FILE - This Sept. 29, 2012 file photo shows Rick Ross performing at the BET Hip-Hop Honors at Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center in Atlanta. Ross says critics have misinterpreted his recent lyrics on Rocko's “U.O.E.N.O” after uproar from women's advocacy groups. Ross raps about giving a woman the drug MDNA, known as molly, and having his way with a woman in the song, “and she ain't even know it.” Thought the song came out in January, the lyrics gained widespread notice last week when women's groups began to complain. Petitions were also issued, including one asking Reebok to withdraw its advertising agreement with Ross. The Miami-based rapper said in an interview on New Orleans' Q93.3 that “There was a misunderstanding with the lyric, a misinterpretation.” He says the term rape was never used and it's not something condoned by him, his camp or hip-hop in general.
