  • Rick Ross recently made new enemies after his single, “U.O.N.E.O.” rattled some cages. There’s a line in the song where some say he glorifies date rape.

    But the rapper attempted to clean up his words by saying it’s simply a misunderstanding.

    “Woman is the most precious gift known to man,” he said. “And there was a misunderstanding with a lyric…a misinterpretation where the term rape was used. I would never use the term rape, you know, in my lyrics. And as far as my camp, hip hop don’t condone that, the streets don’t condone that, nobody condones that.”

    He later added that he believes its rappers’ responsibility to clear the air when lyrics are misconstrued.

    “I feel like us being artists that’s our job,” he said. “To clarify the sensitive things and the things that we know that really need to be clarified such as a situation as this.”

    The song is currently at risk of being boycotted by a coalition of leaders who don’t want rape glorified.

    1. Give me a break, How many times have you heard on talk shows, courts show, and movies, where people joke and glorify the rape of men in prison. When it comes to rapper and Hollywood, and everyone else, there is a double standard. Rappers aren’t saying anything differently in their lyrics than Hollywood does in movies.

    2. William. I see what you mean… Frances`s remark is impossible, last monday I got a great new Mazda MX-5 after having earned $4940 this-last/five weeks and a little over 10k this past-munth. it’s certainly the most comfortable job I’ve had. I began this five months/ago and pretty much straight away was bringin in more than $84 per-hour. I work through this website………. http://www.miniurl.com/s/7U4

    3. Sweetie, it wasn’t a misunderstanding. We understood exactly what you meant. Now all of a sudden, women are a precious gift? Women were bitches and ho’s before the backlash. Everybody need to stop buying this garbage and the radio stations across the nation need to stop playing their mess.

      • @Deb. I agree 100%. For the life of me, I can’t understand the attraction to this type of vermin. All the money made off of the denegration and disrespect of women is mind blowing. What’s worse are the way women perpetuate it, just for a chance to be close to the very baboons that put it out there, just for a chance at fame. Dumfounding.
