Professor Green is absolutely not going to be toning down his hard-hitting lyrics to avoid causing offence.

Fans of the rapper, real name Stephen Manderson, will know he doesn’t shy away from a savage line – and that’s never going to change.

The 35-year-old said to ‘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.’

As a rapper, he has been paying close attention to the recent war between Stormzy and Wiley, who have been sending for each other with increasingly personal diss tracks.

Over the course of a week or so, Wiley, 42, accused his younger counterpart of being ‘worse than Ed Sheeran’ for their collaboration on Take Me Back To London.

They even dragged their mums into the situation with the Wearing My Rolex rapper threatening to ‘rip her weave off’. However, Stormzy claimed that he had won the battle in an ‘easy victory’.

While Professor Green declared himself a ‘spectator’ and declined to pick a side, he felt Wiley may have damaged his ‘legacy’ by coming for the Know Me From star.

The Remedy rapper also warned against rappers getting too personal and taking their issues outside of the studio.

‘It’s good for business. 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”,’ he explained.

‘There’s an element of it that is a sport. I started out battling so to me it is a sport. If you can keep it on record, cool. But when it leaves the studio that’s different. When something happens because someone said something on a record, I’m not okay with that.

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

He continued: ‘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.’

Stephen recently became ambassador for My Online Therapy, the UK’s first virtual psychology clinic, which aims to make counselling 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.’
