Drake has recently found himself embroiled in controversy due to his disparaging remarks about Childish Gambino's acclaimed track, "This Is America." The latest individual to express their disapproval of Drake's comments is none other than Ebro Darden, a prominent radio personality.
In a passionate outburst on Apple's Rap Life Review, Ebro unleashed his frustration, highlighting Drake's notable absence in addressing social issues within the Black community.
As he addressed his co-hosts, Ebro, who openly declares himself as the show's biggest Drake fan, lamented, “Drake has never shown up to have anything to say about anything going on in society with Black folks or anything other than himself.”
Ebro's criticism didn't stop there. He further emphasized, "You’re also one of the most successful rappers we’ve ever seen, and we love you for that… The song’s called ‘This Is America.’ You’re Canadian, bro!” Ebro and his fellow hosts engaged in a discussion, acknowledging that it's acceptable if Drake chooses not to delve into social issues.
