Rick Ross apologizes for controversial Breakfast Club comments

"My comment is not reflection of my beliefs"

Rick Ross stirred up controversy after an appearance on The Breakfast Club this week. The Maybach Music Group mogul turned heads with comments about why he hasn't signed female artists to his label. "You know, I never did it because I always thought, like, I would end up f--king the female rapper and f--king the business up," he said. Those comments have since come back to haunt the rapper, who has now issued an apology on the controversial remarks.

Taking to Facebook, Ross addressed the "insensitive comment" and expressed regret. "My comment is not reflection of my beliefs on the issue. A mistake I regret," he wrote. "I hope to use my mistake, my platform and the community to create positive discussion to implement change on a very important issue. respect for the ones who stand up to say hey that isn't right. Now it's time to accept responsibility and all do better."

I want to address an insensitive comment I made on a very sensitive issue, especially in a minority dominated industry...
