Accountability. That’s the word of the day. While I do think we pick and chose what rap lyrics to get upset about, I can’t say that there’s any reason why we shouldn’t hold more rappers accountable to what they have on their songs. Such is the case with Rick Ross, who’s received a lot of backlash recently from some rap lyrics of his that suggest rape. MTV reports that during a recent radio interview on 93.3 in New Orleans Rick Ross claims that his lyrics have been misconstrued.
The song called U.O.E.N.O. appears on the Rocko’s mixtape and this is what Rick Ross says:
“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,” Rozay rapped, name-dropping the popular party drug which is often said to enhance euphoria and sexuality.
And THIS is his response to the controversy:
“There was a misunderstanding with a lyric, a misinterpretation…I would never use the term ‘rape’ in my records and as far as my camp. Hip-hop don’t condone that, the streets don’t condone that,nobody condones that,” he said. “So I just wanted to reach out to all my 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.”
Uhhhh…I don’t know about you guys, but it sounds like Rick Ross is saying that it’s not about rape because he doesn’t use the word ‘rape’. But the lyric clearly says he’s drugging a girl’s drink, then taking her home to ‘enjoy that’, then he points out that she doesn’t know what’s happening to her. So if that’s not rape, then what is? If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck…
