Rick Ross Date Rape Rap Controversy

After being heavily criticised for the lyrics of his latest single ‘U.O.E.N.O’, hip-hop artist Rick Ross has stood up to explain his words in a radio interview with the local station in New Orleans. He came under fire after he released a single with the dubious 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.” For those who don’t know, Molly is the slang term for a drug often used for rape.

This quickly led to an outrage on the social media, and in no time a petition was set up to convince Reebok, the company which has Rick Ross as one of their spokesmen, to end their contract. People believed that a company like Reebok, which reaches out to many young adults, should not be involved with a rapper who openly brags about having raped a woman.

In the interview, Rick Ross was very clear to state that it was just a misunderstanding, and said “I would never use the term rape in my records, in my lyrics. And as far as my camp, hip-hop don’t condone that, the streets don’t condone that, nobody condones that.” What exactly the lyrics did refer to, however, has not been mentioned yet.

Eventually, the artist concluded by saying “I just want to reach out to all the 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.”

To his credit, he also mentioned that he was glad that the media was around to correct misunderstandings like these, and he made clear that he would rather talk about something like this in words than by writing a tweet, which is why he appeared on the radio in the first place.

One question is still left unanswered, though: what exactly did he mean with those lyrics?
