Drake Issues Apology For J Cole Autism Lyrics On His Jodeci Freestyle

Drake has issued an statement on his OVO blog about J. Cole rapping “I’m artistic, you niggas is autistic, retarded” on his “Jodeci” freestyle.

This apology all comes after the Anti-Bullying Alliance started a petition against Cole and Drizzy that gathered over 4,000 signatures.

You can read Drizzy Drake‘s apology after the jump below, were he also mentions that the line will be removed from the song.

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.
