Did Rick Ross REALLY Cancel the Remainder of His MMG Tour Due to Gang Threats?

Rick Ross’ credibility has been questioned countlessly during his career. Between the images of him as a correctional officer and the issues he’s had for name-dropping reputed gang members Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and Larry Hoover on his track “B.M.F.,” the rapper has had a lot of explaining to do about his real-life ties to crime and drug trafficking.

Last week, the Florida rapper and MMG founder canceled the remaining tour dates of his current Maybach Music Group tour alongside Wale and Meek Mill. People from Ross’ camp have attributed the cancellation to problems with promoters in North Carolina, but the overwhelming evidence of threats towards Ross by members of the Gangster Disciples street gang have proven there might be more to the story than the MMG boss is admitting to.

The tour has been cancelled indefinitely, and in a statement issued to, Ross had the following to say:

I want to apologize to all of my fans who I missed performing for due to the cancellations and want to let them know that I will get back to their cities. I enjoyed my experience with my little bros Wale and Meek Mill and I’m ready to get back in the studio to make good music.

According to videos all over YouTube, it seems as though the GDs have become fed up with Ross and “will not be exploited in any way shape or fashion.” They claim to have given Ross a “pass” for giving out incorrect contact information in exchange for (what seems to be) permission in using their gang’s name on his tracks. They follow up by listing all of the North Carolina show dates and vowing to be not only at the show, but backstage as well. The full video can be seen here.

Nobody from MMG or Ross’ camp have confirmed that the threats are real or being taken into consideration, but sometimes word on the street is enough hearsay, especially when it comes to a group of people with a history like the Gangster Disciples street gang.

Do you guys think he should’ve cancelled his shows?
