Despite emerging as a prominent CEO with Maybach Music Group, Rick Ross has yet to reel in any female MCs to his record label. During an interview with The Breakfast Club earlier this week, Ross candidly broke down his reasoning behind not signing female rappers.
“You know, I never did it because I always thought, like, I would end up f—ing a female rapper and f—ing the business up,” Ross said. “I’m so focused on my business. I just, I gotta be honest with you. You know, she looking good. I’m spending so much money on her photo shoots. I gotta f— a couple times.”
Ross’ comments come years after he was lambasted for his lyrics on Rocko’s “U.O.E.N.O.” For his verse, Rozay bragged about drugging a woman and later taking her home. “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.”
In an attempt to quell the 2013 controversy, Ross spoke to Rolling Stone and addressed the questionable lyrics. “I feel like us being artists, that’s our job to clarify the sensitive things and the things that we know really need to be clarified, such as a situation like this,” he said at the time, addubg: “We don’t condone raping — I’m not with that.”
