In this midst of rapper Rick Ross’s controversy from the lyrics he used in the song U.O.E.N.O that was featured on fellow rapper Rocko’s mixtape, Reebok has decided to cut ties with the God Forgives But I Don’t artist. The shoe company stated that Ross’s apology from the implication of drugging a woman with ecstasy and raping her was sincere and hadn’t displayed the ‘appropriate level of remorse.’
The lyrics of the song U.O.E.N.O—“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.”
UltraViolet, a group of women advocates, protests outside a Reebok store, demanding the shoe company release Rick Ross from their partnership. UltraViolet released a statement, “We are thrilled to hear that Reebok is joining the fight against rape culture and dropping Rick Ross. Thank you Reebok for taking a stand.”
Reebok’s statement Thursday, “Reebok holds our partners to a high standard, and we expect them to live up to the values of our brand. Unfortunately, Rick Ross has failed to do so. While we do not believe that Rick Ross condones sexual assault, we are very disappointed he has yet to display an understanding of the seriousness of this issue or an appropriate level of remorse. At this time, it is in everyone’s best interest for Reebok to end its partnership with Mr. Ross.”
Cardi B Makes History as First Female Rapper to Land Two No. 1 Singles
Cardi B just accomplished something no other female rapper has done.
Thanks to her latest single, I Like It, the New York native is the first female rapper with two songs to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, the music magazine reported Monday.
The track featuring Latin music stars Bad Bunny and J Balvin was released in May, and is the latest single off Cardi B’s debut studio album, Invasion of Privacy.
It follows the release of club anthem Bodak Yellow (Money Moves), which climbed to the top of the Hot 100 in October.
Four other female rappers have previously landed No. 1 singles on the Hot 100, including Lauryn Hill with Doo Wop (That Thing) in 1998. Lil’ Kim had Lady Marmalade with Christina Aguilera, Mya and Pink in 2001. Shawnna was featured on Ludacris’ single Stand Up in 2003, and Iggy Azalea with Fancy featuring Charli XCX in 2014.
Before her album was released, Cardi B began to garner attention as a regular castmember on the VH1 reality series Love & Hip Hop: New York.
She is currently expecting her first child with rapper Offset of hip-hop trio Migos.
The two tied the knot last year, but never went public with their marriage until Offset let it slip on stage last month during the BET Awards that they are husband and wife. Cardi B has since confirmed the marriage on social media.

She added: ‘You know there is nothing I love more than celebrating the holidays with my festive Christmas show, but I have to take my Doctor’s orders and rest until he says I can sing on stage.
‘Until then, unfortunately, I have to cancel the first several shows of my upcoming Christmas tour. ‘I’m going to do all that I can so that I can see you soon.’
She was also recently forced to pull out of the LA premiere of her animated nativity film The Star, blaming an upset stomach.
While Carey was feeling “under the weather” over Thanksgiving, her twins, Moroccan and Monroe, spent the holiday feeding the homeless with their dad, Nick Cannon.
