The Bawse still got that fat shoe contract. But his molly sex assault verse is getting dropped from Rocko's "U.O.E.N.O."
Even though women's rights organization UltraViolet, hundreds of rape victims, and 51,000 petitioners recently demanded "Reebok drop Rick Ross for bragging about drugging and raping a woman," there's been no action from the sneaker corp.
However, Atlanta-bred rapper Rocko has decided to ditch the MMG honcho's rape lyrics.
In an interview with New York's Hot 97, Rocko confirmed plans to replace Ross' verse, including those now-infamous bars: "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."
Apparently, Rocko will be picking from six unused "U.O.E.N.O." guest spots. Still, he admits, "It doesn't matter who I put on the song, that's going to always be the original version. It's not like I can do another version and call it the original."
"With all respect to the homie Ross," Rocko tells Hot 97. "It's a Catch-22. I don't want to take him off."
However, the possible replacement, a longtime sworn enemy of Ricky Rozay, might not be taken as a show of respect to the Bawse.
"I know [Young Jeezy] did a verse," he says. "[But] no, I haven't put the record together."
In any case, whichever the "U.O.E.N.O" sub gets tapped, at least Rocko, unlike Rick Ross,
respects women is afraid of all this bad publicity.
