Rick Ross admits he made a mistake when he said he hadn’t signed female artists to his label because he’d “end up f***ing” them.
Renzel issued an apology Thursday, backpedaling from his comments on the ‘Breakfast Club’ this week. If you missed it, Rick said, “I always thought, like, ‘I would end up f***ing a female rapper and f***ing the business up.”
He now says the remark was “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.”
Rick added in his apology … he has respect for women in the music industry and looks forward to working with and supporting female artists.
As for whether he’ll sign women to Maybach Music Group — “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.”
