J. Cole, Drake Apologize For ‘Embarrassing’ Autism Lyric: ‘[We] Should Have Known Better’

Yesterday, J. Cole apologized to people with autism and their families over a lyric in Drake’s song “Jodeci Freestyle.” Now Drake is also sharing his remorse over the offensive line.

The rapper took to his blog, October’s Very Own, on Monday (July 22) to “share responsibility and my 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,” he wrote, letting fans know he wanted to “right this wrong.”

Drake ended his note by writing, “J. Cole and I believe that it is the right, responsible, and respectful decision to remove the lyric from the song.”
