Former Dade County corrections officer-turned-rapper Rick Ross cancelled his Maybach Music Group (MMG) Tour after running afoul of several chapters of the Gangster Disciples street gang.
Two factions in particular, the Tennessee and Colorado Gangster Disciples, released YouTube videos that may or may not contain threats against the portly rapper’s life.
At issue is Ross’ continued unauthorized use of the gang’s name and symbol in his rap songs. In addition to the TN and CO chapters of the Gangster Disciples, the Georgia and North Carolina GDs also want a piece of Ross for allegedly not paying monies they say he owes.
In response to all the drama, Ross cancelled the remainder of his MMG tour on Monday. That same day, Ross addressed the cancelled tour with Felisha Monet on 99Jamz in Miami, where Ross owns property.
“If you screaming, ‘cut a check, we need a check’ — ain’t no checks getting cut. I consider that extortion,” said Ross.
Tickets will be refunded at the points of purchase.
