Don’t confuse that for an apology, though. “I don’t wanna take him off,” Rocko told Hot97, but he decided to “because of the type of traction that the record has,” by which he means “because of the outrage in response to Rick Ross’s date-rape verse.” Not that he mentioned it specifically or offered any sort of explanation beyond this is bad for business. But no, it won’t be on the remix.
