Rick Ross Finally Issues A Formal Apology

Rick Ross

Well it’s about time!

Someone on Rick Ross’ team must’ve finally talked some sense into him, or the loss of his endorsement deal with Reebok was a wake up call.  Either way, the rapper has finally issued a statement of apology and this time it’s a real apology (not a weak apology where he blamed everyone for “misinterpreting” the “rape” lyrics), and Rick Ross is finally taking responsibility for the controversial lyrics.

Just in case you forgot, Rick Ross’ controversial lyrics from Rocko’s “U.O.E.N.O.” went something like this… “Put a 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.”

…and here’s Rick Ross’ new apology:

“Before I am an artist, I am a father, a son, and a brother to some of the most cherished women in the world. So for me to suggest in any way that harm and violation be brought to a woman 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 young 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”)

Do you believe Rick Ross has learned his lesson?  I sure do hope so!  We’ll just have to wait and see how he handles things from now on.  I just hope this apology wasn’t too little, too late.
