In a recent development, Rick Ross, the Freebandz signee, has expressed his disapproval of Florida A&M University’s decision to suspend its football team. The suspension came after the release of a music video titled “Send a Blitz” by Real Boston Richey, which was shot in the university’s football team locker room and featured players in the background.
The university promptly responded to the video on Real Boston Richey’s Instagram post, stating that the video was unauthorized and that they are currently investigating the circumstances surrounding the shoot. They emphasized that the video does not align with their core values and commitment to excellence in all aspects, including athletics. Consequently, the football program was suspended pending the outcome of the investigation.
Rick Ross took to his own Instagram to share his perspective on the matter. He argued that the football players should not be held responsible for Real Boston Richey’s actions and questioned what they could have done differently upon discovering the video shoot in progress. Ross contended that identifying individuals with proper permits is the responsibility of the school authorities, not the players.
The situation has sparked a debate over who should be held accountable for the unauthorized video shoot on the university campus. Ross emphasized that as athletes, the players’ primary focus should be on their training and performance, and they should not be expected to intervene in such situations.
It remains to be seen how the investigation will unfold and what measures the university will take to prevent similar incidents in the future. Meanwhile, the controversy surrounding the “Send a Blitz” music video has brought attention to the need for stricter campus security and protocols regarding unauthorized filming and events.
