Lupe Fiasco has a few choice words for his friend and fellow rapper Royce Da 5’9 who has been getting into heated arguments with other rappers on social media in defense of his longtime pal, Eminem.
More recently, the Detroit emcee got into a heated argument with The Source founder Dave Mays on the Clubhouse app, which resulted in Nickle Nine giving Mays the boot.
Now, Lupe Fiasco, who co-hosts the “Lupe & Royce” podcast with Royce, wants him to stop fighting Slim Shady’s battles. Lupe thinks that Eminem should defend himself.
You have no idea what I’ve been going through these past few days.Royce Da 5’9
Lupe was unsympathetic and quickly replied,
You do this sh*t to yourself, Royce. I told you not to frolic with these muthaf*ckas! You down there with random n*ggas talking sh*t about sh*t, Eminem getting you in trouble. You gotta play the back sometimes.Lupe Fiasco
Royce then asked,
Lupe, if a muthafucka come to my room and start to spread hurtful, anecdotal, derogatory narratives, what am I supposed to do?Royce Da 5’9
Lupe had a simple answer for that one, saying:
Sometimes you gotta let Eminem fight that sh*t. Fuck these n*ggas, man. Pay them n*ggas no mind. They’re upset, in their feelings. Fuck ’em.Lupe Fiasco
In the past, Royce has gotten into verbal altercations with several rappers over Eminem, including Nick Cannon, Machine Gun Kelly, Tee Grizzley and more recently, Benzino. Eminem usually remains quiet until he is ready to drop new music, while Royce drags them on social media.
