Syracuse University has dropped rapper Ace Hood from its entertainment for Friday's Orange Madness event, which traditionally kicks off the basketball season.
Officials say the event is still scheduled to go on, with both men's and women's teams set to scrimmage, but Ace Hood will no longer be the headliner. SU spokesperson Pete Moore says the university shares concerns about the appropriateness of the act. Hood's lyrics are known for explicit and violent content. No replacement has been announced.
