Drake Apologizes For J.Cole Lyric

First Down Friday Hosted By Dwight Freeney

Sorry 2004 2013. The day after J.Cole apologized for his lyric on Drake’s “Jodeci Freestyle”, Drizzy turned to his blog and expressed his regret. He also said that the lyric will be removed.

J.Cole wrote a beautiful and moving apology to individuals and families affected by autism who were understandably hurt by a verse in “Jodeci Freestyle”. I share responsibility and offer my sincerest apologies for the pain this has caused. Individuals with autism have brilliant and creative minds, and their gifts should not be disparaged or discounted. This was a learning lesson for both of us, and 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.

    Well….

    If Jay-Z apologies next to Harry Belafonte, you can now place “The Marshall Mathers LP” to an even higher status.

    That would of been the last time you heard a album that uncensored and raw in Hip-Hop…. If I forgot any others my apologies. . . . . . . . . . Oh shit. Now I’m following the trend. FUCK

  • london

    enough already with this apologizing bullshit. drake is and will always be a soft pussy

  • ThisisToby

    Why the fuck is Drake apologizing for J.Cole’s lyrics, when J.Cole already done it anyway?

  • Just Saying

    I’m sorry, there must be a mix-up
    You want me to fix up lyrics while the President gets his dick sucked?
    Fuck that, take drugs, rape sluts
    Make fun of gay clubs, men who wear make-up
    Get aware, wake up, get a sense of humor
    Quit tryna censor music, this is for your kid’s amusement (The kids!)
    But don’t blame me when little Eric jumps off of the terrace
    You shoulda been watching him, apparently you ain’t parents.

  • LordYeezus

    Seems like Eminem and Kanye West are the only ones who really use their freedom of speech right.

    Damn. Em was so damn ill.

    These bars are the PERFECT response to the censorship question.

    I hope rap doesn’t lose it’s edge, it’s dark humour, it’s political incorrectness.

    smh

    *its

  • Black Shady

    I dont like where this is going. Honestly…hip hop will be censored if this shit continue…

  • BIG ROME

    This era of hiphop is ass.
    I wonder what would have happened…… if n.w.a. dre and tupac had apologized for the stuff they said ..

    Why is this generation a bunch of sell out pussies?

  • JustMyOpinion

    I know what, aside from J.Cole, these rappers don’t write their apology statements. The wording alone, has “my publicist” written all over it.

  • verbalvirgo1

    it’s crazy that today everyone trying to censor Mcee’s lyrics when hip hop is all about expression and back then Biggie smalls said alot of crazy things “Rape Your Kid, Throw Her Over The Bridge” and he said “Hail Mary, f–k her, I never knew her. I’d probably screw her and dump her body in the sewer” harsh lyrics that if he was around today he probably would always be in the new’s…….. and it dont matter if they change the lyrics because the record is already out and people will still have it and the record will prolly just go under banned music or unofficial un released j cole drake track.. lolz

    Who cares, 4 real …

  • ***BLACK MIRROR***

    Real question tho. I too believe that rappers should be able to say what they want with no apology. Does that mean when some one says something racist about black people we should move on? Open discussion.

  • TheCritic

    Drake and Cole take your L

  • Lincoln’s bullet

    Censoring yourself to a bunch of people who don’t actually gives a fuck about you or your race. You can talk about sex, drugs and murder (no problem)… I dunno, let me get off my soapbox

  • IIG

    Man hip hop has become too pussified.

  • verbalvirgo1

    i bet half the people complaining about there lyric’s don’t even listen to rap..

  • Hell

    ‘A learning lesson’ as apposed to what you weak minded pale ass Chuck E. Cheese looking motherfucker!

  • StarFox64

    if the lyric is changed and removed i’m done. this is never the case with other mainstream music

  • Starks

    2013 year of the apologetic rapper… I do understand why this is an issue though. .. Out all of the 310 apologies we have heard from rappers this year J.Cole is the only one I get

  • The Brain Trust

    @blackmirror

    If someone says racist shit about black people (or any other racial group), we have a right to question their statement & criticise them severely.

    We have NO RIGHT to demand an apology, or try & censor their speech though.

  • ***BLACK MIRROR***

    @The Brain Trust …good point.

  • Hip-Hop Fiend

    Chief Keef and 50 Tyson are gonna murk y’all niggas for shittin on their disability

  • Craze

    Mulattos like J. Cole and Drake are soft as shit.

  • Gayke

  • cm

    What y’all don’t understand is this sheds light on the track giving them more publicity and people actually listening to it if they haven’t..genius!!

  • Dang

    Dang. Guess I’m gettin old. I thought it was a GOOD thing to apologize if you’ve hurt someone?

    And why SHOULDN’T you get some added publicity for doing the GOOD thing? Guess we’d rather continue living in a world where the only time you get extra attention is when you’re doing something ignorant?

    drake the type of nigga that puts cucumber over his eyes after a long day
