Jay-Z and wife Beyonce went to Cuba to celebrate their 5 year wedding anniversary and received criticism from those who want to continue the unjust 50 year old blockade on the island of Cuba.
Some called for an investigation into the vacation which was approved by the United States government. In their opinion this trip helped the image of the Cuban government which they have opposed ever since the Cuban revolution in 1959.
Hip Hop activist and the 2008 Green Party Vice Presidential candidate Rosa Clemente calls out Rick Ross on new verse talking about slipping Molly to a female without her knowledge and then raping her.
The name of the song is “You Ain’t Even Know It” by Rocko featuring Rick Ross.
He raps “Put molly all in the champagne, she ain’t even know it
I took her home and I enjoy that, she aint even know it”.
Besides promoting the drug Molly to our youth which seems to be mentioned in every mainstream rap song (they must have all gotten the memo), Ross is now promoting rape and telling you how to use Molly to do so.
Rosa Clemente decided to respond to Rick Ross with a video released on YouTube condemning what she describes is a rape culture in which the promotion of rape and the domination of women in general is normal, accepted and tolerated.
She calls on men to speak out against this rape culture and to make their voices heard in regards to lyrics like these.
Check out her appeal below and expose the poison that the industry is promoting to people.
