NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Teens, parents and New York City Council members joined together Wednesday to denounce music artists using controversial lyrics they contend promote date rape.
The protesters especially took issue with rapper Rick Ross and his music.
“For those who may not know, Rick Ross put out a song on how to date rape a female. What’s wrong about it is that as a 15 year old, it affects me. And this is what’s being played on the radio and in TV,” one teen told reporters, including 1010 WINS’ Stan Brooks.
