The rapper’s final trilogy of albums may not happen.

Lupe Fiasco abruptly cancelled his planned trilogy of albums, announcing an early retirement after being accused of antisemitism in the lyrics of his new single ‘N.E.R.D.’.

Fiasco posted a new track last night featuring the line “Artists gettin’ robbed for their publishing / By dirty Jewish execs who think that it’s alms from the covenant”.

Though he tried to argue the line was not anti-Semitic with many fans through a long series of tweets, it only led to a stronger negative response. Today, after saying Soundcloud removed his song due to “hate speech,” he tweeted a final word on the matter before setting his account to private:

“Yo Lupe fans it’s been fun and I hope you’ve had fun. I’m officially not releasing anymore music. Albums cancelled,” he wrote.
