(AllHipHop News)  The saga surrounding Rick Ross’ lyrics on “U.O.E.N.O.” continues today (April 9) as sources are reporting that a Rick Ross concert was cancelled in Ottawa, Canada due to protests from college students  at the University of Ottawa.

While Ross is still is under contract with Reebok, the Miami, Florida based rapper has been the subject of protests across the United States at Reebok stores and now his concerts.

Despite the fact that Ross has publicly denounced the lyrics in interview and in song, his Tuesday night show in Ottawa at the Ernst & Young Centre was cancelled.

According to O.Canada.com, due to “security concerns” from the show’s promoter, Urban Jamz Ent., the show will no longer take place.

“Put molly all in the champagne / you don’t even know it /Took her home and I enjoyed that / she aint even know it,” Ross famously said in the song.

Part of the reason the show was cancelled had to do with a Student Federation at the University of Ottawa, who pulled out of the annual festival, dropping support to bring Ross to the show.

“He wasn’t an artist the SFUO could support,” said Ethan Plato, the federation’s president.

Ross was rumored to be paid between $100,000 and $250,000 for the show.
