Ebro Darden Slams Drake for Never Speaking Out on Black Issues Despite Being A Influential Rapper - WhatsOnRap

Ebro's Disappointment: Drake's Silence on Black Issues.Ebro Calls Out Drake for Lack of Engagement on Black Issues.

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. 

However, they deemed it disheartening and "whack" when he resurfaces to criticize a song that was released five years ago. To add insult to injury, during his ongoing "It's All A Blur Tour," Drake incorporated a headline on his stage that read, “The Overrated and Over Awarded Hit Song ‘This Is America’ Originally A Drake Diss.”

It turns out that Childish Gambino, also known as Donald Glover, confirmed in a recent interview that the song initially started as a diss towards Drake. However, once the initial jest had subsided, Gambino recognized the song's potential and decided to pursue it with a purpose. 

After this revelation, Drake couldn't resist taking potshots at the track, projecting a ticker onto his stage that taunted the song. Ebro firmly believes that "This Is America" holds great significance within American culture, particularly in terms of racial dynamics and issues of police brutality. 

Consequently, he views Drake's sudden interest in criticizing a five-year-old song, especially after discovering its intended humorous diss towards him, as both pathetic and incongruous with the Canadian rapper's established brand.
