J. Cole apologized for his offensive lyric about autism, and now Drake is following suit. The Young Money rapper has also issued a sincere apology for the “pain” caused by the lyric, which appeared on Drake’s song “Jodeci Freestyle.”
In a letter posted on his blog October’s Very Own, Drake accepted responsibility. “I share responsibility and offer my sincerest apologies for the pain this has caused,” he said. “Individuals with autism have brilliant and creative minds, and their gifts should not be disparaged or discounted.”
He considers it a learning lesson for both rappers and has decided to remove the offensive lyric from the song.
