Rick Ross has finally responded to the uproar surrounding his lyrics on the song “U.O.E.N.O.” that seem to make light of and condone date rape.

In an interview with  New Orleans radio station Q93.3, Ross says the lyrics have been misinterpreted, that he does not condone rape, and that he loves and respects women.
