Rick Ross under fire for rape lyrics; gives half-assed apology!

Once again Rick Ross is in deep shit for what he says in his rap lyrics.

Last time it was for mentioning a drug cartel he was not affiliated with and almost getting arrested for it. Then it was using the name of a known drug dealer as his stage name and getting sued for it.

And of course working as a correctional officer before becoming a rap star, but (as 50 Cent put it) “base his entire career on writing material from a drug dealer’s perspective.”

Fiddy, I couldn’t agree with you more with that last line, but I digress…

The Miami rapper’s latest “rap-bars-of-bullshit” to hit the fan? A guest spot on MC Rocko’s song, U.O.E.N.O (which is supposed to stand for “You ain’t even know it”).

“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.”

Of course, Ross experienced extreme backlash and negative press for his lyrics…as he should!

So like any celebrity in danger of losing endorsements (A.K.A money), Rozay did a few interviews to try and save his fat ass from going down in flames. He only made matters worse with his half-assed apology.

His next step, use Twitter to do some social networking PR magic; also didn’t work.

Yes, he apologized to his those who MISINTERPRETED his lyrics and all of his BUSINESS ASSOCIATES!!!

You can’t get more ignorant than that.[IMG]

Just to be clear about the above lyrics, Ross states that he put a non-medicated drug called “Molly” (a slang term for a psychoactive drug known as MDMA ) in the female’s Champagne drink without her knowledge.

He then states in the next line that he “took her home”,  and “enjoyed” her company apparently, without her knowing it.

It doesn’t take a genius to realize that Ross is referring to date raping someone in the song, but because he doesn’t come right out and use the word “rape,’ he’s playing the “you’re misinterpreting my poetic rap lyrics” card.

Thank goodness we still have rap pioneers like Talib Kweli who was willing to come forward and speak on the matter; unlike most people in Hip Hop.

Kweli comes in around the 10 minute mark.

 


What do you guys think?

Are Rick Ross’ lyrics just being misinterpreted? Are we trying too hard to censor music, or did a fat ass, damn near 40 year old man just rap about date rape?
