MMG CEO Rick Ross is canceling the rest of his tour after reportedly receiving death threats from a street gang Gangster Disciples. Rick Ross has yet to speak on the matter. Live Nation Entertainment, the company behind the tour issued a statement saying that fans who bought tickets to the concerts would receive refunds. The Gangster Disciples have beef with Ross for using their signature six-point star on his recent Black Bar Mitzvah mix-tape and his mention of their leader, Larry Hoover, who is currently serving time in prison, in the street anthem “B.M.F. (Blowin’ Money Fast).”The North Carolina chapter of the gang recently tried to intimidate Ross with a YouTube video, warning him to stay out of Charlotte. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police released a statement Wednesday reassuring fans that safety is their number one priority in this situation.
The MMG CEO will take ownership of the 20565 Old Cutler Road location in Miami. Ross will make a special, open to the public appearance at the location Tuesday, October 9, from 2 to 5 pm.
