Rapper Rick Ross explains lyrics on `U.O.E.N.O.'

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -

Rapper Rick Ross says critics have misinterpreted his lyrics on Rocko's "U.O.E.N.O" after uproar from women's advocacy groups.

   Ross raps about giving a woman the drug MDMA, known as Molly, and having his way with a woman in the song, "and she ain't even know it."

   Although the song was released in January, the lyrics gained widespread notice last week when women's groups began to complain.

 Petitions were issued, including one asking Reebok to withdraw its advertising agreement with Ross.

   The Miami-based rapper said in an interview on New Orleans' Q93.3 that "there was a misunderstanding with the lyric, a misinterpretation." He says the term "rape" was never used and it's not something condoned by him, his camp or hip-hop in general.

   Messages to Ross' publicist weren't returned.
