Today, during a promo stop in New Orleans, Rick Ross made his way down to Q 93.3 radio station to clear up the drama while saying that his lyrics were misinterpreted.
I wanted to come down to the radio station. There is certain things you can’t tweet, you have to verbalize. I want to make sure this is clear, that woman is the most precious gift known to man, you understand? It was a misunderstanding with a lyric, a misinterpretation where the term rape wasn’t used. I would never use the term rape. As far as my camp, hip hop don’t condone that. The streets don’t condone that. Nobody condones that. So I wanted to reach out to all the 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.So, where’s the misinterpretation?" [Source]
On if he believes that people are being too sensitive regarding lyrics
I think that’s a good thing at the same time. Sometimes I think it’s our job as an artist to clarify the sensitive things and the things that we know really need to be clarified, such as a situation as this. The boss ain’t with that. We ain’t with that. Double M ain’t with that. And that’s what it’s about.
I was wondering the exact same thing.
Dude said on one of his tracks that he raped a woman. He should apologize and say that it was a stupid thing to say and that he will never say it again. End of story.
Rick, it's cool to apologize. I know that you want to be a gangsta and all, but no one will think you are "sof" if you step up to the plate and say that you said something stupid.
Sorry dude, you are still in the house.
Speaking of being in the house, I wonder if the wingnuts among us have lost all sense of shame. I know that these are tough political times for you when the HNIC is beating you at every turn, but the hypocrisy when it comes to President Obama is now officially out of control.
Why should the president's daughters be denied something that hundreds of thousands of students in this country do every year? Vacations are not just for wealthy kids. I thought that this was a rite of passage with American teenagers.
*Field, that would be for white teenagers. Vacations are not for you Negroes. Negro children are not supposed to enjoy themselves.*
"A Republican congressman slammed President Obama for reportedly sending his daughters on a spring break vacation in the Bahamas on Wednesday, saying it was the “wrong image to be coming out of the White House.”
Rep. Steve King made the rare critical comment about the First Daughters on an Iowa-based radio show called Mickelson in the Morning.
In audio of the segment posted online by the progressive blog ThinkProgress, King fielded a call from a woman who referenced a Breitbart News report that Sasha and Malia Obama are vacationing in the Bahamas.
The White House does not confirm information about the girls’ travel plans for security and privacy reasons.
The caller said the report was “really hard to stomach.”
You’re right on the President. I mean, he needs to show some austerity himself,” he said.
“He sent the daughters to spring break in Mexico a year ago – that was at our expense too,” King added. “And now to the Bahamas at one of the most expensive places there. That is the wrong image to be coming out of the White House.” [Source]
We are quite familiar with the imagery. And we also know why it drives certain people crazy.
