Rick Ross has issued a statement acknowledging his rap on the Rocko song "U.O.E.N.O." is "offensive."

Ross had rapped about giving a woman ecstasy and hinted at having sex with her without her knowledge. Ross says the choice of words does not reflect his true heart and suggesting harm to a woman is one of his biggest mistakes and regrets.

Ross says men should know that using drugs to rob a woman of her right to make a choice is not just a crime, but wrong.

Women's rights groups criticized Ross over the song, and Reebok dropped its endorsement deal with Ross last week.
