Rick Ross Apologizes for Lyrics ‘Interpreted as Rape’ on ‘U.O.E.N.O.,’ Debuts New Video
“I dont condone rape.Apologies for the #lyric interpreted as rape. #BOSS [sic],” Rozay wrote on his Twitter page Thursday afternoon. He then apologized to Reebok and those protesting his endorsement with the sneaker company.
“Apologies to my many business partners,who would never promote violence against women. @ReebokClassics @ultraviolet,” he continued.
Ross has been at the center of media attention since last week over the lyrics, “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.”
The rapper originally tried to do damage control during an interview with New Orleans radio station Q93.3 stating, “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.”
Rozay also released a new video promoting his forthcoming album, ‘Mastermind,’ and gave a behind-the-scenes look at a his upcoming Reebok commercial.
“Sometimes I look in the mirror, I can’t believe I’m alive, disrespectful to n—-s who want to take me alive,” raps Rozay in his freestyle over Kendrick Lamar‘s ‘Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe.’
Should the ‘God Forgives, I Don’t’ creator be forgiven now?
