for the burning of George Bush to perform at the White House.
Lonnie Rashid Lynn Jr, who uses the stage name ‘Common’, will be welcomed at an event celebrating American poetry on Wednesday.
He is expected to take part in rap workshops with schoolchildren in the afternoon before performing in the evening.

‘Burn a Bush cos for peace he no push no button,’ the hip-hop artist raps in one video, which has more than 800,000 views.
