Rick Ross biedt officieel excuus aan

April 13th, 2013

Rick Ross heeft zijn oprechte excuses aangeboden. Deze week dropte Reebok zijn contract bij het merk partner vanwege de lyrics op ‘U.O.E.N.O’. De rapper zegt dat de lyrics niet recht zijn hart kwamen en hij er zelf ook niet achter .

Op de track lijkt de rapper het verkrachten van vrouwen te verheerlijken. Gisteren bood hij zijn excuses aan in een officieel statement:

“Before I am an artist, I am a father, a son, and a brother to some of the cherished women in the world. So for me to suggest in any way that harm and violation be brought to a is one of my biggest mistakes and regrets. As an artist, one of the most liberating things is being able to paint pictures with my words. But with that comes a great responsibility. And most recently, my choice of words was not only offensive, it does not reflect my true heart. And for this, I apologize. To every woman that has felt the sting of abuse, I apologize. I recognize that as an artist I have a voice and with that, the power of influence. To the men who listen to my music, please know that using a substance to rob a woman of her right to make a choice is not only a crime, it’s wrong and I do not encourage it. To my fans, I also apologize if I have disappointed you. I can only hope that this sparks a healthy dialogue and that I can contribute to it.” —William Roberts (a.k.a “Rick Ross”)

No hard feelings voor Rick. Op Twitter bedankt hij Reebok en wenst hij ze succes met hun brands.
