Dear Rick Ross: Drugging A Woman's Drink For Sex Is Rape

    In the latest Molly poppin lyrical fail by a rapper, Rick Ross brags on Future & Rocko’s song called “U.O.E.N.O.” (you ain’t even know it) about drugging women’s drinks “and they don’t even know it.”

    “Put molly all in her champagne, she aint even know it,” he raps. “I took her home and I enjoyed that, she aint even know it.”

    The timing of this lyric couldn’t be worse as women in Delhi fight to protect their womanhood from rape and young boys in America are being sent to jail because they think it’s ok to have sex with women who are too drunk or high to give consent.

    No. No. No. This is not cool, swag or “bawse.” I don’t care how many vaginal assaults a drugged-out actress asks for on Twitter, it is not acceptable to preach the practice of drugging women to have sex with them “without them even knowing.” If she didn’t know she didn’t give consent. And if she didn’t give consent she was raped. You’re out here telling your fans that it’s cool to rape women and YOU don’t even know it.

    Ross’ lyrics are reprehensible on so many levels but as a man you have to ask yourself: What kind of sex am I having where I don’t want the woman to remember?

    We can’t wait to hear how he tries to spin this one.

    I've attached the offending mixtape track (low quality 96kbps mp3 that's been converted to .wma since its fits under this server's file size limit) to the post. Let me know if there's issues with that (not sure if it's okay to supply here as the prime evidence behind this post or not). Ross's lyrics kick in at 2:00; the 'drugged' line kicks in around 2:12 on the track

    There's also the YT link but those links sometimes aren't indefinite like D-F posts should be; the tradeoff is in its much higher audio quality.

    Just listened to it several times on youtube but can hardly understand a word. But that's cool; I can still nod along.

    I do hear this line in the chorus: I came up from bottom, you don't even know it.

    Actually, I could have guessed that...

    These lines are genius poetry:

    That monster truck sit tall as fuck, it's so big can't even tow it.
    Don't like snakes, keep my grass cut, so low can't even mow it
    .

    And I can relate to Rick Ross when he says: Bricks all in my blood, birds all in my dreams...

    This is pretty fucking ironic since you would think as a bigshot "Swag" rapper he'd be able to have plenty of easy sex without the need to rape anyone. But lyrics are lyrics... I mean Biggie used to kill and rape all the time in his rap, what's the difference?
  3. Cash.Nexus
    Lyrics are lyrics, but I figure it comes down to narrative satisfaction. Like, Biggie got shot; not exactly 'dying for his sins' but at least detractors can take some comfort. That's how dramas are traditionally supposed to end, with the bad guy dead and victims avenged.

    So when is Rick Ross (or rather the villainous character "Rick Ross" - he even stole the name from 'Freeway' Ricky the famous coke trafficker) going to get his?

    Apart from Mr. T (without mohawk) he mostly reminds me of Aaron 'The Moor' in Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus. Aaron:

    Some devil whisper curses in my ear,
    And prompt me that my tongue may utter forth
    The venomous malice of my swelling heart!


    Finally he gets payback. Lucius:

    Set him [Aaron] breast deep in earth, and famish him;
    There let him stand, and rave, and cry for food:
    If any one relieves or pities him,
    For the offence he dies.


    Mr Ross should know about punishment. He's an ex-prison guard/C.O. or so I read in G.Q. If that is true and was widely known his credibility would be nil. Then again, he smokes blunts constantly so he must be cool.

    But really: isn't it obvious that this is all about one thing? MONEY. Which isn't surprising considering it's 90% of this song's subject and most others in this genre...the goods and services obtained and the crimes committed to pay for it all.

    Yes with that one line about spiking champagne etc Rick Ross has generated controversy = attention = Youtube hits (+ sales) = $$$$$'s. "Lyrical fail?" No, marketing savvy.

    I don't know why I find it so crazy that he was a prison guard since everything else about him is fake or stolen.

    "After months of denials and flat-out refusing to address the subject, Rick Ross has admitted to being employed as a correctional officer. In the May issue of XXL magazine, the Miami rap star finally owns up.

    "Me not answering or addressing that situation has nothing to do with my career," he's quoted as saying. "I've accomplished enough, and I've made enough money for me to be good. ... Yes, it was me in those pictures. But I'mma tell you this. Me taking that job, I was doing my job. You understand what I mean?"

    After a picture of Ross wearing a guard uniform leaked onto the Internet, The Smoking Gun Web site was the first to crack the case concerning Ross' controversial background. They released purported official papers detailing his job and old pay stubs. While the evidence of Ross' past seemed irrefutable, the MC had brushed it off until now, despite blog talk and continual mocking from 50 Cent (the G-Unit have constantly called him "Officer Ricky" in songs and interviews).

    Ross told XXL that his credibility cannot be fazed and the drug-dealing stories in his songs are authentic."

    I don't really understand why these lyrics were the ones they decided to focus on. Like other rappers don't talk about killing people or raping women or whatever else. Do we need an article every time a rapper says something controversial? I think we could save time by asking journalists to just inform us whenever a song comes out that doesn't include any references to murder, rape, drugs, money, or cars. So that basically leaves Will Smith and Kidz Bop.

    How much of a loser do you have to be to pretend to drug women's drinks in order to rape them?

    This piece of shit should be taken out.

    "I'm such a badass I'm a total drug dealer and rapist." Everyday I'm lameasfuck.
  6. seaturtle
    I'm not bothered by those lyrics more than his other lyrics about murder, pillaging, and hardcore drug dealing. It's all a drug induced fantasy and can't be taken seriously.

    Rick Ross apologizes for lyrics deemed pro-rape

    [IMGR="white"]http://www.drugs-forum.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=32001&stc=1&d=1365161687[/IMGR] Rick Ross has formally apologized for lyrics some have called pro-rape.

    Thursday's apology -- in the form of a tweet -- came the same day a women's group, UltraViolet, planned a protest outside of one of his sponsors, Reebok, in Manhattan.

    In Rocko's song "U.O.E.N.O," Ross raps about giving a woman the drug MDMA, known as Molly, and having his way with her. The song was released in January but just recently began getting widespread notice.

    Although last week Ross said his lyrics were misinterpreted, he tweeted Thursday that he doesn't condone rape and apologized for lyrics that were "interpreted as rape."

    He also offered "apologies to my many business partners, who would never promote violence against women," specifically mentioning Reebok and UltraViolet.

    Ha, that pic there^ should be in the Breasts: indecent exposure: NSFW thread.

    So, Rick Ross gets to have his cake and eat it [many cakes, x plural?]

    First the controversy, now the 'apology' - specifically mentioning Reebok and UltraViolet.

    More marketing for his "business partners" and backers.

    If a woman is too drunk to stand up and you go at it while she's on the floor, that's definitely rape, no question about it.

    But what if she gives consent, and is not that drunk?Who determines just how drunk a girl has to be to not be able to give consent?

    If she's physically incapacitated by the alcohol, or if you push the idea of having sex on her when she's clearly very, very drunk, then you should go to jail.

    But all those other women that are just drunk, give consent and then report it as a rape I say this: Men do stupid shit when they drink all the time.Before they drink, they know, that if they get too drunk they'll end up making bad choices in all likelyhood.Why can't women just accept that?

    If you got drunk, and then agreed to have sex, that's your responsibility unless you were physically incapacitated a minor, or the guy forced himself on you.I've done some really crazy things when I've been really drunk,, slept with some women I wouldn't have slept with otherwise.What am I supposed to do?Say she raped me?

    My friend spent a year in jail before the girl finally confessed she made it all up. Basically she was obsessed with him but he wasn't into her at all. One night they both got drunk at a party and he decided what the hell I'll go for it. After sobering up she was under the impression that she was in for a relationships, when he informed here she was merely a one night stand.

    Few hours later cops knock at the door and it's her word again his - guess who won?
  11. RoboCodeine7610
    And he didn't sue her or the state?

    But think about it.The both got drunk, they both had sex and yet he's the one to rape her.Equal treatment should be so in every extent of the law.If a woman can put you in jail with nothing but her word under the admission of being intoxicated with no proof whatsoever something's wrong with the system.

    If a woman claims to be raped by someone they should at least interview people at the party and look at the guy's record.If nobody saw anything suspicious, the tox screen was negative and the guy has no history of any crimes then why should he be put in jail?

    @Robo - You don't have to have a record to commit a crime, everyone has a clean slate in the beginning. Many crimes go unseen by the general public and are only known by the parties directly involved.

    @The article - Rape is bad, but lyrics are for entertainment purposes, just like movie scripts, and are to be taken as seriously as a fart in the wind. Rick Ross's whole persona is fake and fabricated so why should he be taken seriously at all? Just quit buying his music and promoting his sound. Believe it or not, this whole incident just brings more publicity to him, and in the entertainment business, any publicity is good publicity.
  13. RoboCodeine7610
    It's innocent until proven guilty, not the other way around.

    I'm not saying the girl's always lying in that situation. I'm just saying sometimes she does, sometimes she doesn't. How are you supposed to convict someone based on the report of someone who was completely intoxicated?Even if she thinks she's telling the truth, how could she possibly be considered a reliable witness?

    It'd be pretty ironic if a man innocent of rape got convicted and raped himself in prison (after all, he'd be put with real sex offenders).

    Robo
  14. MikePatton
    Witnesses testified that they saw the girl incredibly drunk and incapacitated and eventually saw the two leaving together, which was enough to make it look as if he took advantage of her intoxicated state against her will. He did sue, but shit there's nothing that could give him back that year of his life as well as the shame involved.
  15. RoboCodeine7610
    Absolutely.

    A year in prison must have been pretty shitty, but it's good that he's making the state liable for their incompetence.It's not even about the money, it's about making them pay. If I sued and the judge hypothetically (maybe high on LSD) gave me choice between 100.000 dollars for me or 500.000 dollars of their money being burned up in a pile, I'd definitely choose the latter.

    I fucking hate it when D.As prosecute and ask for a large sentence just because they want it in their resume.I think ruining innocent people's lives with a system that promotes the indiscriminate incarceration of all those arrested for something should be considered a criminal act in itself.

    Let's not split hairs here: the lyrics are about fucking a woman who's so out of it she doesn't even know she's being fucked. In other words, is being raped. There's a world of difference between that and just being horny on account of being a bit drunk/high.
  17. RoboCodeine7610
    I agree. I wasn't really talking about the lyrics, specifically. Just about the issue in general.

    Reebok gives rapper rick ross the boot

    Rick Ross just learned a hard lesson about rape and money ... you embrace one, you lose the other ... because he was just DUMPED by Reebok.

    As TMZ previously reported ... Ross has taken a ton of heat for his song, U.O.E.N.O ... in which he happily sings, "Put Molly [Ecstasy] all in the champagne. She ain't even know it. I took her home and I enjoy that. She ain't even know it." Translation -- date rape.

    Reebok tells TMZ ... "Reebok holds our partners to a high standard, and we expect them to live up to the values of our brand. Unfortunately, Rick Ross has failed to do so."

    Reebok goes on: "While we do not believe that Rick Ross condones sexual assault, we are very disappointed he has yet to display an understanding of the seriousness of this issue or an appropriate level of remorse."
