Rick Ross & Lil Wayne Music Pulled From Radio Station, Rozay Apologizes For Offensive Lyrics

 

It hasn’t been a good public relations year for Rick Ross and Lil Wayne, with both men under fire for lyrics that many say crossed the lines of decency. One radio station has responded to the popular rappers and their questionable output by pulling their music off the air.

WUVS -103.7 in Muskegon, Mich. has taken a stand against Rozay and Weezy, speaking against Wayne’s ill-advised use of Emmett Till‘s name in a punch line for a remix of Future’s “Karate Chop” single. The station also checked Ross on his alleging date r@pe on Rocko’s buzzing single “YounEEnKnoIT,” as well, in a released statement.

From WUVS:

Effective immediately Muskegon’s WUVSlp 103.7 the Beat has pulled ALL Lil Wayne and Rick Ross music from rotation.  We pride ourselves on playing music that is non-degrading and non-violent. While we believe in freedom of speech, creative writing and individualism, we refuse to be part of the problem by spreading messages that could harm or end someone’s life.

According to a report from theGrio.com, two major petitions have been launched by activists using Change.org and RapRehab.com as their platforms. Rap Rehab founder and music rights activist Paul Porter addressed the situation in a comment.

“The problem is not only with the content and date r@pe, but the problem is that it goes through a corporate structure,” Porter told theGrio.

Several other stations are said to be following WUVS in pulling the Rocko record from playlists. Lil Wayne’s verse was edited and an apology was issued by his record label.

Update:

Rick Ross took some time to address the controversy surrounding his lyrics on New Orleans radio station Q93 and  In Flex We Trust got the exclusive video footage. Hit the next page to check out what Rozay had to say about the line around the 4:43 mark.

    So he’s lashing out at the critics because he never actually says the word ‘rape.’ But the lyrics clearly imply he’s taking advantage of an intoxicated female, which is rape. GTFOH with the “women are queens” speak. The song is garbage and another example of the crap that appeals to basic hip hop fans anyways.

      It boils down to basic economics; law of supply and demand. The market demands his product so it sells.

        Yep, and it’s a shame.

    So…just to be clear, they are going to pull Lil’ Wayne & Rick Ross’ music because of what they say in a song, but continue to play music by other artists that have actually committed violent crimes that degrade humanity??? Well, at least they have their priorities straight.

    Well after seeing the movie Ujango, and knowing some history of white slavery’s breeding of blacks for profit, our imagination says there must have been horrors not only on black women but men too. There must have been master gays and freaks. Maybe unfortunately there is another message in Lil Wayne.

No thanks
