Rocko To Replace Rick Ross On Alternate Version Of

Young Jeezy to possibly be included on a radio-friendly version of Rocko's controversial record, "U.O.E.N.O."

With both the popularity of “U.O.E.N.O.” and the controversy surrounding the record, the song’s creator, Atlanta rapper Rocko, has found himself in a position where he may “have to change” the record if he hopes to take the song to mainstream radio.

Rocko spoke on the record, which has been engulfed in controversy thanks to Rick Ross’ verse, during an interview with New York City’s Hot 97 earlier today.

“The record instantly became a smash over the All-Star Weekend and stuff like that. It just became a smash in the streets. So with me, I feel like I’m a street artist so I feel like the record with Ross that will always be the original record,” Rocko explained. “But because of the type of attraction the record has as far as like radio and all over the country and things of that nature it puts me in a position to where I have to change it.”

The “U.O.E.N.O.” crafter later revealed that there are quite a number of artists who have recorded verses for a new version of the song. Among those artists is Young Jeezy who Rocko confirmed did pen a verse for the song but couldn’t confirm if the rapper will in fact appear on the updated version.

“In life you have to put everything on the scale,” said Rocko. “You know what I’m saying? If it’s not weighing up then you just have to do what you have to do. With all respect to the homie Ross…It’s crazy because it’s a Catch 22. Cause it’s like I don’t want to take him off…It doesn’t matter who I put on the song that’s gonna always be the original version of it. It’s not like I can do another verse and be like, ‘Okay, this the original right here.’”

    Rocko, tha track is hard! leave it alone! Ross verse had a strong element to the song! It's authentic, why bootleg it?

      At last somebody speaks the truth. There is absolutely nothing special about this track.

      I hate rap & I hate hip-hop. My little brother made me hear this when we were driving through Brooklyn. This song was written for any man familiar with women. I thought Rocko ruined his own tune with that ghetto rat verse,here I learn it was Ross! That verse about being a pathetic scumbag convinced he's the cream of the crop, ruins the entire song. So does the second verse later that mimicks its content. So many are 100% right that nobody give a f***k how cool you think you are, or how you roll. The aspect of taking pride in yourself to afford the best, only to find the girl you wish to impress is too stupid to know it; is an almost universal experience. If Rocko focused the rest around that & where to go once you realize, "if she can't even appreciate luxuries like these, how the f***k can she even recognize what I am?" Instead you have a great hook drowning in typical ghetto rat manure.

    HE HAD TO CHANGE HIS versus and "He aint even know it"
  • Anonymizzle
    He could do that or, he could just ask Ross to write a different verse... Preferably one which doesn't evoke the word "rape" when someone reads it.

    Don't do it Rocko. It will dilute your brand and kill your buzz. Jeezy is fake BMF. Ross is the real deal.

      Jeezy is a real BMF. Ross is a fake gangster who was a cop.
