Rick Ross has come under fire for his suggestive lyrics on Rocko’s single “U.O.E.N.O.,” on which he raps about slipping a molly in a woman’s drink and taking her home. The Maybach Music boss has responded to the controversy, calling it all a misunderstanding.

“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,” raps Rozay on the Gift of Gab 2 mixtape cut, which also features Future.

During a visit to New Orleans radio station Q93 this week, he denied that the lyrics were implying date rape.

“I want to make sure this is clear that woman is the most precious gift known to man,” said the 37-year-old rap mogul. “It was a misunderstanding with a lyric, a misinterpretation where the term rape wasn’t used.”

He distanced himself from the allegations. “But I would never use the term rape in my records and as far as my camp, hip-hop don’t condone that, the streets don’t condone that. Nobody condones that,” he said, while extending an apology to his female fans who were offended.

“I just wanted to reach out to all the queens that’s on my timeline, all the sexy ladies, the beautiful ladies that had been reaching out to me with the misunderstanding. We don’t condone rape and I’m not with that.”

But it may be too late. Activists are calling for Reebok to drop Ross as its spokesman. “When a company rewards a man who raps about raping women, that’s promoting rape culture. Reebok needs to know that we won’t stand for this,” says UltraViolet, a women’s rights organization who started an online petition.
