RICK ROSS SAYS HE WASN'T TALKING ABOUT DATE RAPE IN HIS NEW SONG

Rick Ross has come forward in an attempt to defend himself against the backlash caused by his controversal rhyme.

His outrageous lyrics in the new single “U.O.E.N.O. (You Ain’t Even Know It)” by Rocko have sparked debate causing Change.org and RapRehab.com to launch petitions calling on Ross to apologize and take full responsibility for the utterly disgraceful words.

The Miami rapper’s line says: “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.”

Molly is a drug called MDMA or ectasy. Ross’ lyrics insinuate he spiked a woman’s drink with the drug then took her home and had his way with her without her consent.

"There was a misunderstanding, a misinterpretation," Rozay told Q93.3 in New Orleans Wednesday.

The pitiful excuse for a hip hop rhyme was released just after the widely publicized decision of the Steubenville, Ohio, rape case. The conviction of the two high school football players who were accused of sexually assaulting an intoxicated 16-year-old girl that did not consent, received a slew of backlash and the victim was harassed before and after the judgment.

Like the case, Ross’ rap has drawn up major discussion on violence against women causing hip hop fans and women’s rights activists to voice their outrage.

Change.org is urging the artist to “publically apologize for glorifying ‘date rape.’”

"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," he continued. "So I just wanted to reach out to all my queens that's on my timeline, all the sexy ladies, the beautiful ladies that have been reaching out to me with the misunderstanding: We don't condone rape, and I'm not with that."

Born William Leonard Roberts II, Rick Ross is an influential figure in hip hop music. His Maybach Music Group label is credited with three certified Gold albums and his fourth studio album debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 chart.

Change’s online petition, which asks the musician to “issue a public apology to rape victims and women,” recognized Ross’ influence and states, “People will listen to your songs and try to live how you live.”

RapRehab.com filed a similar petition and asked that the rapper step up and take full responsibility for reciting words “that encourage drugging a woman to force her into sex.”

Music rights activist and founder of Rap Rehab, Paul Porter, told theGrio, “The problem is not only with the content and date rape, but that it goes through a corporate structure.”

Putting the blame on more than just Ross, Porter indicates that the industry as a whole needs to take a step back and recognize the music that’s being released.

“Going after Rick Ross is like stepping on the toes. It’s time to go for the heads,” he said. “[It’s] the people who green-light the projects. It shouldn’t be broadcast material.”

In Ross' response it seems as though the rapper wants the public to feel he's done what is being asked of him. But is it really an apology?

"I feel like us being artists, that's our job to clarify the sensitive things, the things that we really know need to be clarified such as a situation as this," he added.

That song bangs! And I didn't even know Ross was talkin' bout date rape cause the beat is so f**kin' FIRE!!!

U Aint Even Know It!
