Ebro Darden Says Drake Never Says Anything About Black Issues
On July 12, Hot 97's Ebro Darden discussed how Drake never speaks up about Black issues while conversing with Nadeska Alexis and Lowkey on Apple Music's Rap Life Review series. In the clip, which can be seen below, the three hosts of the series spoke about Drake's shade toward Childish Gambino's 2018 single during Drizzy's set at the It's All a Blur Tour at Chicago's United Center. By the 19:23-mark of the video, Ebro Darden expressed that Drake has yet to take a stand for justice.
"Drake, who has never shown up, and y'all know I'm the biggest Drake fan on this show," Ebro Darden said in the video. "Drake has never shown up to have anything to say about anything going on in society with Black folks or anything other than himself."
The Rap Life Review hosts added that they don't expect Drake to speak on these important topics within the Black community because he hasn't done so in the past.
