Rick Ross Apologized For Saying He'd Expect Sex From Female Protégés
The comments had "pushed every stereotype women have to deal with in this industry," one music executive said.
On Thursday evening, Rick Ross apologized for incendiary comments he made earlier this week about not signing women to his record label, Maybach Music Group.
In an interview with The Breakfast Club on Tuesday, the rapper and mogul said he never wanted to sign women because "I would end up fucking a female rapper and fucking the business up."
It wasn't the first time Ross had been accused of misogyny. In 2013, he temporarily lost a sponsorship deal with Reebok after fans cried foul over lyrics that seemed to glorify date rape.
Karen Civil, an independent hip-hop marketing executive, told BuzzFeed News that Ross had "pushed every stereotype that we as women, especially black women, have to deal with in this industry."
In his apology, which he posted to Facebook, Ross said he had been "insensitive" and that he wants to "continue working with & supporting female artists."
BuzzFeed News has reached out to a representative for Rick Ross for comment.
