Rick Ross Says He Avoids Signing Women to His Music Label

On a recent appearance on the NY radio show "The Breakfast Club", host Angela Yee asked Ross why his label doesn't represent female artists.

"You know I never did it because I always thought I would end up f*cking the female rapper and f*cking the business up", he explained.

The Wingstop entrepreneur continued to stick his foot in his mouth, adding, "I'm so focused on my business. I gotta f-k a couple times". If I'm a female rapper and have a choice between getting signed to MMG by having sex with Ross, and not having a record deal at all, I'll be assed out on that deal.

"Most definitely, if she was a youngster that I felt was, you know, bringing something to the table that's dope", he said, mentioning his collaboration with 25-year-old Brianna Perry, whom he called "family".

The rapper is a mentor on new VH1 show "Signed", where acts audition to be signed to his label. "That's why labels only release a new female MC every few years", former Vibe editor-in-chief Mimi Valdes said in 2007. In 2013 his verse on Rocko's "U.O.E.N.O." nearly costed him his Reebok sneaker deal where it alluded to date rape ("Put Molly all in her champagne, she ain't even know it / I took her home and I enjoyed that, she ain't even know it").

This doesn't excuse his earlier comments, which imply that his desire to have sex with a female rapper would end up being more important than her career. You can view the interview in its entirety below (the female rapper discussion starts at the 8:45 mark).
