Lupe Fiasco Quits Music After Antisemitic Freestyle Lupe Fiasco's freestyle N.E.R.D. May Have Ended His Career
Lupe Fiasco has cancelled his album and quit music after being accused of antisemitism.
The rapper released a freestyle earlier this week that included the line “Artists gettin’ robbed for their publishing / By dirty Jewish execs who think that it’s alms from the covenant”, which led to widespread blowback on social media. The track N.E.R.D. was criticized by fans on Twitter, which led to an angry response from the 34-year-old ChiTown native. He denied accusations of antisemitism in a flurry of tweets, where he stated: “I’ve walked inside the ovens of Auschwitz” and “I’ve studied the Hebrew bible”. He then went on to tweet “dirty ass fake muslims selling alcohol in the hood” before falsely claiming his song had been removed from Soundcloud because of hate speech.
Finally, after arguing with those attacking him, he tweeted: “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.” He also said he was “getting beat up for telling the truth”.
