Rocko On Rick Ross And Reebok: “It Wasn’t Fair”

(AllHipHop News) Even though he removed Rick Ross from his now hit record, Rocko is riding with the Boss and chiding Reebok for dropping Rick Ross as a sponsor.

He recently told MTV that the sneaker brand should have stuck with Rozay since he helped bring their kicks to the hood.
“As far as the Reebok thing, I don’t think that was fair because what he brought to Reebok. People in my neighborhood, in my city, they’re back wearing Reeboks. It was a cardinal sin to wear Reebok before Ross started promoting ’em. Ross stepped in and he branded ’em and he got the urban

market back in to ’em.”

It was Rocko’s song “U.O.E.N.O,” albeit a Ross lyric, that started all the controversy. But, under the pressure, Rocko offered up new versions of the song with Young Jeezy, Wiz Khalifa and Future.

In an exclusive interview with Hot 97, Rocko further explained why he made the move to replace Rick Ross.

    a lot of people didnt know who rocko was until them controversial ross lines, but its cool for him to drop ross and not reebok??? rappers are so contradictory nowadays, its pathetic

    • corey mack

      If you knew anything about Rocko you know he wouldnt be rocking no Reeboks, “these $1000 pair of shoes you aint even know it”

      • justmythoughts

        wtf does rocko rocking reeboks have to do with anything that was stated on this page?

      • corey mack

        You said it was cool for Rocko to drop Ross and not Reebok in your original post that I replied to. Do you not read the nonsense you post?

      • justmythoughts

        nonsense? rocko dropped ross off his song, correct? this was even before reebok dropped ross….so why is rocko knockin reebok for droppin ross…get it together bruh, youre reachin….miss me with the grammar talk cause in youre original post that i replied to, you clearly stated “rocko WOULDNT be rocking NO reeboks”, which means he would be rocking reeboks, checkmate

      • corey mack

        OK????????? U.O.E.N.O

      • justmythoughts

        apparently i dont, i gotta stop smoking this good cause i have yet to realize any nonsense i posted on this page, let alone this site

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        lol

    • It’s called being fake!

      • hoeyuno

        I can’t believe after all the stupid shit ross has done this one fuccin rhyme is what’s gonna do him in. The motha fuccin machine has spoken tho!! His shows getting cancelled, sponsors droppin and ppls erasing him from records like his name was canibus!!!

      • That would be some iLL ‘chet!

        The little things in life.

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        true but them little things have been snow ballin for rick ross … its only so much bs an gold artist can continue to spew out there … lil wayne gets away with it cause hes been breaking sales records and ish …. with #s like that someone whos looking to capitolize off your success will come running …… look how long it took to knock fif off his square but he made so much $$ he still aint out the game yet … hes just not everyones current favorite

      • Real Spill…check it, the 5 wealthiest rappers…Diddy, Dre’, Jigga, Fif, etc….all made their fortunes outside of music.

      • thisisafakename

        Y eah you think sucking and being a CO would of done him in but it turns out a vague line about rape is all we needed to kill the giant.

      • hoeyuno

        My point exactly… and this is the first incident that I don’t agree with. Rapperst all the time and part of the reason we love it…..

    • hoeyuno

      I’m sure the label made that decision. Trying to save a hit.

      • justmythoughts

        youre right but technically speakin he didnt have to take him off or even acknowledge that he was being took off of his song, just drop a remix n leave it at that

  • bigdoe6

    Fair?????? Was it fair for him to steal someone name, brand, identity, and make millions from it? Last word you want to mention is Fair. Use another word.

    • Bumpy Johnson

      word wtf this nigga on ..Mollys.?

      • justmythoughts

        yea, ross prolly slipped it in his champagne n he aint even know it

      • Bumpy Johnson

        hahahhaahahahahahha

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        lol man yall never cease to amaze me with the jokes LOL

      • thisisafakename

        haahahha you the greatest sir.

      • lmao!!

    • keylon jackson

      you mad?

    • Dick Pimples

      Yeah, Rocko clearly has an I.Q. of about -769. LMAO. He definitely chose the wrong word. Another thing that isn’t fair is slipping some chick a molly, and taking her home to rape her. Maybe somebody in a pair of reeboks should slip Rocko a molly, and proceed to stuff a gay mans butt plug in his mouth. Then, ask Rocko to define fair. LOL

    • hustleman

      So Freeway had a brand? Rozay used nothing more than the name Rick Ross, not even the Freeway nickname. Outside of where Freeway dealt drugs he was NOT known nation/world wide. Besides, there are plenty people named Rick Ross in the world. Rozay got millions because of his music, not because of his name, get over it! People didn’t buy/like his music because they thought he was a jailed drug dealer! I guess Irv Gotti somehow made millions because people thought he was related to John Gotti, or Noreaga of CNN made money because people thought he was the Panamanian dictator…Unreal!!

      • Lyve Wire

        real shit

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        neither was the real 50 cent but supposely someone can correct me if im wrong but Curtis Jackson still did something for the original owner of his name …..

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        real cats do real things … but i think that whole william roberts vs the real rick ross ish was a good relationship that went sour …… like alot of situations do …. it just so happens for the real rick ross … @ this point his name is all he got so he will probably never let that one go …..

      • bigdoe6

        Freeway got a clearance to use it. The man gave him permission. Do your research before you speak.

    “To Those Much Is Given, Much More is Expected”. #Boss Right?

  • The Undisputed Leader

    A lot of street niggaz have mutual respect and understanding for each other through ignorant teachings and mindsets. Not every street nigga or hood nigga is a dummy, definitely not, but sometimes these dudes really can’t identity what the important issues are and what the important issues aren’t.

    In this case, Ross bringin’ Reebok money in is not important. And actually, the fact that the people are buyin’ those shoes is bad since Rick Ross is promoting them even though it seems like a plus to them, because Rick Ross has way more influence then someone like him should ever have over people. I’m not hatin’ but fareal, these nigga’z ways are bad for humanity, and shouldn’t be glorified

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

      sad but true … reebok was here before rick ross and they will be here long after lol .. but thats the mind state alot of these artist have …………………. most of them arent there because they can boost the sales … they bring on these athletes and artist because they are relevant ….. they want to attach thier product with a current face …. reebok nike etc been making $$ for years …. they probably still spending money from 88 for real ……

      • The Undisputed Leader

        lol, probably…

  • u remove him from ur song then have a cheek 2 say it wasn’t rite wen reebok dropped him

  • WillVetterGoodin

    Well it really wasn’t fair that you made it to the buffet before all of us and ate all the food. That, wasn’t fair.

  • Guest

    LOL @ FAGS like ROCKO & ROZAY who want their slave master Reebok to rethink dropping him. Dumb ass niggaz should have known not to promote a rape verse. Thats shit is gay.

    • RMfag

      I dont agree with rape, just putting that out.
      But I didnt know Rocko & Rozay were fags! Id definitely suck them both off.

  • MuthaFuka Jones

    It wasn’t fair……………….but it was fair for you to replace him on your song, right Rocko?? Whoever the fuk you are?? Way to show support, if that’s your attempt………..dumbass.

  • THATmothafucka

    Yea, he probably shouldn’t have rapped about rape but it’s no different than all the others who have outright rapped about it before him. I know rape is a sensitive subject and it should be but rappers rap about killing people and their families 24/7 and there is never an outcry. The line is being overblown. And like Rocko said, “It was a cardinal sin to wear Reebok before Ross started promoting ‘em. Ross stepped in and he branded ‘em and he got the urban market back in to ‘em.” Personally, I still don’t wear Reebok. Haven’t worn Reebok since my days of a youth but he has a point.

    Are the streets really on this song? I don’t listen to regular radio so I don’t know if its getting play…but ive yet to hear the song in a club…nor do I hear people quoting it..so to me..the only traction the song has is the fact that Ross spit the stupid lyrics on it and got in trouble…
