Rapper Rick Ross cancels Charlotte concert after gang threats
WCNC-TV


Posted: Thursday, Dec. 06, 2012
One of the most popular Hip Hop artists in the country has canceled concert stops in Charlotte and Greensboro for this weekend. The cancellation comes on the heels of de@th threats but no specific reason was given for the cancellations.
A Maybach Music Group concert tour headlining Rick Ross was scheduled to appear Friday in Greensboro and Saturday at the Bojangles Coliseum in Charlotte. Rappers Wale and Meek Mill were scheduled to appear as well.
The threats came from the Gangster Disciples, who have a beef with Ross. The North Carolina Chapter recently put out a YouTube video warning him to stay out of Charlotte.
Tickets can be refunded starting Friday, Live Nation Entertainment group said in a statement.
In the YouTube rap video, the Disciples are upset because Ross mentions the name of the founder of the street gang and uses the Star of David to promote himself. That symbol is used by the gang.
“I think fans should be concerned. I think the parents should be concerned because you never know,” said Paul Scott on Wednesday. Scott is a minister from Durham who is also a Hip Hop journalist.
Scott has been highly critical of the violence sparked by rap artists.
“Hip Hop does not represent the real street. The commercial Hip Hop that Rick Ross promotes represents Wall Street and Wall Street cares nothing about the loss of human life if they can make a dollar.”
Deon Cole is a friend of Ross and is also the a$sistant programming director for Power 98 Radio in Charlotte. He didn’t believe that fans had anything to worry about.
Cole believes that one day Ross and the Disciples will work out their problems.
Scott says he wouldn’t take the chance and if his kids asked to go he would say no.
“No one took the Tupac-Notorious BIG beef seriously until they were both dead,” he said, referring to rappers Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls, both slain in 1996.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police released a statement Wednesday before the cancellation, saying officers would remain vigilant to ensure safety.

C'mon i'm not a fan of Rick Ross at all but I'm just saying he's one of the most popular rap artist right now so can't nobody say he is cancelling shows because of low ticket sales. That's all I was saying. CHILL HOMEY

The problem is, too many people are online threatening Rick Ross so if he does get hurt or injured there are obvious suspects. They need to about 6 months like Cali waited on Biggie. I propose that they wait till June 23rd, 2013 6 AM and 42 seconds to get him!!!!!

if you ni##as read, the most important part is this:

The cancellation comes on the heels of de@th threats but no specific reason was given for the cancellations.

...anything else is speculation.

Guess you didn't realize the de@th threats are coming from the GD's and there making de@th threats towards Rick Ross.

The threats came from the Gangster Disciples, who have a beef with Ross. The North Carolina Chapter recently put out a YouTube video warning him to stay out of Charlotte.
I guess we fail to read that

Ross needs to give the royalty checks to The GD's and focus on getting them off the streets.
