Meek Mill Defends Controversial Rick Ross Lyrics
Meek Mill’s Dreams Come True tour landed in Washington, DC, where he sat down with 93.9 WKYS to talk about his upcoming “Dreamchasers 3″ mixtape, as well as his book, “Tony Story.” The rapper also addressed the rumor mill that has churned out a number of stories on his as of late.
In his interview with the radio station, the rapper divulged a few guests that will be appearing on the project, including Akon, Jadakiss, Future and Tory Lanez. Meek also shared the details behind his “Tony Story” book, out May 1.
“Tony Story was a story I told on my album and my mixtapes, part one and part two. You know, people liked it a lot, it became popular so I decided to make a book about it,” he said. “I basically co-wrote the whole thing. I just had somebody rewrite it and make it more visually into a book. But basically I wrote it.”
As the probing moved on to the controversy, Meek Mill also addressed recent stories that have been reported about him. The rapper denied charging fans for pictures (though he did point to other artists that do), as well as making a move on rapper Tyga’s girlfriend Blac Chyna. Meek also denounced bloggers while clearing the air.
“When the bloggers try to attack you, they try to attack you man. I bought a girl a Bentley, I’m coming at Tyga baby mom, I’m charging for pictures. Once they attacking you, they attacking you and they don’t stop.
Meek also took a side on the debate surrounding Rick Ross’ controversial lyrics on Rockos’ “U.O.E.N.O. (You Ain’t Even Know It).” Ross has gained negative attention for spitting “Put molly all in her champagne, she ain’t even know it/Put molly all in her champagne, she ain’t even know it,” which has raised eyebrows in regards to date rape. Not surprisingly, Meek defends his MMG leader.
“Biggie said ‘rape ya kid, throw her over the bridge.’ Back then it was nothing, it was just hip-hop. Now you got all these weirdos on these social sites, voicing their opinion about something anybody say, I don’t care,” he said, “[..] Rap songs always been talking about killing, drugs, all types of stuff. So you can’t just criticize no one thing anybody says. It’s an imaginary visual. If a writer writes about somebody getting raped in a movie, that means he a rapist or he wants girls to get raped? No, he just wrote about that in a movie.”
