In a recent interview Rick Ross responded to rumors that the reason he cancelled his tour was due to death threats by a group called Gangster Disciples. Ross says the real reason why he cancelled the tour was because the promoter, Shawn Gee, canceled three of his shows without notifying him, as a result, the MC went ahead and cancelled the rest of the dates on his own. “i just felt like that was some power that I need to take away from homey, so I canceled the rest of the dates that I had arranged with him.”
Gangster Disciples released a youtube video where they demanded money from Ross for name dropping their chairman Larry Hoover on the chorus of his 2010 single “B.M.F. (Blowin’ Money Fast).”
The group is also upset that Ross used their six-pointed star gang symbol on the cover of his mixtape “The Black Bar Mitzvah.
Ross addressed the cancellation rumors and the group’s video by saying, “Once they began to unravel, I shut it down. Never was it due to any threats…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.”
“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 responded. “I consider that extortion, we don’t play like that.”
Currently Chicago Police Department is investigating the threats by the Gangster Disciples against Rick Ross.
