Lupe Fiasco’s Former Producer Calls Him Out
Prolyfic, a former friend/producer of Lupe Fiasco, went on a tirade recently against the “Kick, Push” rapper via his Twitter account (@Prolyfthegift).
The producer took to the social network to call Lupe out on a number of issues, accusing him to be “scared of failure.”
He questioned why Lupe went from being one of the most talked-about artists in Hip Hop to having his album delayed and not making many of the industry’s “hottest rapper” lists.
Prolyfic revealed that he believes Lupe Fiasco’s upcoming album, Lazers, has been shelved currently because it has no hit songs, and that Lupe refuses to make hits. He also called out the rapper for “throwing a temper tantrum” when his material gets leaked.
Below are Prolyfic’s Twitter messages regarding the issue, complied by TheHoodNerd.com.
