Rick Ross’ controversial verse on Rocko’s “U.O.E.N.O.” has been permanently axed from the track, HipHollywood has learned. Ross is being hammered in the press over lyrics on the tune that seem to promote date rape.
Rocko took to New York radio station Hot 97 to explain his decision to remove the Florida rapper from the track, saying, “Because of the type of the traction that the record has, as far as radio … it puts me in a position where I have to change it … You have to do what you have to do.”
While Ross’ verse has been dropped, Rocko knows you can’t change what’s already been done. “He’s always going to be on the song,” he explained. “The song is in the street, it’s so heavy in the street. And it don’t matter who I put on the song, that’s always gonna be the original version,” he shared.
Rocko says he will be putting out a remix of “U.O.E.N.O.” without Ross, but wouldn’t reveal who would be replacing the Boss. “I have six different verses from all type of very different, very talented, multi-faceted artists.” Asked if Young Jeezy was in consideration as rumored, he added, “I can’t confirm that. I know he did a verse … but I haven’t put the record together yet.”

It’s Litty! Migos, Jaden Smith & More Turn Up At ‘Bright’ World Premiere
Netflix definitely made sure the world premiere for their new flick Bright was lit!
Before the films stars including Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Edgar Ramierez and Noomi Rapace hit the black carpet, Migos surprised fans with a pop-up performance.
Smith’s son Jaden also rocked the packed crowd at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood.
Artists featured on the soundtrack BRIGHT: THE ALBUM including Portugal The Man, Machine Gun Kelly, Ty Dolla $ign, Kiiara, Slushie, Grey, Dram, and Bebe Rexha also hit up the premiere.
Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.
He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.“
“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”
In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.
“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”
BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
