  • 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.
