What a scary time.

Rick Ross' attempt to clear his name after being bashed for his controversial lyrics in U.O.E.N.O is WEAK.
The lyrics describe drugging a woman, taking her home, and sexxing her up without her knowledge, but Rick SWEARS he isn't endorsing date rape.
"Woman is the most precious gift known to man. And there was a misunderstanding with a lyric, a misinterpretation. I would never use the term rape in my records, in my lyrics. And as far as my camp, hip-hop don't condone that, the streets don't condone that, nobody condones that. "
Just because he didn't use the word "rape," apparently he thinks we're dumb enough to ignore the insinuation all together.
Sounds like a big case of ignorance to us!
So he LOVES women, but preferably when they are drugged and nearly unconscious???!
If he wasn't talking about date rape in his lyrics than what was he saying?
We're just hoping that his young fans don't use his verse as an instruction manual to take advantage of "the most precious gift known to man."
