Lupe Fiasco Quits Music After Getting Backlash Over Anti-Semitic Lyrics

Lupe Fiasco says he's 'officially not releasing anymore music' after his song gets banned due to alleged hate speech.

AceShowbiz - Lupe Fiasco went off on Twitter. The rapper announced the cancellation of his album releases in a series of angry rants. He was apparently furious after his song "N.E.R.D." which sampled J. Cole's "Everybody Dies" was banned by SoundCloud.

The song was removed due to controversial lyrics which were perceived as hate speech. He was accused of being an anti-Semite for rapping, "Artists gettin' robbed for their publishing by dirty Jewish execs that think his alms from the covenant."

"Sooooo @SoundCloud took the NERD freestyle down because of 'Hate Speech'??? I'm done," he wrote on his Twitter which has since been set to private. "Getting beat up for telling the truth is not how I plan on spending the rest of life. I get the hint God. Yo Lupe fans it's been fun and I hope you've had fun. I'm officially not releasing anymore music. Albums cancelled."

Lupe Fiasco is no stranger to early retirements. Back in 2015, he stepped away from spotlight after receiving backlash for using a profanity in his "Martin Luther King" tweet. He also said earlier this year he would give up music. He promised to roll out three new albums "Drogas", "Skulls" and "Roy" this year before quitting for good, but none of them has seen the light the light of the day as 2016 is coming closer to an end.
