London: Rapper Professor Green has cut `X Factor` winner James Arthur from his album.

The 30-year-old `Remedy` hitmaker was forced to drop Arthus from a track following a string of public controversies surrounding his use of homophobic lyrics and online Twitter rants, suggest reports.

"James Arthur was on that record. But then he just kind of imploded, didn`t he? It`s a shame, when I met him he was a cool guy but he just upset so many people," Professor Green said.

"The label was just like, `It`s not happening`, and I can`t fight the people who I need to support me."
