Find: Rick Ross' health woes

The hip-hop star came under fire after he seemingly rapped about drugging a woman on fellow musician Rocko's track "U.O.E.N.O. (You Ain't Even Know It)."

The song's lyrics included, "Put molly (slang for pure ecstasy) 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 content of the track has caused controversy, but Ross says his rap has been misconstrued as he would never condone any kind of violence against women.

Speaking on radio station Q93.3, he says, "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 (sic). 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 (sic) 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."

Rick Ross, you say you don't condone rape, yet your lyrics describe a form of rape very clearly. I call bs. Do not insult our intelligence by saying we've misconstrued your very clear lyrics.

Wow...what a complete imbecile!!  Is this guy for real? Is he just incredibly stupid or is he portraying himself as a complete moron to sell records?  His 'lyrics' (if one can actually call this trash as lyrics) blatantly calls for a drugging of one of his 'queens' and then taking advantage of her and...'She ain't even know it.'  
Unbelievable!!  Pathetic!!
People would actually purchase such trash??
Even more pathetic.
What an incredibly sorry culture.   
Then we wonder why there are issues within certain cultures.

So women are "blow-up" dolls to be slung around after being druggged. Mr. Ross, I am sure the people in Stuebenville agree with you that since she accepted the Champagne - she consented, yet if "she don't know" then that is battery/rape - if she should remember - she will be RAPED AGAIN by the system - Sir & I use the term loosely!

 

Ladies be extra careful of your refreshments if you are out there with these individuals that think slipping you a "roofie" is BIG FUN!

 

If you leave a drink - DO NOT PICK IT BACK UP, DO NOT ALLOW ANYONE TO PURCHASE YOUR DRINK OUTSIDE OF YOUR VIEW, AND IF YOU GET A BEER TELL THE HOSTESS OR WAITER TO LEAVE THE CAP ON & HAVE YOUR OWN "CHURCH-KEY!"

 

Apparently "WE" have time warped on things other than Bigotry & as such YOU NEED TO WATCH your BACKS & your girls BACKS. Peace
