There is a very specific reason Rick Ross doesn't have any female rappers on his MMG label.
“You know I never did it because I always thought I would end up fucking the female rapper and fucking the business up,” he explained on The Breakfast Club. “I’m so focused on my business, you know, I gotta be honest with you. She’s looking good, I’m spending so much money on her photo shoots. I gotta fuck a couple of times.”

This isn't the first time Rick Ross has waded uncomfortably into sexual politics.
In 2013, Ross had to apologize for his verse on the Rocko track ‘U.O.E.N.O,’ which seemingly promoted drugging women and taking advantage of them.
“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,” Ross rapped.He's getting some Twitter backlash for his latest words.

I like Rick Ross, but that comment made him seem unprofessional. He's a grown man. He should be able to control his hormones— King Ali (@KingRemyMa) July 25, 2017

What do you think? Were Ross's comments "problematic" or was he just goofing around?
