Meek Mill Defends Rick Ross’ Rape Lyrics

Meek Mill and Rick Ross

Rick Ross is still facing pressure from the public and women’s rights groups for his questionable lyrics about rape on Rocko’s “U.O.E.N.O.” But not everyone is against him. His protégé Meek Mill has come to his defense.

During an interview with the Urban Informer, the Maybach Music MC brushed off the controversy.

“I don’t even care about nobody criticizing no lyrics,” said Meek, whose mixtape Dreamchasers 3 drops May 6. “People rap about killing stuff all day. Biggie said, ‘Rape your kid. Throw her over the bridge.’ It was nothing, it was just hip-hop.”

He attacked blogs for publicizing it and said it’s just part of hip-hop culture. “Now you got all these weirdos on these social sites voicing their opinion about something anybody say. I don’t care. I’m from the ‘hood. I never really cared about what nobody say in no rap. Rap’s always been talking about killing, drugs, all types of stuff.”

According to Meek, the lyrics are not to be taken seriously. “It’s imaginary visual. If a writer write about somebody getting raped in a movie, that mean he a rapist or he want girls to get raped? No, he just wrote about that in a movie.”

Ross issued an apology on Twitter last week. “I dont condone rape.Apologies for the #lyric interpreted as rape. #BOSS,” he wrote.

Meanwhile, protesters are still demanding that Reebok drop the rapper over the lyrics. “Every single day that Reebok continues rewarding Rick Ross with a lucrative endorsement deal, Reebok is condoning rape,” said women’s rights group UltraViolet.

    Well, it’s not just hip hop. Most of the time rap is autobiographical, it’s about your life. Your morals, your values. Sometimes you just gotta acknowledge that you have (or, in Meek’s case, somebody that you’re affiliated with has) crossed a line.

    I believe that Rick Ross and Meek Mill do not condone rape, but saying that it is a part of the culture is insulting it. It’s okay to have boundaries.

    @Lisa, by that standard i guess every rapper from biggie to nas to eminem to 2pac are complete scumbags. did you ever hear their lyrics?

    [Reply]

    Lisa Reply:

    @weq, what standard? That you shouldn’t just say something because you can? It’s not a standard, it’s a principle. I also didn’t say that they are scumbags. I just said that I think Ross has crossed a line and it should’ve been acknowledged properly. That doesn’t make him a bad person…

    Biggie definitely said some things that were out of line. Don’t know about Eminem, Nas and 2Pac, but I’m sure they did as well. But you have to look at the context in which it has been said.

    This idiot is definitely not helping Ross’s case. It’s fine though. His career will be very short.

    You guys are just childish.Meek mill said some real stuffs here and I usually dont agree with him.Music is entertainment. The song had a concept and he followed the concept of the song. In the song he portrays the lifestyle of the youth as a whole.People needs to get a life. It’s ok for some artist such as tupac beyonce or who ever to say some things and be forgiven because they’re artist?allow it allow the art.I don’t condone rape but people that say he needs to be drop off reebok because of that are just haters that need to get a life and focus on things more important.

    People needs to get a life. I usually dont agree with meek but he said some real stuffs here. the song had a concept and ross just stick to the concept.Music is an art and also entertainment. It’s ok for some artist like beyonce to say bow down bitches but not ok for ross to portray society as it is?If you want to blame somebody blame the youth that is ignorant but dont blame ross. I feel like people that say he needs to be drop off reebok because of that are just haters that need to focus on things more important…

    @Truth, I said art and ENTERTAINMENT”boo boo”…it’s not ross’s fault if yall take molly and all these drugs. he’s just portraying the society the youth.Yes it’s sad that people do these things to get laid but is it bad for rick ross to rap about it I don’t think so.It’s not like he created it.There are several ways to interpret Art and only the slow minds focus on the surface instead of think twice and try to understand the concept behind it.

    I can’t stand this ignorant excuse for a rapper. Just because rap has a history of degrading topics doesn’t mean you can’t be the one to change it.

    I didn’t know that putting drugs in a woman’s drink just to then take her home and rape her was something “anybody say”. Meek has never and will never make sense.

  20. ahh

    Morons who are defending these ignorant fucks, when you offend over 50% (there are more women than men in America) of the population, you better be ready to apologize. What kind of fucking moron thinks it’s cool to drug women and then rap about it as though it’s the new trend. I think these ignorant fucks forget that they are raised by women. Fucking idiots disrespecting women like this. I’m so glad Reebok dropped his fat ass. Defending this moron is a part of the ‘rape culture’ that exists in this world. Before you start defending him, ask yourself, would it be funny if someone “Put molly all in your moms/sisters/daughters champagne/ She ain’t even know it / I took her home and I enjoyed that/ She ain’t even know it.” Let’s see if you defend this shit then.
