Recently, a large batch of leaked songs by Rich Homie Quan surfaced the ‘net, one of which contained lyrics that alluded to rape.
“Don’t want your ho, just want that cookie from her,” raps Quan in “I Made It.” “She tried to resist, so I took it from her / How you gonna tell me no / You must not know who I am.”
Needless to say, the lyric made its way around the viral universe and prompted backlash from fans and critics alike. What followed was a formal release statement from the ATL spitter himself:
“‘I Made It’ was never intended to be released. The song was not lyrically what I wanted to say and was not completed. Without my knowledge, there was a studio leak of the recording. I apologize that it’s out; and I have asked my lawyer to pursue a cease and desist on the song immediately. To be clear, I would never condone rape.”
Not much to say after that, except that maybe the song should’ve never been leaked. Quan hasn’t been involved in any rape cases that have been publicized.
In 2013, Rick Ross lost a sponsorship deal with Reebok for lyrics on Rocko’s “U.O.E.N.O.” that alluded to the rapper engaging in sexual acts with a female subject after he slipped MDMA in her drink.
