Rick Ross Cancels Shows In Charlotte, Greensboro On Heels Of Death Threats; Freeway Rick Weighs In

(AllHipHop News) Miami rap star Rick Ross canceled two concerts in North Carolina this weekend, after police stated security would be beefed up over gang threats against the rapper.

Rick Ross canceled concerts in Greensboro and Charlotte, although the exact reason has not been confirmed.

According to the Charlotte Observer, local police were on high alert, over numerous threats against Rick Ross in recent weeks, by various factions of The Gangster Disciples.

The GD’s are upset over the fact that Rick Ross allegedly reneged on some sort of agreement and over the usage of the gang’s six-point star on the cover of his mixtape “The Black Bar Mitzvah.”

Freeway Ricky Ross, who is currently in court with Rick Ross, over claims that his image was hijacked by the rapper for commercial usage.

“It’s not just disrespectful to have crossed a line. But when you stay crossed. A fan brought to my attention you look at the guys twitter TONIGHT @rickyrozay the issue they have is front and center with their image being used,” Freeway Rick Ross told AllHipHop.com. “It’s just like my name RICK ROSS and the blatant disrespect and profiteering despite a clear request to stop. It’s disrespectful!”

The concerts in North Carolina were also supposed to feature Maybach Music Group artists Meek Mill, Wale and others.

“I don’t think any of these companies Warner or UMG should’ve gone to him to get permission to use my name and image, they should’ve come to me and still should,” Freeway Rick Ross told AllHipHop.com. “Even this situation with The GD’s, he did the same thing with these guys. They told you their issue address it. People don’t deal with things the same way, especially street people. This guy just doesn’t have the right people around him to explain the streets, and then say that when you violate someone just address it as a man. You need to say that it wasn’t intentional or nothing like that. Its Ok to apologize and make things right with a real agreement out of respect.

Live Nation Entertainment, which promoted the concerts, said refunds would be available beginning tomorrow (December 7).
