Rick Ross’ ‘Black Market’ Album Was Reportedly Pulled From Walmart Over A Donald Trump Lyric
Reports have surfaced concerning the sale of Rick Ross’ current album, Black Market. Walmart has reportedly shelved the MMG leader’s project due to a certain lyric over Donald Trump.
The circumstance was apparently brought to Walmart’s attention by a journalist named Mark Dice. Within the writer/media analyst’s video detailing his message to the multi-billion dollar company, Dice said Rozay’s line off the title track, which reads, “Assassinate Trump like I’m Zimmerman/ Now accept these words as they came from Eminem,” didn’t sit well with him and claims it incites terroristic threats.
In response to major retailers discontinuing the sale of the Dukes of Hazzard toys because of its relation to the Confederate flag, Dice said those same outlets should look into banning music from artists that promote terroristic thoughts. “They carry music from mainstream rappers that call for assassinations of leading presidential candidates,” he said.
Dice also revealed that he sent a complaint to iTunes, Amazon, Target and other companies, but those entities still carry the Miami native’s album. Walmart has yet to issue a response, but it’s unclear whether or not it’s just a glitch or if they actually adhered to Dice’s complaint.
This news surfaced a few weeks after the sales of Ross’ eighth studio album were made public. The total number of copies sold was reportedly over 50,000 stateside.
