    Mr. Botkin has also issued an apology. I think the Christians taking part in the hip-hop culture do need to be criticized is some cases, but these off-the-cuff answers did nothing to help that.

    Thank you re: Mr. Botkin.
    FYI: he did not apologize for believing his statement to be true. He retracted it from generalizing to all rappers to some unidentified group.
