Meek Mill, Slim Thug and Earl Sweatshirt all call out Reebok for their decision to drop Rick Ross from the brand.
Reebok dropped Rick Ross yesterday, due to the controversy surrounding his highly publicized “U.O.E.N.O.” lyrics. Although the Bawse himself has yet to speak on the matter, other rappers defended and supported Rick Ross on Twitter, including Meek Mill, Slim Thug and Earl Sweatshirt.
“Reeboks right next 2 FILA when it come 2 sneaks that shit corny… I was only was feeling swizz & tyga projects… #boom,” Meek tweeted in support of Rozay.
Slim Thug had more lengthy thoughts to share on the turn of events. He said in a series of tweets, “[Reebok] ain’t care about all the dope he was rapping bout selling when they signed him but now they tripping after all that promo. All I’m saying is its a rap song and he didn’t say he bout to rape a bitch so he shouldn’t have lost a deal over it.”
He continued, “Before we know it rappers are not going to be able to curse no mo on their albums cause somebody whose not a rap fan was offended fuck that.”
Finally, Earl Sweatshirt blasted Reebok’s move, “this rick ross shit is ridiculous this nigga has been a prominent cocaine / mass murder rap bro since i was like 10 wtf fuck reebok,” said the Odd Future rapper. “niggas 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 fuck up.”
