[photogallerylink id=34074 align=left]Looks like Rick Ross is not welcome everywhere in the ATL. According to The Jasmine Brand, students at Georgia State University are protesting Rick Ross’ scheduled homecoming performance on Friday.

A student at the University; Ayesha Kirk told a local television station:

“We don’t understand why the lyrics are this way. Why is this an artist that we support? Why are we spending thousands of dollars on this message?”

Kirk specifically addresses disapproval for the lyrics of Ross’ song “9 Piece”.

“He is known for raps that discuss drugs, money and sex. In his song titled ‘9 Piece’ Ross says, ‘I’m selling dope straight off my iPhone.'”

Georgia State has a no-drug policy that includes expulsion from the university for those who violate the policy. Georgia State is using a portion of the fees all 30,000 students pay in order to fund the concert.

Thoughts??
