Lupe Fiasco has teased retirement before but now the Chicago rapper claims he is officially done with the rap game for good this time.
In a series of tweets posted on the December 13th, Lupe expresses frustration that his “N.E.R.D.” freestyle, which was rapped over J. Cole’s “Everybody Dies” beat, was apparently taken down by SoundCloud. The removal is apparently due to “hate speech.” DJBooth penned an editorial pointing out one specific line that it found to be anti-semitic.
“Artists getting robbed for their publishing by dirty Jewish execs who think it’s alms from the covenant,” Lupe, raps on the song. After the editorial was published, the MC went on Twitter to defend the line, saying that not all Jewish executives are corrupt, he was just trying to make a point about those who are.
