“No New Friends” rapper Drake has joined in with J. Cole on his apology for derogatory autism lyric on his song,”Jodeci Freestyle,” which sparked controversy earlier this week.
Aubrey had this to say,
I share responsibility and offer my sincerest apologies for the pain this has caused,” Drake wrote on his website. “Individuals with autism have brilliant and creative minds, and their gifts should not be disparaged or discounted.
He also promised to remove the lyric from the song. He also added,
I’m grateful for the opportunity to try to right this wrong. J. Cole and I believe that it is the right, responsible and respectful decision to remove the lyric from the song
Has J. Cole started a new trend of rappers taking responsibility for their words and actions?
