J-Hood Apologizes To D-Block

J-HoodAfter months of throwing verbal jabs via the media, YouTube videos and a slew of diss tracks toward D-Block, former member J-Hood seems to have had a change of heart.

In a letter, sent via his publicist, the young rapper apologizes for his actions over the past several months, calling a lot of the things he had done and said mistakes.

"First of all I personally would like to apologize to all the real fans out there, all the true hip-hop heads, and lyric followers for my role playing in this whole ordeal because it's honestly something that you shouldn't have had to witness," J-Hood began in the latter.

"As a man I can say I truly made a couple mistakes and went over board with a couple things, but as a man we are entitled to make mistakes because we aren't mistake prone. ... Me dragging my chain was obviously one of the mistakes I made that evidently had the people upset, and like I said in a previous interview, I admit that was a mistake and I went overboard," he continued.

Hood went on to point out how the animosity started with Sheek Louch, but then to the entire crew after responses came from Styles P. He says he responded like most any man in the streets, but quickly pointed out that "two wrongs don't make a right."

"Even though I'm entitled and have every right to feel how I felt, two wrongs don't necessarily make a right and some of my actions were just that," said Hood. "I will eternally be appreciative to The LOX for giving me an opportunity to be heard, period, point blank. But I just couldn't keep living with the fact of knowing I'm representing something false on top of not even being compensated well for it."

He continues by pointing out mistakes on both sides, before sending good words D-Block's way and admitting he doesn't want to continue beefing.

"I'm just honestly at a point in my life where I'm past that mentally. I mean the whole grudge thing, it's no space in my mind for that anymore because I'm on a whole other level," said Hood.

"I just want to wish them the best at what ever they are doing now and in their future ventures. Hopefully we can work out our differences," he added.

Will D-Block accept his apology? Only time will tell, but according to what Sheek told us in March, it doesn't seem to be an option. He did also wish him the best though.

"He has tremendous potential and could do some big things in the future. He'll do it without us though," Sheek told BallerStatus.com. "He's abandoned and I hate he did things the way he did. We'll never, ever work with him again, but I still wish him well."
