rick ross Quick Quotes: Rick Ross Says Lyrics Misinterpreted For Date Rape

In the lyrics on Rocko’s track “U.O.E.N.O” Rick Ross talks about slipping Molly in lady friend’s champagne and then taking her back to his crib to wear that ass out. Molly, also referred to as Ecstasy and MDMA, is known to enhance sex and is considered a date rape drug.

I am guilty of using rib tips as a nightcap in the past, but this massive backlash doesn’t have a thing to do with the kid. While making a promo visit to Q 93.3 in New Orleans today, Rozay made his best attempt at performing damage control.

“I want to make sure this is clear that woman is the most precious gift known to man. It was a misunderstanding with a lyric, a misinterpretation where the term rape wasn’t used,” Ross said.

“I would never use the term rape in my records. As far as my camp, hip-hop don’t condone that. The streets don’t condone that. Nobody condones that.”

He also explained why he had not responded to his female fans that had expressed their concerns via Twitter. “I just wanted to reach out to all the queens that are on my timeline and all the sexy ladies, the beautiful ladies that had been reaching out to me with the misunderstanding,” he said. “We don’t condone rape and I’m not with that.”

This is not just another terrible rap lyric to be dismissed. This is an important teachable moment for young men, boys and even some full-grown adults who don’t understand consent. Who don’t understand that yes, even the girl who brought the molly and the Magnums to the party can be a victim if she was not able to decide when and how they were used. | Read more
