New Petition Compels Rick Ross To Apologize For “U.O.E.N.O” Lyric

Earlier this week, Rick Ross found himself in hot water when he was criticized over a lyric in Rocko’s “U.O.E.N.O.,” in which he raps, “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.”

It appears that the issue is far from dead, however, as a new petition has surfaced urging the MMG impresario to apologize for the lyric. Change.org has published a petition demanding that Rozay publicly apologize for “glorifying ‘date rape’” in the song.

After news of the controversy broke, Ross took to New Orleans’ Q93 to clarify the lyric, saying that he never meant to insinuate rape in the song. He added that neither he nor anyone in his MMG camp condone rape.

“I want to make sure this is clear: woman is the most precious gift known to man,” he said. “There was a misunderstanding with the lyric, a misinterpretation where the term ‘rape’ wasn’t used. I would never use the term ‘rape’ in my records, and as far my camp, hip-hop don’t condone that. The streets don’t condone that. Nobody condones that. I just wanted to reach out to all the queens that are on my timelines, all the sexy ladies, the beautiful ladies that have been reaching out to me…we don’t condone rape and we’re not with that.”

    I think he should apologize for forcing us to think about him having sex. That’s still in my nightmares.

    Apparently, according to Mr Ross, drugging a girl and then having sex with her isn’t rape!

    Ross… you dumbass, putting something in a girl’s drink and fucking her is RAPE. Smdh

  • farkface

    He has the right to rap about whatever he wants. Don’t like it? Don’t buy his fucking album. Politically correct moralfags need to shut the fuck up. He doesnt owe you or anyone else an apology.

    Now I don’t like Rick Ross, or his music, or his luscious man tits, and I don’t like that he’s slippin’ shit into drinks, but could be worse. I mean if it was ‘Chloroform all in her champagne, she ain’t even know it/I took her home and I enjoyed that, fucked that bitch unconscious’ I’d understand. I’m actually just pissed that there’s all these invisible lines that the media and society will have with popular rap while still tolerating all the bullshit lyrics. No decrying Ross’ support of drug life, Jay-Z’s misogyny or YMCMB’s murder sprees, but slipping a molly and ‘OOOOOOOOH SHIT HANG RICK ROSS THIS RAPIST NEGRO MUST PAY FOR HIS CRIMES’. Fuck media and the hype, just don’t support this bullshit music so it doesn’t lead to this in the first place.
