Rick Ross' label, MMG, named after a type of luxury vehicle that doesn't exist anymore, has never had a female rapper, unless you count Wale.
In an interview with the Breakfast Club, Rawse said that this was because if a female rapper were signed to MMG he'd probably try to fuck her.
I can kinda see where Rawse is coming from.
Obviously, she'd be attractive, if Rawse signed her to MMG, and who among us, by show of hands, can be around an attractive woman without having inappropriate sexual thoughts? The only way that would be possible is if you were gay, in which case this question wasn't meant for you. I should have specified before I asked. My bad.
Then there's the amount of money Rawse would have to spend on a female rapper, buying her outfits from a store called Eclectics, which is next door to a church in the town where I went to college, and paying professional photographers to take pictures of her. He could take pictures of her himself, with an iPhone, but a lot of magazines won't run photos you took yourself, using your phone.
If you're spending that much money on a girl, you're going to want to have sex with her, if only because who else is spending that much money on her? Arguably, it would be impolite for a girl to let a guy spend that much money on her and then go have sex with some other guy who just took her to McDonald's and let her order from the McPick Two menu.
You'd think that people wouldn't be too upset about what Rawse said, because he's literally explaining why he won't take advantage of a woman . . . and you'd be sadly mistaken.
When the Breakfast Club video hit the Internets the other day, it touched off a tsunami-like wave of virtue signaling, the likes of which hadn't been seen since it was revealed that Arruh is holding aspiring female R&B singers hostage in a McMansion in Duluth, GA, as discussed in a recent edition of Life in a Shanty Town, and before that, the Million Vagina March.
The hosts of the Breakfast Club were so concerned that they ran another segment, in which they let people who actually listen to the Breakfast Club on the radio (who didn't sound like they were on their way to work) call up and weigh in on the matter. I thought the guy who said that women were being overly sensitive brought up a good point.
Charlamagne Tha God pointed out that the reason he laughed so loud in the first video was because he appreciated the fact that Rawse was being so honest about something other rappers wouldn't admit to, not because he wanted to be on the record as sorta kinda disagreeing with Rawse, in case this turned out to be another "U.O.E.N.O."
This past weekend, there was a separate, somewhat related controversy, having to do with something comedian Lil Duval said about killing a transgender woman if she tried to pull the ol' last minute surprise on him. In that case as well, Charlamagne Tha God et al. tried to make it seem as if this was an especially humorous joke that Duval just told, but I'm pretty sure he was dead serious.
As many a blowhard on Black People Twitter pointed out, there's a mini epidemic (the numbers have skyrocketed percentage-wise, but it's still just a small handful of people) of transgender women being killed. I wonder if these are mostly scenarios like the one Lil Duval laid out. I would suggest that transgender women consider not trying to play tricks on people that, but that would be transphobic.
But I digress.
At the height of the BS controversy surrounding Rawse's comments on signing a female rapper to MMG, it was suggested (by Combat Jack, natch) that this might be the thing that ends Rawse's career. But I knew this wouldn't lead to much other than a BS apology, issued via a screencap of some text, on Twitter. I mean, if Arruh was accused of leading a gross sex cult, and nothing really came of that. Rawse hasn't even done anything.
We'll know to be concerned if it's announced that a female rapper has signed to MMG.
