Rap-A-Lot Records CEO, J. Prince, has come out in defence of Joe Rogan following N-word controversy.
With podcaster, Joe Rogan, facing all kinds of heat over his use of the N-word and other racial slurs in the recent past, a major figure in the hip-hop industry seems to be forgiving over the controversial podcast host.
“Joe Rogan is not a racist,” J. Prince wrote in an Instagram post. “I know this brother. It takes a sincere individual to admit when they are wrong and have fucked up about a situation. As you can hear he’s done that and I forgive him because I never want to become one of those people that are filled with un-forgiveness and hate, that we complain about all the time.”
“Let this be an example to others of the sensitivity of the word ‘n***a’ being said by anybody other than a n****a lol,” J. Prince added.
Rogan, however, issued an apology on Instagram on Saturday morning, saying his past use of the N-word has been the “most regretful and shameful thing I’ve ever had to talk about publicly.”
“There’s a video that’s out that’s a compilation of me saying the N-word,” Rogan said. “It’s a video that’s made of clips taken out of context of me of 12 years of conversations on my podcast, and it’s all smushed together. And it looks f**king horrible, even to me.”
