N.O.R.E. Apologizes For George Floyd ‘Drink Champs’ Comments
I Didn’t Want Him To Walk Out!

N.O.R.E. called “The Breakfast Club” on Monday morning to apologize multiple times for the comments Kanye West made about George Floyd on the latest episode of “Drink Champs” his team put out over the weekend.
The “Drink Champs” host was in full damage control mode, claiming that he didn’t know Ye’s statements would be very hurtful to listeners.
N.O.R.E. says he later checked Kanye for the GF and “White Lives Matter” remarks later in the interview … but says he was too drunk to make an impactful moment. He also claimed that he uploaded the wrong edit and didn’t go through it properly… something he claims the team will rectify in the future.
The veteran rapper shamelessly admitted he didn’t want Ye to walk out of the interview if he was silenced … a la “The Breakfast Club’s” infamous Birdman interview where he cursed them out and demanded “Respek. “
Kanye West is spreading reprehensible lies about George Floyd’s death. Kanye West is a disgrace.

BC also grilled N.O.R.E. on why he conducted the interview to start … citing Tucker Carlson and HBO’s ‘The Shop’s recent debacles.

He also noted that Loud Records founder Steve Rifkind and several other Jewish associates of his were in the room and used them as gauge meters for Ye’s anti-Semitic rants.
N.O.R.E. says he previously spoke to Kanye that he would go on record to denounce Ye’s comments and apologized to Stephen Jackson … who may have cooked him anonymously on Instagram while slamming Ye.

Charlamagne seized an opportunity to hit him with a “told-you-so” zinger … to which N.O.R.E. He admitted that he had failed as a journalist and he complied with the request.
While one cannot defame the dead, the family of #GeorgeFloyd is considering suit for Kanye’s false statements about the manner of his death.
Claiming Floyd died from fentanyl not the brutality established criminally and civilly undermines & diminishes the Floyd family’s fight.

Following the interview, George Floyd family attorney Lee Merritt says they’re looking into potential lawsuits to thwart Kanye’s comments … another reason for N.O.R.E. to backpedal like a strong safety.
