Rick Ross #BlackMarket Album Reported Removed From Wal-mart Online
Wal-Mart has reportedly pulled Rick Ross’ Black Market album. The LP is no longer available for purchase in the online store.
Video blogger Mark Dice says that he petitioned the retail giant, as well as iTunes, Amazon and Target, to stop selling the album because of a line on “Free Enterprise” about threatening to kill presidential candidate Donald Trump.
“Assassinate Trump like I’m Zimmerman / Now accept these words as they came from Eminem,” the Miami rapper says on the track, referencing George Zimmerman, the man who shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in 2012. “Democratic party sentenced to the pendulum / Killing them, I voted for Andre Benjamin.”
Dice says that Wal-Mart acted quickly to remove Confederate Flags this summer in the intensifying controversy over the symbol, so he questions the company’s rationale behind the selection of music sold.
