Rapper Rocko has made a choice to drop Rick Ross from his hit single “U.O.E.N.O.” because of his controversial lyrics (to hear the song, click here).

As a result, Rick Ross has been shunned by people all over. Rocko releasing Rick Ross from the song is a very smart decision for his career in transitioning into a mainstream rapper.

Rocko recently called in to Hot 97 to speak about the situation. In the interview, he states:

“Because of the type of traction that the record has as far as radio, it puts me in a position where I have to change it. At the present moment, I have like six different verses from all types of different, talented artists, some multi-platinum. Some might have even have bigger accomplishments like Grammys and things of that nature.”

Rocko also speaks on not having an idea about how much controversy would come out of Rick Ross’s lyrics. He stands by Ross by saying that he has a right to rap on anything he wants but he had to make the right decision.
