Rick Ross Continues To Apologize Via Twitter For “LyricsInterpreted As Rape”
Rick Ross has faced considerable amount of heat for his
lyric on Rocko’s “U.O.E.N.O. (You Ain’t even Know It),” where he
“Put molly all in her champagne, she ain’t even know it / I took her home and enjoy that, she ain’t even know it.”
The track caused a radio station to ban Ross, and to start a petition asking the rapper to apologize. In an attempt to clear up the meaning of his lyrics, Ross attempted to explain the rhyme on the Q 93.3 radio show.
“I want to make sure this is clear,” said Ross. “Woman is the most precious gift known to man, you understand? It was a misunderstanding with a lyric, a misinterpretation where the term
rape wasn’t used. I would never use the word rape in my records.”
Ross reassured that no one in the Maybach Music Group camp was in
agreement with rape.
“And as far as my camp, Hip Hop don’t
condone that, streets don’t condone that. Nobody condones that, you
understand me? I just wanted to reach out to all the queens that’s
on my timeline, all the sexy ladies, the beautiful ladies that have
been reaching out to me about the misunderstanding. We don’t
condone rape and I’m not with that.”
