Video: Talib Kweli Talks Rick Ross Lyrics on Hot 97

Kweli sparked some non-troversy earlier this week after he called in to a Huffington Post Live discussion hosted by Marc Lamont Hill about Rick Ross Rape-gate. Although Kweli took Ross to task for his irresponsible date rape themed lyrics on “U.O.E.N.O.”, he was still attacked on social media for what some people construed as his apologist attitude towards Ross’ actions and rape culture in general. In the above clip, Kweli calls into Hot 97 and clarifies some of his points in a conversation with Ebro.
