Fresh off responding to Yasiin Bey saying that he’s pop and not Hip Hop, Drake sent a message about the folks reporting the news.
“Journalistic world cashing out on negativity and discouraging the youth from finding their way now more than ever,” he wrote on Instagram. “The noise is all calculated keep pushing forward.”
The “God’s Plan” creator wrote his words over a clip of former University of Alabama football coach Nick Saban saying that young people need room to make mistakes.
“When somebody does something wrong, everybody wants to know how you’re gonna punish the guy. But there’s not enough for 19 and 20-year-old kids, people saying, ‘Why don’t you give them another chance?” says Saban in the 2014 video. “I feel strong about this now, really strong about every criticism out there about every guy that’s 19 years old that makes a mistake and you all kill him.”
Is Drake right? Is the media making it difficult for young people to find themselves by learning from their mistakes?
