Rick Ross had to cancel his Detroit concert on Saturday after an angry mob blocked his entrance to the venue and reportedly made threats against his life.
Rapper Rick Ross had been due to perform for fans at the Summer Jamz gig in the Chene Park Amphitheater, but upon arrival, he was faced with a “human blockade” of around 150 people.
The demonstration was reportedly sparked by local rapper Trick Trick’s song No Fly Zone, which encourages fans not to support stars who fail to collaborate with artists from Detroit, but the activists took the fight one step further by allegedly hurling abuse and threats at Rick Ross and his associates, prompting them to ax the show.
A statement released by venue representative Shahida Mausi reads: “Reports from our venue operations and security teams indicate 100-150 individuals orchestrated a human blockade around the service entrance to the venue, preventing Mr. Ross and his entourage from entering the premises. A decision was made from Mr. Ross’ team (that) the conditions were becoming threatening and posed a security risk.”
However, Rick Ross wrote on Twitter: “Luv #Detroit I wuz ready to killm (kill them, put on a great performance) 2nite,heard it wuz a peace protest wit picket signs and locked gates haa (sic)”.
