The heat has definitely been on Rick Ross this week after he left fans outraged when he rapped the lyrics, “put a molly in her champagne / she ain’t even know it, I took her home and enjoyed that,” in a new song titled, “U.O.E.N.O.” Since the track dropped, folks have been outraged that a rapper could blatantly talk about date rape in a song with no repercussions.

Today, during a promo stop in New Orleans, Rick Ross made his way down to Q 93.3 radio station to clear up the drama while saying that his lyrics were misinterpreted.

I wanted to come down to the radio station. There is certain things you can’t tweet, you have to verbalize. I want to make sure this is clear, that woman is the most precious gift known to man, you understand? It was a misunderstanding with a lyric, a misinterpretation where the term rape wasn’t used. I would never use the term rape. As far as my camp, hip hop don’t condone that. The streets don’t condone that. Nobody condones that. So I wanted to reach out to all the queens that’s on my timeline, all the sexy ladies, the beautiful ladies that have been reaching out to me with the misunderstanding. We don’t condone rape and I’m not with that.

On if he believes that people are being too sensitive regarding lyrics
I think that’s a good thing at the same time. Sometimes I think it’s our job as an artist to clarify the sensitive things and the things that we know really need to be clarified, such as a situation as this. The boss ain’t with that. We ain’t with that. Double M ain’t with that. And that’s what it’s about.
