"I’m concerned, concerned for the safety of my family, my friends, and any human being that could fall victim to this pattern."Sorry, folks... if you're presenting the case of an innocent black man murdered by racist cops, you don't want to lead with a 300 lb. convicted felon resisting arrest with a hot gun in his waistband...
Sterling, a Bloods gang banger had quite the rap sheet before he was gunned down in an altercation with the police. The charges include battery, assault, drug and weapons charges, and being a dead beat dad.So, Drake... are you really saying there are so many similarities between you and Alton Sterling that you actually fear for your life? Or did your publicist just hand you this list of happy horseshit?
UPDATE: Gee, Drake, what about the victims...
...at your big Toronto do?
Drake is certainly entitled to be concerned about the incidents in the United States but it took him 10 days to comment on the shooting at his own party in Canada.**********
In a song called All Charged Up he raps “Niggers snitching on us without no interrogation. I stay silent ‘cause we at war.” In another the song No Tellin, he says, “Yeah, police comin’ ‘round lookin’ for some help, On a case they gotta solve, we never help ‘em.”
He wrote he is “concerned for the safety of my family, my friends and any human being that could fall victim to this pattern.” He would know. But those slain at his event in Toronto were not killed by police.
Nor were the 23 people shot to death in Toronto so far in 2016 — a 109% higher number of victims compared to last year.
UPDATE2: What big brains in rapperland...
...chose to die on this shit-smeared hill?
"In the wake of 37-year-old Alton Sterling’s death, many people within the hip hop community have come forth to express their outrage and disbelief."Alton Sterling was the stuff of your worst nightmares, guys. It's why you all have gated mansions and round the clock bodyguards.
This is why precisely we don't take you seriously.

...and the totally predictable "law of unintended consequences"...
"Baltimore, a city of 622,000 people, has long been blighted by deep-seated poverty and drug crime in some neighborhoods. The city saw a 63 percent surge in homicides last year, with 344 people slain."Citizens of Baltimore... remember, you did this.
