Maybach Music Group’s Meek Mill and Odd Future’s Earl Sweatshirt are the latest hip-hop artists to rally behind Rick Ross in light of Reebok cutting ties with him this week.
Rather than sugarcoat his words, Meek went in on Reebok for letting go of his boss.
“Reeboks right next 2 FILA when it come 2 sneaks that sh*t corny… I was only was feeling swizz & tyga projects… #boom,” Meek tweeted April 12th. (Meek Mill’s Twitter)
The Odd Future group member surprisingly rallied behind Ricky and put Reebok on blast.
“this rick ross shit is ridiculous this n*gga has been a prominent cocaine / mass murder rap bro since i was like 10 wtf f*ck reebok,” Earl tweeted.
“n*ggas need to get off his head. if you like how his music sounds than listen to it. if you dont then dont listen to it and shut the f*ck up” (Earl Sweatshirt’s Twitter)
Yesterday, Houston’s Slim Thug vouched his support for the rapper and questioned why things turned sour.
“Damn haters won RT @TMZ: #Breaking Reebook Gives Rick Ross The Boot http://tmz.me/10RJbY2,” Thug tweeted April 11th.
“So why they don’t protest Eminem for all that crazy sh*t he be saying???”
“And I know they ain’t listening to UOENO so why they give a f*ck http://instagram.com/p/X-l8Dvv6ea/”
“And I never seen a b*tch pass out on a Molly they stay up all night so how is that rape? U.O.E.N.O” (Slim Thug’s Twitter)
The renowned sneaker company broke the news of its decision to part ways with Ricky yesterday.
Athletic goods retailer Reebok on Thursday terminated its relationship with rapper Rick Ross, whose song featuring lyrics that seem to boast about drugging and raping a woman has caused an uproar. “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,” Reebok, a subsidiary of Germany company Adidas, said in a statement. “At this time, it is in everyone’s best interest for Reebok to end its partnership with Mr. Ross,” it said. Ross had an endorsement deal with the company and promoted its shoes in print and TV commercials. (Reuters)
