During the summer of 2013, Rick Ross landed in hot water for a verse that described date raping a woman using the drug Molly, and it cost him a lucrative shoe deal with Reebok.
Ross’ 6th album Mastermind is scheduled for a March 4th release but the album is currently streaming on iTunes.
The rap superstar may be forced make another apology for his lyrics in the near future.
Too close to a ni**a as a mother**king bomb
Trayvon Martin, I’m never missing my target
B*tch ni**as hating, tell me it’s what I’m parking
Wingstop owner, lemon pepper aroma
Young, black ni**a, barely got a diploma
This is the latest incident where cultural sensitivity and hip-hop music have collided.
Earlier this month Nicki Minaj came under scrutiny for using a photo Malcolm X as cover art for her single “Look*n A** N*gga,” and last year her label mate Lil Wayne faced a similar firestorm after he compared sex to the vicious killing of civil rights icon Emmett Till on Future’s “Karate Chop Remix.”
