(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.
