Meek Mill Defends Rick Ross While Others Calls For Reebok To Fire Him
Via TMZ reports:
Reebok supports abusers by supporting Rick Ross … that’s the way a leading women’s group and scores of rape survivors see it.
UltraViolet — a women’s rights group 400,000 strong — is incensed the company is not dumping Ross in the wake of his new song, which fantasizes about date rape.
The song — “U.O.E.N.O.” — has a line, “Put Molly all in the champagne. She ain’t even know it. I took her home and I enjoy that. She ain’t even know it.”
Molly is slang for Ecstasy.
The group — along with 150 rape survivors — grouses, “Every single day that Reebok continues rewarding Rick Ross with a lucrative endorsement deal, Reebok is condoning rape.”
We reached out to Reebok today, but we got crickets.
As for Ross … he issued a lukewarm apology, saying the lyrics were misunderstood and he never used the word rape.
Sometimes you don’t have to use the word, when the thought is clear.
“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”
Hit the flip to see what label-mate and fellow struggle rapper Meek Mill had to say to defend Officer Ricky…
Despite the protests and petitions against Ross, the fact fellow rapper Talib Kweli has also called him out, and Rozay himself has offered a half-assed apology for the line, MMG’s Meek Mill is right by his side. Meek went on D.C. Radio and defended what his boss had to saying, claiming it was just art and pointing out that Biggie once said some horrible things too.
I don’t even care about nobody criticizing no lyrics. People rap about killing stuff all day. Biggie said, “R*pe your kid, throw her over the bridge” back then, it was nothing, it was just hip-hop. Now you got all these weirdos on these social sites voicing their opinion about something anybody say. I don’t care, I’m from the hood. I never really cared about what nobody saying in no rap. Rap’s always been talking about killing, drugs, all types of stuff. So you can’t just criticize no one thing nobody say. It’s imaginary visual. If a writer write about somebody getting r*ped in a movie, that mean he a r*pist or he want girls to get r*ped? No, he just wrote about that in a movie.
