RICK ROSS Apologizes….Again: “To every woman that has felt the sting of abuse, I apologize”

Filed under : Entertainment

Great apology by Rick Ross but I honestly think that he is a day late and a dollar short with his apology over his unfortunate lyrics.

In his statement released yesterday, Rick Ross said:

“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.”

This is Rick Ross’ third attempt for an apology. This comes on the heels of getting dropped by shoe maker, Reebok for his controversial “rape” lyrics on Rocko’s mixtape track “U.E.O.N.O.”. The Maybach Music don’s verse has already been snatched off the mixtape track, and Reebok has dropped him as a spokesperson.

Rick Ross said about Reebok dropping him:

I want to thank Reebok Classics for their hard work and dedication over this past year. Good partners, good shoe. continued success.

Lesson for us all: words are everything so watch what you say!
