Drake has yet to publicly address the “Circo Loco” bars and probably never will.
The rapper rarely clarifies his controversial lyrics, which explains why Yachty took it upon himself to set the record straight. But considering all the controversy surrounding the track and the connection to an ongoing legal case, maybe Drake will feel compelled to speak up. It wouldn’t be the first time that he’s expressed remorse over his lyrics.
Back in 2013 Drake apologized to Vanessa Bryant for his “bitch you wasn’t with me shooting in the gym” line on Rick Ross’ “Stay Schemin’” track.
Vanessa took issue with the lyric and addressed them in a post made to Instagram. “I love when immature kids quote a rapper that has never been friends with Kobe and knows nothing about our relationship,” she wrote. “Just shows how gullible they are. I don’t need to be in the gym. I’m raising our daughters, signing checks and taking care of everything else that pertains to our home life.”
She continued, “Since my husband... isn’t friends with Drake, we received a text of an apology forwarded from his manager. It’s done and over with and it’s now time for people to THINK before speaking.”
Complex has reached out to Drake’s camp for comment.
