Rick Ross continues to face criticism over his lyrics on Rocko’s song, “U.O.E.N.O.” On the song, Rick Ross raps, “Put molly all in her champagne, she ain’t even know it, I took her home and I enjoyed that, she ain’t even know it.”
Several groups have protested Ross and are calling for Reebok to drop his contract.
Ross responded to the controversy last week by saying, “Woman is the most precious gift known to man,” he said. “And there was a misunderstanding with a lyric…a misinterpretation where the term rape was–wasn’t used. I would never use the term rape, you know, in my lyrics. And as far as my camp, hip hop don’t condone that, the streets don’t condone that, nobody condones that.”
Talib Kweli recently responded to Rick Ross’ lyrics and reaction to the lyrics. “I don’t care if Rick Ross is 40 years old — he’s a misguided 40-year-old person,” Talib Kweli said during an interview with Lamont Hill.
“Rick Ross condoned rape in that song … and he should apologize, and his apology that he offered was unacceptable,” he said.
Should Reebook drop Rick Ross from his endorsement deal, or has the issue gone too far.
