Miami rapper Rick Ross, who recently came under fire for his date rape lyrics on “UOENO,” has since (sort of) explained the lyrics. On New Orleans radio station Q93 he said, "I would never use the term rape in my records, in my lyrics. And as far as my camp, hip-hop don't condone that, the streets don't condone that, nobody condones that."
Essentially, no apology or retraction just a simple shrug saying, let’s get back to our old misogynistic ways. Nothing has changed and, what’s worse, Ross isn’t alone. Even your favorite rapper has produced vile, anti-women songs. Bring a barf bag. Yuck!
