Rick Ross Statement Amid Trayvon Martin Lyric Backlash
Rick Ross is staying controversial with his new single “Black & White” upon the anniversary of the death of Trayvon Martin!
Despite the date rape lyric controversy and the loss of his endorsement deal with Reebok, the Maybach Music leader is heating things up again! Rosay has come under fire this time because of his lyric about Trayvon Martin on the track “Black & White.”
In the new single “Black & White” Ross raps:
“Too close to a ni**a as a mother**king bomb
Trayvon Martin, I’m never missing my target
B*tch ni**as hating, tell me it’s what I’m parking
Wingstop owner, lend me pepper aroma
Young, black ni**a, barely got a diploma”
After being attacked on social media, this time Rick Ross has issued the following statement to VIBE on to clear up the backlash:
“It’s so important that today, on the two-year anniversary of the death of Trayvon Martin, we never forget that tragedy. I’m never going to let the world forget that name. In my song ‘Black and White’ off Mastermind I say, ‘Trayvon Martin, I’m never missing my target’. There I’m reminding people that if you’re a black person or a person of any color for that matter in this country, you have to be accurate, whatever moves you make, stay accurate. Even when you’re walking down the street, playing music from your car, you have to stay on point.
“Black men are being killed and their killers [are] beating the trial. It hasn’t been this much violence against black men since the ’60s. I am Trayvon Martin, we’re all Trayvon Martin. He was from South Florida. That could have been me or one of my homies. So, stay alert and never miss your target. Whatever that target may be. Getting out the hood, providing from your family. Stay sharp. Stay alive. Trayvon, Rest in Peace.”
