Drake Releases Statement Regarding His Controversial Blackface Photo

The feud between rappers Drake and Pusha T continues to remain in the headlines; what started off with Pusha’s single “Infrared” has turned into a full blown lyrical war between the two. And by now, most have heard Pusha’s scathing diss track “The Story of Adidon.”

On the single, Pusha goes hard on Drake taking shots at the 6 God’s parents, his alleged secret child with porn star Sophie B, and Noah “40” Shebib’s health issues. However, the biggest hit was the Pusha T-uncovered blackface photo of Drake, shot by photographer David Leyes. The photos were quickly met with a load of controversy and questions as to where they came from.

To clear the air, Drake has recently posted a statement to his IG Stories regarding those photos of him in blackface. Take a look at the full statement below. For more information behind the David Leyes shot, read our latest feature: “Is This Where The Pusha T Blackface Photo of Drake is From?”
