Rick Ross “We don’t condone rape and I’m not with that”

(AllHipHop News) Rick Ross has attempted to quell controversy and clarify his position on a recent rap lyric he recited that seems to advocate rape.

The new interview was conducted with Q93.3 in New Orleans and the rapper had nothing but praise for women. He also charged that the lyrics, originating from a Rocko song, may be misunderstood.

Ross explained:

“There are certain things you can’t Tweet and certain things you want people to hear and I want to make sure this is clear..woman is the most precious gift known to man. You understand. There was a misunderstanding with a lyric or a misinterpretation. The term rape wasn’t used. I would never use the term rape in my records. Hip-Hop don’t condone that, the streets don’t condone that. Nobody condones that. I just want to reach out to all the queens on my timeline, the beautiful ladies that were reaching out to me…we don’t condone rape and I’m not with that.”

The explanation comes on the heels of efforts by Change.org, an activist network, to get the rapper to apologize for the lyrics from “You Don’t Even Know.” Ross 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.”

The full interview is below.

    I love Rick Ross’s music and respect him as a business man but enough is enough I rode with him when it came out he was a c.o. and denied it, I even rode with him when the real Rick Ross wanted sue over stealing his image but come on man now he’s talking about putting molly in a woman’s champagne and how he took it home and enjoyed that and she didn’t even know it but if she didnt know it that means she couldn’t possibly willingly consent so that particular context of his content supports rape culture and instead of apologising he goes on to say in his defense he didnt use the term rape he dont support that fuck outta here if he would of apologised I would of respected that but to try and play ppl for dumb and not acknowledge your wrong doing says alot about your character. I feel bad for Ross’s fans cause they have it the worse trying to defend this guy as for me I aint riding no more im doing like trey off boyz n the hood im getting out the car.
