FILE - This Sept. 29, 2012 file photo shows Rick Ross performing at the BET Hip-Hop Honors at Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center, in Atlanta. Lil Wayne and Ross, two of the most celebrated and successful artists in rap today, recently lost major endorsements after protests forced high profile corporations to drop the rap stars. Both artists rapped lyrics deemed vulgar and over-the-top; one referring to rape, the other about the beating of Emmett Till, on songs where they were the featured acts.
