Some unfortunate news has been brought to the limelight surrounding a rapper than many people call their favorite. Rick Ross is getting some heat for yet another instance in which he has made himself out to be a fool, adding to the constant oppression that women in the music business face each and every day.
A couple years back, Ross had quite the disturbing set of lyrics on his track “U.O.E.N.O.” The 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” perfectly demonstrate what’s being discussed here without any further explanation. The saddest part of that incident was that the lyrics probably went unnoticed by many listeners and Ross continued to be praised.
Now, even in 2017, Ross continues to objectify women seemingly without any care. Just yesterday, in an interview with The Breakfast Club, Angela Yee asked the rapper if he would ever sign a female rapper to his Maybach Music Group label, and he came back to say,
“You know, I never did it because I always thought I would end up fucking the female rapper, fucking the business up. I’m so focused on the business. I gotta be honest with you! She looking good, I’m spending so much money on the photo shoots, I gotta fuck a couple of times.”
The full footage is seen below and shows everyone in the room laughing at his comment. This is an unlucky thing to happen in the hip-hop culture right now. As Rick Ross is a legend in many eyes, it’s important that he stands as a role model for future rappers and the rest of society. Unfortunately, it seems like he has failed this time around. We expected more, Rick!
