Rick Ross’ ‘Black Market’ Album Pulled By Walmart Over Donald Trump Lyrics’
It appears Walmart has “rolled back” on Rick Ross‘ latest album, Black Market, by snatching it off of their shelves and website over lyrics about Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Via ABC 2 News:
The controversy surrounding the album arose last week, when journalist Mark Dice took issue with a lyric in the album’s first song, “Free Enterprise.” In it, Ross raps “Assassinate Trump like I’m Zimmerman/Now accept the words as they came from Eminem.”
Dice took issue with the lyrics, calling them “terrorist threats.” He contacted a number of major retailers, including Walmart, calling on them to suspend sales of the album.
Neither Ross nor Walmart has released a statement on the matter.
