Wallen‘s success story came to a halt when a viral video of him using a racial slur surfaced, but he made a smart move, first collaborating with Lil Durk and then with Kendrick Lamar. Spotify has caused Apple and some radio stations around the country to remove their music from playlists. Wallen‘s record label, Big Loud, also suspended his contract “indefinitely” following the video.
He issued a statement to The New York Times apologizing for his behavior.
“I’m embarrassed and sorry. I used an unacceptable and inappropriate racial slur that I wish I could take back. There are no excuses to use this type of language, ever. I want to sincerely apologize for using the word. I promise to do better.”
