After protesters came for Young Money rapper Tyga at Harvard University the YMCMB rap star is weighing in on Rick Ross’ controversial “U.O.E.N.O.” lyrical backlash!
Tyga who is NOT a rapper who promotes “sexism and rape culture” according to a protest group at Harvard who is now attacking artists that have nothing to do with Rick Ross.
Tyga is part of Young Money and his label which is run by Birbman and Mack Maine and is only affiliated to Maybach Music Group. They’re NOT the ones in question, but the verse that has caused women’s groups to protest against rap artists is at the blame of Rick Ross for his irresponsible usage of lyrics.
He has tried to clarify his mishap as a misunderstanding, but even rappers like Talin Kweli isn’t buying the poor excuse. Rosay has even had his artist Meek Mill speak out about the controversial song that keeps making negative press only making the issue worse with his poor explanation. The backlash against Rick Ross has been swarming around the MMG label over the past two weeks and now it’s beginning to give all rappers a bad name.
It only takes one irresponsible rapper to be stupid with his lyrics to ruin a good thing for everyone.
Now, in an interview with Justin Credible, Tyga defended Ross’s “freedom of speech” and said that critics should remember it’s not actually Rick Ross’s song.
Tyga spoke out regarding Freedom of Speech:
“It’s like freedom of speech.”
“People act like they don’t condone it. Like you can’t say what you feel. You know what I’m saying? It’s just stupid. What he said that’s just freedom of speech. It wasn’t even his record. For them to do all that off of a mixtape song that wasn’t even his is kinda like – You just got those groups they just wanna [petition].” Tyga’s upcoming performance at Harvard University is also being boycotted by a women’s advocacy group who believe his music promotes “sexism and rape culture.”
After the Rick Ross backlash has reached to the Young Money camp, Tyga was compelled to speak on the issue at hand, saying in a video:
“I wanted to speak on that because this weekend I’m performing at Harvard, which is one of the most prestigious universities in the world.”
“There’s a group on campus that are protesting to not have me perform because of my lyrics. And they said I promote sexism and rape culture…At the end of the day people have the right to have opinions. I have the right to have an opinion. And I have the right to say what I want on my music cause it’s my music. If you don’t like it, don’t click on it, don’t download it. I think it’s just getting out of hand with the whole like people looking into it too much.”
Now we understand what Tyga is saying when he states its not Rick Ross’ song, but it is Ross’ lyrics on Rocko’s song. Even though he tried to give Ross a bone. Ross is still to blame for his irresponsible lyrics.
The next thing we want to point out is Freedom of Speech is one thing, but promoting negativity is not absolute in any country and the right is commonly subject to limitations, as with libel, slander, obscenity, sedition (including, for example inciting ethnic hatred), copyright violation, revelation of information that is classified or otherwise.
It a lose lose battle for Ross who NEEDS to apologize to every one at this point. When will rappers take responsibility to irresponsible lyrics?
