Rick Ross Explains Controversial Trayvon Martin Lyrics On “Black And White”

Published

on

Rick Ross is under fire for some controversial lyrics on his new album, Mastermind. On the track, “Black and White,” Ross rhymes:

“Forbes dot com, I’m the Teflon Don / Too close to a n*gga as a motherf*cking bomb / Trayvon Martin, I’m never missing my target / B*tch n*ggas hating, tell me it’s what I’m parking.”

As you can imagine, that Trayvon Martin reference did not sit well with some, forcing Ross to issue an email to Vibe magazine explaining his lyrics.

“It’s so important that today, on the two-year anniversary of the death of Trayvon Martin, we never forget that tragedy,” Ross said. “I’m never going to let the world forget that name. In my song ‘Black and White’ off Mastermind I say, ‘Trayvon Martin, I’m never missing my target.’ There I’m reminding people that if you’re a black person or a person of any color for that matter in this country, you have to be accurate, whatever moves you make, stay accurate. Even when you’re walking down the street, playing music from your car, you have to stay on point.”

“Black men are being killed and their killers [are] beating the trial,” said the rapper. “It hasn’t been this much violence against Black men since the ’60s. I am Trayvon Martin, we’re all Trayvon Martin. He was from South Florida. That could have been me or one of my homies. So, stay alert and never miss your target. Whatever that target may be. Getting out the hood, providing from your family. Stay sharp. Stay alive. Trayvon, Rest in Peace.”

Ross does know a thing or two about backlash over controversial lyrics. Last year, Reebok ended their business relationship with the rapper because of his verse on Rocko’s “U.O.E.N.O.” On the song, Ross rapped:

“Put 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.”

Mastermind drops March 4th.

Jill Scott’s Drunken Disaster NOT The Result Of Divorce Drama … So She Says.

Published

on

Jill Scott is blaming it on the alcohol … not her divorce.

Jilly from Philly had one drink (or several) too many and decided to document her mood for all to see on social media. By the looks of it, she instantly regretted it.

Scott snatched the video down within hours of posting it, but that was still long enough for fans to reach out to the songstress with cries of concern in her comment section. Jill, who recently filed for divorce from her second husband, Mike Dobson, seemed to be crying in the beginning of the video … then laughing hysterically by the end. And, of course, her tribe of supporters took notice.

Unfortunately, Scott wasn’t here for the sympathy. Instead she clapped back at those insinuating she was drowning her divorce tears in a bottle of Henny. In an IG post captioned, “Real Talk. Good Night,” Jill explained that all y’all need to chill and not everything is about her ex.

So, do you believe her? Jill and Mike were married just 15 months before Scott filed for divorce citing “inappropriate marital conduct.” Dobson then went on a media tour shading the Neo-soul singer calling her controlling and evil.

Look, Jill, if you are hitting the bottle to hide your pain we won’t blame you. Even if it is “out of your mind” we’re sure it’s still stressful and that’s ok. On the other hand, if you were justing getting super lit on a Saturday, then more power to you!
