Rick Ross States That The Tour Wasn’t Cancelled Due To Death Threats
Rick Ross explains how the tour wasn’t cancelled due to death threats and how he tried to choke Jeezy at BET Awards. Rick Ross broke his silence and stated that the threats where not from local gangs.
In a recent interview with 99 Jamz, Rick Ross spoke up about he rumors about his tour being cancelled due to local gang threats. He said that his tour promoter, Shawn Gee, wasn’t communicating with him about the shows. Rick Ross then decided to pull the plug on the second leg of the M.M.G. tour to “take away” the power.
“I canceled the rest of the tour due to the promoter was really not handling his business. He canceled a date of mine. I was going to Tuscon, Arizona and I was really a few hours outside of the market when I heard. I believe it was Tuscon, this was a week and a half ago,” he said. “And I let the dude know how we move and just to communicate a little better. So I woke up and realized that two more dates had been canceled. I felt like that was some power I needed to take away from homie, so I canceled the rest of the dates.”
He got some life advice from Larry Hoover, stating that the gangsters who are comfortable around others but fold when the situations escalate. “It was never due to any threats,” he said. “I’m a certified man. I’m a boss. Everybody need to understand, gangsters move in silence. In situations like that, I remember something that an old school Dade County gangster told me a long time ago: any dude can stand in the crowd with 30, 40 dudes. Everybody real, trill, everybody bout that life, everybody gangster. But when them choppers come out, everybody fold.”
Rick Ross also had beef with Young Jeezy at the 2012 BET Awards. Rick Ross stated that he tried to choke the rapper, but then he established that it was “nothing personal.” He just failed to handle the situation based on past experience.
“This is nothing personal to me. At the BET Awards, it basically boiled down to me running across Young Jeezy, he had five security guards in front of him, five policeman behind him. When we crossed paths, I said what’s up. As soon as he said what’s up, I tried to choke him. His security guards held me up, whoever the big black dude is with the bumps on his face, he should give that dude something special for Christmas. He really should. It wasn’t a big deal to me. I went and performed, it wasn’t nothing personal.”
“It’s not personal, but if I see Young Jeezy again, will I try to choke him?” he continued. “I don’t know. That’s an option. If I seen 50 Cent, is it personal? Not at all. But it’s an option. It’s personal because there were certain lines that were already crossed.”Photo credit: allhiphop.com
