Drake Forced To Explain Blackface Photo Of Him That Went Viral

The music industry is in a fever this week over the pure and unadulterated brutality of an ongoing diss-track rap battle between Pusha-T and Drake. Drake released a diss-track (aka lyrically ruthless song that meticulously picks apart one's most shameful, private moments) titled, "Duppy" this week which was a volatile response to Pusha-T's "Infrared" single off the new Daytona album. 

Pusha-T proceeded to go OFF at the mention of his fiancee, and called out Drake for fathering an unclaimed child with a porn star in a song with an album cover that depicts Drake wearing minstrel-style blackface.

    Text - champaghepa3042018, 10:55 PM I know everyone is enjoying the circus but want to clarify this image in question. This was not from a clothing brand shoot or my music career. This picture is from 2007, a time in my life where I was an actor and I was working on a project that was about young black actors struggling to get roles, being stereotyped and type cast. The photos represented how African Americans were once wrongfully portrayed in entertainment.

    Text - Me and my best friend at the time Mazin Elsadig who is also an actor from Sudan were attempting to use our voice to bring awareness to the issues we dealt with alll the time as black actors at auditions. This was to highlight and raise our frustrations with not always getting a fair chance in the industry and to make a point that the struggle for black actors had not changed much

    Text - Mona Follow @MoSilkyMo I knew Drake's statement would be just that. I'm not sitting here thinking that man would put on blackface a a joke or to entertain People will either accept the explanation or not. It doesn't bother me.
