Drake x J. Cole

On Drake’s “Jodeci Freestyle” he released about a month back, J. Cole raps, “I’m artistic, you n*ggas is autistic. Retarded.” This didn’t go over well with the autism community at all, and they promptly launched a campaign against the rapper and the song. After Cole issued a very sincere, heartfelt apology yesterday, Drake comes forth today with one of his own as well, being that it was his song at the end of the day. See what Drizzy said below.

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.
