Rick Ross Explains Maybach Music Group Tour Cancellation
Rick Ross is denying reports that he canceled the second leg of his Maybach Music Tour due to video threats from the notorious Gangster Disciples gang. The Bawse visited radio station 99 Jamz in his hometown of Miami to clarify the situation.
In the interview, Rozay accused concert promoter Shawn Gee of not handling their business properly by canceling several shows in the southwest region without his consent. "I just felt like that was some power that I needed to take away from homey, so I canceled the rest of the dates that I had arranged with him," he explains.
But the 'Rich Forever' rapper vehemently denied that he scrapped the trek due to threats from the Gangster Disciples, who were looking for compensation after he name-dropped their imprisoned leader, Larry Hoover, on the 2010 song 'B.M.F. (Blowin' Money Fast).'
"I'm a real boss and this is something that everybody needs to understand… gangstas move in silence," Ross says. "Any dude can stand in a crowd with 30 or 40 dudes and everybody real, everybody trill, everybody 'bout that life, everybody gangsta. But when the choppers come out, everybody fold.
"But more importantly, anybody that understands anything about the GD's, it's about Growth and Development. It's all about support."
Ross also reiterated that under no circumstances would he give a large payout to a gang. "So if you screamin', 'Cut a check, we need a check.' Ain't no checks gettin' cut. Ain't never no checks gettin' cut. I don't play those games," he sneered. "I consider that extortion, we don't play like that."
In the end, Rozay said he's not going to let gang threats hold him back. "Rich is gangsta. Wealth is gangsta. Power is gangsta," Ross states. R-Ruh!
