Dear Rick Ross, About Your Slipping Molly Lyrics… No.

Rick Ross, the rapper with moobs has earned this sternly-worded letter for being a disrespectful misogynistic jackass through his music.

RickRossSlippingMolly

Dear Rick Ross,

You came out with a song with the following lyrics:

“Put molly all in her champagne, she ain’t even know it. I took her home and I enjoyed that, she ain’t even know it.”

*clutches pearls*

What is Fuckery gif

I am to tell you that you need gather your life because it is clearly not all together. Some of it is scattered in the corner, and some of it might be lost under your giant mammaries. It ain’t together!

How in the hell did you think uttering those words FOR RECORD was okay? When did date rape become the topic for bragging rights, Rozay??? NEVER, that’s when. Ok, maybe in the mid-90s and early 2000s, when the uncle of misogynistic rap, Eminem dedicated a whole album (Marshall Mathers LP) to his hate of women. And I feel ULTRA guilty because I used to love that CD.

“Bitch I’ma kill you, you don’t wanna fuck with me. Bitch it’s true you ain’t nothing but a slut to me… “Bitch I’ma kill you like a murder weapon I will conceal you…” I actually rapped those words out loud before, bobbing my head to the dope beat. I feel TERRIBLE. But I have grown. I know better.

Still. You might not be the first to say some insensitive ass shit about women through rap or song (I surely won’t go into the history of misogyny in music because that post would be an encyclopedia) but that doesn’t mean we should let this one slide.

No parts of those lyrics is ok. NONE OF IT. You’re talmbout slipping a roofie into a woman’s drink, taking her home and having your way with her and not having her remember it. HELLO, RAPE CULTURE!

If we all need proof that we live in a society that perpetuates violence against women, you don’t have to look far. ALL the people who heard this song before it got released thought it was fine? Seriously. That’s not cool!  The fact that you wrote those lyrics down, spit them unto the mic, approved them to go on this song and then released them means at no point did anyone tell you “hey. maybe you shouldn’t say that.” You can your crew felt it was perfectly reasonable to boast about date raping a woman. And then the label allowed it to come out?

Shame gif

There was NO one who was all “Hey BAWSE. Chill on that?” That in itself is problematic. I blame you first for uttering this garbage but I also blame the fools who gave it the thumbs up for public consumption.

And someone somewhere is gonna defend that line, telling us “chill, it’s just music.” Because,  you know, date rape is cool to rap about. As long as it has a good beat. O__O I want to tell them to get the entire hell out along with you. It’s not just music.

Music is NOT just music. For those who will say “it’s just music” then you don’t know how the human brain works. It’s deeper than that. Music has the ability to sink in our minds and connect with people’s thoughts and emotions in a way nothing else can. Why do you think music is used for therapy? It’s incredibly powerful.

Those lyrics will connect with someone. Kids (and some adults) who look up to Rick Ross are gonna listen to him slipping someone a molly and “she don’t even know it” and some will think it’s ok. They’ll think that behavior is normal and justifable.

This rape culture we live in tries to cut women down to size at any chance, and all our lives we’ve had to fight like Miss Sophia. Just so people can treat our bodies with respect. And here you come with this garbage. I’m not here for it.

I need to put on your GOOD bra, step up to someone’s podium and apologize for being an irresponsible misogynistic prick. And then tell people that it’s really not okay. And then at the end of that day, take off your bra and lay your burdens down next to your face chain and re-assess your lifespace.

rick ross bra

Art is subjective but artists can also be held accountable for their work when they perpetuate a culture that is damaging to us all.

GET YOUR LIFE, RICK ROSS!!! Also, none of this lends you street cred. We still remember you were a cop. We will never forget.

LuvBug

P.S. You really need to start wearing shirts more often. For reasons. Your nipples point down at your feet and no one is here for that.

P.P.S. Can people stop rapping about molly now? I’m tired of hearing that heffa’s name.

So what do y’all think about Rick Ross’ music and this latest foolishment?

    That anyone..would even…sir. I’m actually at a loss. First Wayne’s Emmett Till reference not this. I am a child of the hip hop era, a college gradate of this here incredibly ratchet chapter in rap. I luhhh me some Ricky Rozzay trap music..matter of fact I have a Pandora station dedicated to him. I know the lyrics are abhorrent, the content subpar. But to brag about drugging, and having non-consensual sex with a woman, who is drugged to the point that she’s unaware of it happening?!? There need to be some decency limits, damn !

    Agreed. Anyone who feels that it is okay to even utter that statement definitely needs to evaluate their existence. This gives me the sombers.

    This is why I side eye and sigh when people tell ME I’m getting “too upset” about rape culture. There are REASONS to be upset.

    This lyric is just plain trash. I hate that I ever jigged to Hustlin now. But the worst part about his lyric and all the other garbage out there, rappers keep getting the pass of OH THAT’S HOW WE DO!! Nawwwwwwwwwww.

    Or my favorite. “Boys being boys!”

    They can miss me with that bullshit, grow up, read a book, hell Google will read you one now and days, and start acting like they have a tiny bit of morals.

    And how can you write lyrics like that and have kids?!

    Welp we know how he got women before he had money o_O……..this is disturbing for so many reasons. A friend and I were just talking about this stuff last night. People let SO much stuff slide these days and its actually a bit frightening. Where’s the line anymore? It seems to have disappeared. Nothing is sacred or beyond their ignorant ass reach. I just……this is exactly why I don’t listen to the radio anymore. I’m 28 years old in the car yelling “what the hell are these kids listening to!” like my momma……I didn’t like who I saw in the rearview mirror and stopped listening to the radio lol. Me and my ipod and my chosen music do just fine lol

    I never liked his or this current generation of “rappers” for this very reason. They are absolute trash as “artists” and as human beings. I have a sincere hatred for them that just won’t quit.

    I’m not surprised that Boobies the Fool decided to put this into his lyrics. He’s a hot, melted mess of a dirt-smeared snowman, and he needs to retire somwhere in the same city retirement home as Ja Rule, 50 Cent, and the rest of No Limit.

    I’m a teacher and it pains me that this is the trash that our youth listens and looks up to. In the school at which I teach, there are so many students without the proper guidance at home and it’s apparent that they are taking their life lessons from Lil Wayne, Rick Ross and the like. All I can do is SMH.

    So far over the line, and like others have said, I’m glad you called him on it. It is a crying shame that no one said a word before the song was recorded, but at least you did what you could. Disgusting.

    I agree that the line was distasteful. But is it any less distasteful to publicly ridicule his appearance and weight?

    How do we know Rozay doesnt stay up late at night crying into his satin pillow and binge eating krispy kremes, upset because people say his nipples sag and point down? (And what is he to do about this? Turn them back up!?)

    Or feeling the weight of depression because he is emotionally affected by comments that he should wear a bra? It’s not cool to promote date rape, but its also not cool to make fun of someone’s appearance.

    Insensitivity in any form can perpetuate a damaging culture and morally corrosive group-think behavior. To resist this, we should all strive to embrace positivity and mutual human respect.

    Actually Molly is slang for MDMA(Ecstasy) powder/crystals, not Roofies. Just thought I would point that out. *Runs* THis BS though is so not okay, like you would think a former Cop would know better. How did no one go Nawl son this is not cool, LIke not Rocko(whose song it is) Not Future(who was also a featured artisit) told MR Moobs to sit down with that mess. The fact that everyone thought this was okay doesn’t sit right with me.

    Also I too think MOlly needs to go take her overplayed ass on Vacay or something cause damn! I blame Trinidad James.

    I never liked his shiny fat behind or his music. I am not surprised at this. No one even blinks at the ratchedness coming from these buffoons. He needs to be dragged about this.

    What I wanna know is, if it is illegal for me as a woman to walk around with my boobs exposed to the public, why is he allowed to? I find his scribbled-on udders positively offensive and I ain’t here for all of that.

    Sad thing is someone is paying him to spout this trash. Why don’t we hold producers responsible for letting their little dog crap this ish out on the airways? Not only is it not okay to be pro-rape in his lyrics it is also not ok to talk about cappin’ a brother because he didnt give due respect. The sooner we scream no to the radio stations and their sponsors the quicker we can stop the desensitization. Let’s face it producers up on high mainly pay black rappers to promote the killin, raping, and drugging and the white artists don’t even say this stuff in proportion to what black artists do. Look it up. “An Air Quality Experiment Document”

    Don’t you just hate feminist…. what he did was wrong but throwing Eminem under the bus? Music is not shown to have a deep psychological effect except on vocabulary. Thirdly, our society doesn’t degrade women, a few rich rappers degrade women so stop throwing all men under the bus for violence against women.
