22 Jul J. Cole Apologizes For Offensive Lyric On Autism In “Jodeci Freestyle”
After an outcry from Autism Awareness, J. Cole has apologized for his offensive lyric in Drake’s “Jodeci Freestyle” song.
Cole made the announcement stating:
“he doesn’t agree with the recent trend of pressure rappers have faced to apologize when they step over a perceived line, but in this case he feels he went too far in a verse he contributed to Drake’s “Jodeci Freestyle.”
“To the parents who are fighting through the frustrations that must come with raising a child with severe autism, finding strength and patience that they never knew they had; to the college student with Asperger’s syndrome; to all those overcoming autism,”
“You deserve medals, not disrespect. I hope you accept my sincere apology.”-DocFB
Diagnosis: Cole seems apologetic although at first it sounded like he doesn’t like to apologize for lyrics like others have lately. I think Cole gets it and will write better lyrics going forward.
