Rappers Rocko and Rick Ross’s single U.O.E.N.O is causing an uproar within the music industry and women all over the word for a lyric which signifies abuse and rape. Though the single was released a couple months ago, Rosa Clemente, an hip-hop activist and journalist condemned it on Youtube.
The lyrics talks about giving a woman Molly aka Ecstasy, without her knowing. “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.”
The former correctional officer turned rapper said responding back to the controversy, “There was a misunderstanding with a lyric, a misinterpretation.” Strongly refuting the accusation, Ross stated, “I would never use the term ‘rape’ in my records.” Going on to say, “I’m not with that.”
Talib Kweli recently spoke out, saying, “I don’t care if Rick Ross is 40 years old. He’s a misguided 40-year-old person. Rick Ross condoned rape in that song and he should apologize, and his apology that he offered was unacceptable.”
