Rick Ross Releases Statement Regarding Female Rappers
It appears VH1 gathered Rick Ross with the quickness regarding his mannish remarks about signing female rappers on “The Breakfast Club.”
The MMG founder and judge on VH1’s “Signed” swiftly issued a statement via Facebook saying her regrets saying he doesn’t sign female rappers because he “would end up f**king them.”
Read Rozay’s lengthy statement below.
I want to address an insensitive comment I made on a very sensitive issue, especially in a minority dominated industry like hip
hop. My entire empire’s backbone is led by 2 of the strongest people I know and they happen to be women, my mother and sister. The operations wouldn’t run without them and I have the highest regard and respect for women in this industry. I have a daughter myself, my most cherished gift in the world.
My comment is not reflection of my beliefs on the issue. A mistake I regret. I hope to use my mistake, my platform and the community to create positive discussion to implement change on a very important issue. respect for the ones who stand up to say hey that isn’t right. Now it’s time to accept responsibility and all do better.
I look forward to continue working with & supporting female artists. my discovery process was documented by vh1 on #signed which premiered last night. Many of the most talented artists you’ll see in the running to be the next #MMG superstars are female artists. I look forward to clarifying my comments through my support.
Thank you to everyone who’s going through the journey with me, we coming out everyday stronger.
Listen, Rick Ross better not blow that VH1 check talking reckless.
Sometimes it’s best to leave some things unsaid.
