Rocko Criticizes Reebok's Actions

Rick Ross's appearance on Rocko's "U.O.E.N.O." sparked one of the biggest controversies of 2013 thus far, with the MMG head at the center of a media firestorm over lyrics that many criticized as advocating date rape. In the aftermath of Ross losing his endorsement contract with Reebok, Rocko shared his thoughts on the situation, explaining why he feels Reebok's reaction wasn't warranted.
"As far as the Reebok thing, I don't think that was fair because what he brought to Reebok," he told MTV. "People in my neighborhood, in my city, they're back wearing Reeboks."
"It was a cardinal sin to wear Reebok before Ross started promoting 'em," Rocko explained. "Ross stepped in and he branded 'em and he got the urban market back in to 'em."
