After being the target of a 100,000 signature petition by Women’s Rights group UltraViolet, (which ultimately brought an end to his gig with Reebok) Rick Ross has finally issued his formal apology for his controversial “rape” lyrics on Rocko’s U.O.E.N.O.
Check out the MMG Mogul’s apology below.
“Before I am an artist, I am a father, a son, and a brother to some of the most cherished women in the world. So for me to suggest in any way that harm and violation be brought to a woman is one of my biggest mistakes and regrets. As an artist, one of the most liberating things is being able to paint pictures with my words. But with that comes a great responsibility. And most recently, my choice of words was not only offensive, it does not reflect my true heart. And for this, I apologize. To every woman that has felt the sting of abuse, I apologize. I recognize that as an artist I have a voice and with that, the power of influence. To the young men who listen to my music, please know that using a substance to rob a woman of her right to make a choice is not only a crime, it’s wrong and I do not encourage it. To my fans, I also apologize if I have disappointed you. I can only hope that this sparks a healthy dialogue and that I can contribute to it.”
Since the controversy, not only has Ross been crossed out by Reebok, but Rocko has also removed his verse completely for the radio version of the song. Wiz Khalifa has now been chosen as the latest feature for “U.O.E.N.O.” and a new remix of the song is expected to drop once a week for the next five weeks.
What do you think about the apology? Is this the right move for Ricky Rozay? Let us know.
