Rick Ross apologizes for sexist comments he made about hiring women after backlash

Rapper, Rick Ross has apologized for the extremely insensitive comments he made on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club on Monday.

During the interview, Rick Ross was asked why he never signed any female artiste to his Maybach Music Group label and he replied, “You know, I never did it because I always thought, like, I would end up f–king the female rapper and f–king the business up. I’m so focused on my business. I gotta be honest with you. She’s lookin’ good, I’m spending so much money on her photo shoots—I gotta f–k a couple times”.

After receiving the right dose of backlash, the rapper has now backtracked on that statement with an apology he shared on Facebook.

He wrote:
"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."
