A French rapper who compared himself to Adolf Hitler was dropped by his label Friday after being accused of spreading anti-Semitism.
Fast-rising star Freeze Corleone’s debut album “LMF” was released last week, with one of his songs already amassing more than 1.3 million views on YouTube.
But Universal Music France said despite its success they were cutting all ties with him because “the release of the album has revealed and amplified unacceptable racist statements.”
The album, whose full title is “La Menace Fantome” (The Phantom Menace), also contains references to popular conspiracy theories.
In other lyrics Corleone declares that he “arrives determined like Adolf in the 1930s,” that he doesn’t “give a damn about the Shoah” and that “like Swiss bankers, it will be all for the family so my children can live like Jewish rentiers.”
