Rick Ross Apologizes For Comments About Signing Female Rappers
“I look forward to continue working with and supporting female artists.”
Earlier this week, during an appearance on The Breakfast Club, Rick Ross made some controversial comments about why he has no interest in signing a female rapper to his label, Maybach Music Group.
The bawse stated, “You know, I never did it because I always thought that like I would end up f—ing the female rapper [and then] f—ing the business up.”
“I’m so focused on my business. I gotta be honest with you. You know, she looking good and I’m spending so much money on the photoshoots…I gotta f— a couple times.”
While some fans respected Ross for being honest, many were offended by his misogynistic comments. Following Ross’ interview with TBC, he was met with a slew of criticism on social media, stemming him to issue an apology on Facebook.
Renzel wrote, “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.”
