Rick Ross must be catching a lot of heat for his comments about having female artist on his label MMG so he issued an apology. Earlier this week, Rick Ross said the reason he doesn’t have any women signed to his label is because he would be tempted to sleep with them. Many people found his comments to be misogynistic and sexist. The Boss hopped on his Facebook page to say, My entire empire’s backbone is led by 2 of the strongest people I know and they happen to be women, my mother and sister. The operations wouldn’t run without them and I have the highest regard and respect for women in this industry. I have a daughter myself, my most cherished gift in the world.

Check out the full apology below.

I want to address an insensitive comment I made on a very sensitive issue, especially in a minority dominated industry like hip hop. My entire empire’s backbone is led by 2 of the strongest people I know and they happen to be women, my mother and sister. The operations wouldn’t run without them and I have the highest regard and respect for women in this industry. I have a daughter myself, my most cherished gift in the world.  My comment is not reflection of my beliefs on the issue. A mistake I regret. I hope to use my mistake, my platform and the community to create positive discussion to implement change on a very important issue. respect for the ones who stand up to say hey that isn’t right. Now it’s time to accept responsibility and all do better.  I look forward to continue working with & supporting female artists. my discovery process was documented by VH1 on #signed which premiered last night. Many of the most talented artists you’ll see in the running to be the next #MMG superstars are female artists. I look forward to clarifying my comments through my support.  Thank you to everyone who’s going through the journey with me, we coming out everyday stronger.

Boss
