“There are certain things you can’t Tweet and certain things you want people to hear and I want to make sure this is clear..woman is the most precious gift known to man. You understand. There was a misunderstanding with a lyric or a misinterpretation. The term rape wasn’t used. I would never use the term rape in my records. Hip-Hop don’t condone that, the streets don’t condone that. Nobody condones that. I just want to reach out to all the queens on my timeline, the beautiful ladies that were reaching out to me…we don’t condone rape and I’m not with that.”
The reason Rick Ross’ own defense is stupid is because he proves that he truly doesn’t understand the meaning of rape. So let’s put it simply: just because you don’t actually use the word “rape,” doesn’t mean you’re not talking about it. Secondly, if you, as a man, do anything to take away her power to say no, you’ve committed rape in the eyes of the law. While you may live above the law in your rhymes, which is a world you created inside your head, you surely can’t live like that in the real world.
