(AllHipHop News) Many people in the Hip Hop community including Dame Dash, Combat Jack, and Jay Electronica called out Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg publicly after the radio personality accused Public Enemy’s Chuck D of being an internet troll and not contributing to the culture in recent years. Rosenberg has now used his “The Realness” segment to apologize to the legendary emcee/activist.
The “Ebro In The Morning” co-host began his mea culpa by mentioning going to see Do The Right Thing as a child and hearing the P.E. song “Fight The Power.”
Rosenberg said in part:
That wasn’t the first time I heard Public Enemy, but that was the first time Chuck D’s voice truly affected me. So to think that 25 years later I would have a voice in this culture that some people would actually listen to a little bit is truly a blessing. Something I’m very thankful for. To have used that voice in any way to show what was perceived as public disrespect to the great Chuck D is something that I am truly regretful for.
