Rick Ross was scheduled to perform at 107.5′s Summer Jamz #17 in Detroit Saturday night, but fans were left disappointed when they were told the rapper was going to be a no-show. The reason? He was “scared for his life.”
According to rumors, Ross dipped after finding out that 100 “fans” were waiting for him at the Chene Park venue. They say Ross didn’t even step foot on stage before he and his crew packed their shit and got the hell up outta Detroit. As a result, Ross has been banned (again?) from ever stepping foot in the Motor City.
This is the second time Rozay has had problems in Detroit. His empty tour bus was robbed of thousands of dollars in jewelry, clothes and other personal items in 2012. While many suspected local rapper Trick Trick was behind the burglary, Trick denied his involvement. “I wasn’t gona entertain this weak sh*t but, if I wanted to get officer ricky, I’d get em! Not tear up a tour bus! That’s B*TCH sh*t! GSM,” he tweeted July 2012.
Coincidentally, Trick posted the cover art for his mixtape, No Fly Zone, shortly after Ross reportedly left Detroit. For those short on memory, he just dropped a “No Fly Zone” video back in May so we’ll assume Trick’s taken over handling all tourist accommodations and reservations for rappers looking to visit the D. He said in the song “I’m just a phone call away, come here without permission, I don’t wanna hear shit you got to say.” Guess Rawse didn’t know Trick meant business.
Update: Rick Ross responds to the matter via his Twitter, choosing to make light of it all. “Luv #Detroit I wuz ready to killm 2nite,” Officer Ross writes, “heard it wuz a peace protest wit picket signs and locked gates.”
Update: In a newly released, lengthy video, Trick Trick speaks on regarding the whole situation. Watch the video here.
