Rick Ross ‘apologises’ for alleged date rape lyric

U.S rapper, Rick Ross has delivered a tweeted apology after allegations that a lyric in one of his songs hints at and promotes date rape.

The track ‘U.O.E.N.O’ has been criticised for the following lyric:

“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.”

Ross, who has worked with the likes of Kanye, Drake, Jay-Z and Usher in the past, had previously released a statement saying he “respects women” but refused to take responsibility for how people interpreted his words.

Now yesterday, the hip-hop star took to Twitter to try and address the issue – posting the rather rushed, and slightly insincere, message:

He also apologised to the likes of Reebok, who have commercial tie-ins with the rapper. Meanwhile, Ross has been pulled from numerous radio station’s playlists due to the lyric.
