This Week In Hip Hop With ReddRoxx!!!
All week long we’ve been hearing about Rick Ross and his not so smart choice of words in Rocko’s U.O.E.N.O. song. His lyrics were interpreted to promote sexual violence against women and were not taken lightly. In the wake of protests of his controversial lyrics, Rick Ross will be balling a lot less due to Reebok dropping him from their endorsement contract. Some are saying it’s a little too late but Ross released the following statement:
“Before I am an artist, I am a father, a son, and a brother to some of the most cherished women in the world. So for me to suggest in any way that harm and violation be brought to a woman is one of my biggest mistakes and regrets. As an artist, one of the most liberating things is being able to paint pictures with my words. But with that comes a great responsibility. And most recently, my choice of words was not only offensive, it does not reflect my true heart. And for this, I apologize. To every woman that has felt the sting of abuse, I apologize. I recognize that as an artist I have a voice and with that, the power of influence. To the young men who listen to my music, please know that using a substance to rob a woman of her right to make a choice is not only a crime, it’s wrong and I do not encourage it. To my fans, I also apologize if I have disappointed you. I can only hope that this sparks a healthy dialogue and that I can contribute to it.”
