MMG head honcho, Rick Ross, has been under fire for his controversial date rape lyrics on Rocko’s latest track, You Don’t Even Know It. On the verse, he describes slipping his date a molly, and having his way with her… and now those very lyrics have caused radio stations to pull his music from rotation, and Women’s Rights Groups to protest against Reebok, putting his endorsement deal in jeopardy.
Despite all of the controversy surrounding his boss, MMG signee, Meek Mill, decided to join him in the hot seat by defending his lyrics during a recent interview with 93.9 WKYS:
You know man, I don’t even care about nobody criticizing lyrics man. People rap about killing stuff all day man. Biggie said ‘rape your kid, throw her over the bridge,’ back then and it was nothing, it was just hip-hop. Now you got all these weirdos on these social sites voicing their opinions about something anybody say. I don’t care. You know what I’m saying? I’m from the hood. I never really cared about what nobody said in no raps. Raps always been talking about killing, drugs, all types of stuff, you know what I’m saying? So you can’t just criticize no one thing nobody say man. It’s imaginary visuals. If a writer write about somebody getting raped in a movie, is he a rapist or he want girls to get raped? No, he just wrote about that in a movie.
Meek Mill isn’t the only rapper jumping to Ross’ defense. In a recent interview with Jenny Boom Boom, Ace Hood went on record saying, I just think people are taking it too far.
Hmmm. Post your thoughts!
