Lupe Fiasco Calls It Quits After SoundCloud Takes Down "N.E.R.D." Freestyle

Lupe Fiasco seems to have an on-again-off-again relationship with music - or, at the very least, with album releases. After releasing his freestyle, "N.E.R.D." at the top of the week, which was quickly taken down by SoundCloud who deemed it hate speech and anti-Semitic, he took to Twitter to tell fans that he's done with music. Check the excerpt below, as well as what could've been on the now cancelled Drogas above. 

"Line us up, paddling us on the back
Like we steamboat you, president of the frat
You goin' sling toast, like you Ringo
And you think Doc Holliday's
Just goin' tolerate and too sick to let that thing go

It's just a matter of returns
Ashes to ashes, scattered them from the urns
To start a fire shaky to gather them from the burned
And reassemble these ashes, the blackness is something firm

Then moving blackness backwards in the bread of some other shit
Any deep we spreadin' wheat seeds from a bucket shit
McDonald had a farm and he lovin' it
Rolls Royce of the scented voice against the arms of the government

Artist gettin' robbed for their publishing
By dirty Jewish execs that think his alms from the covenant
I'll retire when I'm tired, that's a Firestone death
Easy to say when nobody's there, like a microphone check"
