Hundreds of protesters from UltraViolet were outside of the Reebok store on 5th Ave, in New York City, decked out in running suits wearing the numbers 71,763 which represents the number of petitions signed against Ross and his lyrics.
Ross released a statement speaking against the lyrics in question.
“I want to make sure this is clear, woman is the most precious gift known to man, you understand? It was a misunderstanding with a lyric, a misinterpretation where the term rape wasn’t used. I would never use the word rape in my records,” Rick Ross explained. “And as far as my camp, hip-hop don’t condone that, streets don’t condone that. Nobody condones that, you understand me? I just wanted to reach out to all the queens that’s on my timeline, all the sexy ladies, the beautiful ladies that have been reaching out to me about the misunderstanding. We don’t condone rape and I’m not with that.”
Meanwhile, Talib Kweli even got into the fray yesterday talking about the topic on a segment on the Huffington Post, while also getting into a heavy debate with The Source Editor-In-Chief Dream Hampton on Twitter.
"I don't care if Rick Ross is 40 years old," he said. "He's a misguided 40-year-old person."
Ross just released a new video for a new freestyle of Kendrick Lamar's hit single "Don't Kill My Vibe."
