Rick Ross is trying to do damage control after his lyrics from the track "U.O.E.N.O.," off of Rocko's most recent mixtape, sparked a controversy

The blogosphere went ablaze upon uncovering references to date rape in lines from the song, which also mentions the sexuality-inducing drug Molly. A Michigan radio station has even pulled the track from rotation, reports HipHopWired.com.

Now the multi-platinum artist has broken his silence over the negative press, clarifying his words on a New Orleans radio station. "I want to make it clear that woman is the most precious gift known to man," says Rozay. "There was some misinterpretation of the lyric. I would never use the term 'rape,' I wouldn't say that. Nobody condones that. I just want to reach out to all the queens, all the beautiful ladies, all the sexy ladies that have reached out to me because of the misunderstanding, and say we don't condone that."

The Maybach Music boss did not offer the full-fledged apology that many have been asking for, but trusts his fans get the message.
