The Miami Heat player told Rolling Stone, "I don't want to tell anyone who I've been writing with because then it'll ruin the surprise." I'm currently writing and producing country music in the lab. We have some genuine musicians and songwriters. We currently have about 45 tracks, and I intend to go write some more.
"There will undoubtedly be an album," he declared. That's the objective. I simply cannot say when. I always have to postpone the date I want to do it because playing basketball takes precedence over everything else. [Giggles] Perhaps some of the tracks will appear on my upcoming second or third CD. I am eager to distribute it to the public.
As we previously noted, Butler minimized Wallen's use of the N-word in the Rolling Stone interviews, referring to it as a “mistake.”
Although Butler acknowledged that he hasn't watched the contentious footage of Wallen using the racist slur, he added, "Wasn't no controversy for me."
Butler continued, "I didn't look into it and I won't look into it much."
He's not a bad human being in my opinion in any way, shape, or form. Butler said, "I don't know what happened, but he's one of my friends," according to Fox News. "Clearly, it was a mistake, and although I'm not sure what was said or in what context, I think he knows better and has learned from it. Still, I think he's a wonderful human being who made a mistake."
The video showing Wallen calling one of his friends a "p**sy ass n**ga" was released by TMZ in 2021. Wallen apologized in a statement to the publication following the viral video, saying he was "embarrassed and sorry" and that he had "no excuses" for the words he had used.
