Rick Ross
just learned a hard lesson about rape and money ... you embrace one, you lose the other ... because he was just DUMPED by Reebok.

As TMZ previously reported ... Ross has taken a ton of heat for his song, U.O.E.N.O ... in which he happily sings, "Put Molly [Ecstasy] all in the champagne.  She ain't even know it.  I took her home and I enjoy that.  She ain't even know it."  Translation -- date rape.

Reebok tells TMZ ... "Reebok holds our partners to a high standard, and we expect them to live up to the values of our brand.  Unfortunately, Rick Ross has failed to do so."

Reebok goes on:  "While we do not believe that Rick Ross condones sexual assault, we are very disappointed he has yet to display an understanding of the seriousness of this issue or an appropriate level of remorse."

I stand my ground if his image was good enough before this song, then this was nothing. I don't feel bad for him really, but Reebok sold him out.

So what's the difference of a woman being raped in a movie? How does Eminem get away With what he says? A lot deeper. It's a song like its a movie

“It’s imaginary visual. If a writer write about somebody getting raped in a movie, that mean he a rapist or he want girls to get raped? No, he just wrote about that in a movie,” Meek said.

What does it really matter what rick ross raps about , that's how he gets money, and reebok is making money too. At the end of the day if you take it serious about his lyrics you need to listen to more rap cuz others talk of other crazy stuff...and molly isn't a date rape drug lol

And he isn't saying he would litetally take advantage of young girls, he is just trying to imply that girls get so wasted they don't even care that they don't remember what or who they did cuz their hoes anyway
