The following is an extract from the post:
“I’m not going to hide behind a mental disease to avoid accepting responsibility.”
It goes on to say:
“My actions warrant criticism, and I’d want to apologize once again for failing the many individuals who have attempted to assist me. I couldn’t break out of it after years of drug addiction, and I took hundreds of doses of tranquilizers and painkillers to avoid reality.”
Meanwhile, Bully Da Ba$tard is not the only High School Rapper contender that has lately been in trouble. On the 22nd of last month, rapper Choi Ha-min, who came in second place in the competition, was sentenced to one year and six months in jail and three years of probation for child abuse.
