Rick Ross says “U.O.E.N.O.” lyrics aren’t promoting date rape, they’re “art”

If there was a prize for the creepiest lyrics of 2013, hip hop mega-star Rick Ross may be the winner. His rhyme on Rocko’s “U.O.E.N.O.” goes like this:

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

Predictably, Ross is in damage control mode, issuing the following statement to Funkmaster Flex (copied verbatim):

I know I’m a man, but I respect Women to the utmost, And Things like Date Rape shouldn’t be glorified…with that being said, I don’t think taking Rap lyrics as straight facts is ever the way to go. I mean that is really setting a president we do NOT want to set, then every rapper could be indicted for Drug dealing, Murder, etc, etc. Hip Hop is Art, and we have to look at it as art. Yes We want to see these artists as the realest people ever, but they are the Voice we want to hear when we want to know what’s going on out there, and in reality some people Do these things, And Shouldn’t it be brought to light so young Women can protect themselves?!?! This Is actually really good the conversation is going…Ross has actually helped to protect Our Women from the Creeps that would hurt them!!!!

Head below to hear the lyrics in question, and skip ahead to 2:10 if you prefer.
