Why Rick Ross Is Still Apologizing

Published

on

2013 has been a rough year for Miami rapper, Rick Ross. The Florida native was the target of nationwide protests over his lyrics in Rocko’s hit song, “U.O.E.N.O.”

On the track, the rapping heavyweight brags about drugging a girl and having sex with her. Those controversial lyrics led to Ross being dropped by Reebok back in April, despite a public apology on Twitter.

While the axed endorsement deal and public criticism were hard to swallow for Ross, the rapper tells the AP he learned a lot from the incident. “You live and you learn. I think the most unfortunate thing about the whole situation was just the fact that my lyrics offended some ladies, especially dealing with the topic of rape. It was interpreted as rape.”

“I really wanted to make sure that I apologize to any woman that I offended in that way,” Ross added. “I just wanted to make that clear. When I make music and I’m talking on records, it’s like I’m painting a picture. In my mind, I’m seeing a film. I apologize.”

As for whether the women in his life were offended by his words, Ross explains, “They know where I stand as far as women. They know the level of respect I have for women. With my mother being the most beautiful woman in the world, she knows where I’m coming from.”

Ladies, do you forgive Ross for his lyrics?

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.
