A CROYDON rapper has laid into James Arthur over Twitter for alleged homophobic language in one of the X Factor winner's songs. Mickey Worthless tweeted about his anger after Arthur used the word "queer" in a rap. The Twitter war that ensued also brought in comedians Matt Lucas and Frankie Boyle - and ended with Arthur quitting the social media site. Worthless, who used to be a regular at the Black Sheep bar - which closed down earlier this week - says he was most angered by Arthur comparing him to the Taliban. He told NME magazine: "Yeah, he called me Taliban. I was like, 'Come on man, why are you bringing my actual race into it?' "You can tell he's not very smart because I just don't know how he thought that could fly." Worthless also composed a new track, called Stay in Your Lane, mocking the 2012 X Factor champion. A few hours later, Arthur responded with Hey Mickey - his attempted dig at Worthless. But the unimpressed Croydon artist said: "It sounded like someone's first tentative attempt at making hip-hop, which I'm quite sure that it was. "There was no lyrical content, the beat itself was wack, the hook was wack, the lyrics were childish. I don't think he knows about bars and beats. "It was really cringeworthy. He really, really shouldn't have done it." Arthur has today again found himself in social media hot water, after a war of words with fellow 2012 X Factor hopeful Lucy Spraggan.
