Default Rick Ross cancels shows after gang threats

what a bunch of losers lol


-----------------------------------------------------------------------

NEW YORK - Rick Ross has canceled two shows in North Carolina after a gang named Gangster Disciples published a series of YouTube videos threatening the Southern rapper.

Ross, a solo artist, is the founder of Maybach Music Group, a record label that release albums through Warner Bros Records. He was set to perform with fellow Maybach artists Wale, Meek Mill and Machine Gun Kelly in Greensboro on Friday and Charlotte on Saturday. A quick look at the Ticketmaster page evinces that Live Nation has canceled the shows, but a Live Nation spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Various sects of the Gangster Disciples (GDs), a gang founded on the South Side of Chicago, appear in videos on YouTube threatening Ross and asking him for money. A nearly 10-minute video published recently featuring members of the North Carolina crew is titled "Rick Ross In Trouble with the GD's North Carolina."

They claim to have already given Ross a pass "for using our honorable chairman's name in a disorderly fashion - a dishonest fashion." That courtesy is over, and they know where Ross will be, mentioning Greensboro and Charlotte. They then say when they catch him in his Maybach his "time is through" and that Ross should know his penalty.

Some of the conflict seems to arise out of a reference to Gangster Disciples' leader Larry Hoover in Ross' song "B.M.F (Blowin Money Fast)" - hence the comment about "our honorable chairman."

Others have said it is not about Hoover and the GDs also appear to be upset that Ross has been acting like more of a gangster than he really is. Affiliated groups, such as ones in Florida and Georgia, have made their displeasure known on YouTube and demanded money.

"We need that cash now, we need that cash - now. We need that cash right now," one man says in a video from a Florida sect.

"We coming to you as a man William, he adds. "As a man, you supposed to honor your obligations. Therefore you going to do so. Until you do, you going to deal with the mob."

While both those shows have been canceled, a Sunday show in Nashville, Tenn. remains on schedule.
