Rick Ross talks alleged date rape lyrics
The Teflon Don is in a sticky situation!
Rick Ross is trying to clear up the controversy of some very questionable lyrics in “U.O.E.N.O.” The rapper has come under fire for allegedly rapping about date rape when he rhymed, “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.”
After getting heavily criticized for the line, Q93 dj Wild Wayne confronted him about the song, and Rick said, “I feel like us being artists, that’s our job to clarify the sensitive things, the things that we really know need to be clarified such as a situation as this.”
At the crux of his argument was that he feels people misunderstood what he said in the song because he never used the word rape. Although it was implied his defense is that he never explicitly stated that’s what he was rapping about.
“Woman is the most precious gift known to man. I would never use the term ‘rape’ in my records and as far as my camp. Hip-hop don’t condone that, the streets don’t condone that, nobody condones that,” Rick stated. “So I just wanted to reach out to all my queens that’s on my timeline, all the sexy ladies, the beautiful ladies that have been reaching out to me with the misunderstanding: We don’t condone rape, and I’m not with that.”
