Professor Green has hinted that he feels Brexit is a result of racism in Britain.

The rapper, real name Stephen Manderson, explained that unless people can speak their minds ‘things get said behind closed doors’.

When asked by Metro.co.uk if he would ever consider toning down his lyrics to not cause offence, he said: ‘I say what I want. I don’t mind. Everyone is getting too worried about offending everybody.

‘Then what happens is things get said behind closed doors, i.e. Brexit.’

He added: ‘”We’re not a racist country any more”…right. Okay.’

The 35-year-old recently became an ambassador for My Online Therapy, the UK’s first virtual psychology clinic, which aims to make therapy more accessible for everyone.

‘The way they work is by taking the information that they take, and matching you with a therapist that will actually be able to help you.,’ Stephen explained.

‘A lot of people have a bad experience because they don’t have that rapport. And it takes them a long time, if they stick at it, to find someone to build that rapport with and have enough trust to be honest.’

He went on: ‘I started therapy recently and I’m in a relatively good place but there’s things I wanna make better.

‘People think “therapy” they think you have to be in a really bad place in order to use it. That’s not the case, you can use therapy for a lot of reasons. It can just be to try and make yourself a better version of yourself.’

The Read All About It rapper also weighed in on the recent drama between Stormzy and Wiley, who fell out after Wiley said the grime star was ‘worse than Ed Sheeran’.

While Pro felt it was ‘good for business’ he warned that Wiley might have risked tarnishing his career by beefing Stormzy.

‘You only have to follow historically with American rappers when album time comes it’s like, “let’s talk about all the people that I don’t like”.

‘There’s an element of it that is a sport. I started out battling so to me it is a sport.’

He continued: ‘As long as they keep it peaceful long may it continue. They both made me laugh.

‘The point where Wiley is in his career I don’t think it was necessary. It might have been a detriment to him. Especially when you’re getting eaten by someone who is…you got to be careful.

‘The point where he is at in his career, similar to mine, this is your legacy you’re talking about f*****g up. The last thing people remember about you is that you got ate in a battle.’

‘I’m a spectator. First and foremost I’ve always been a fan,’ he added.

‘People are hesitant to show love in this industry. When people find something they want to keep it to themselves out of fear it will disappear.’
