Rick Ross was expected to headline HOT 107.5?s Summer Jamz Concert Saturday night in Detroit but those plans were just short reportedly due to a mob of over 100 people blocking his access into the venue.
Apparently, the issue between Ross and Detroit may be from a song released by Motown native Trick Trick, who released a song called “No Fly Zone,” featuring Royce Da 5’9.” The single’s main message calls for a ban of any artist who doesn’t collaborate with artists from Detroit.
It seems that some took that message to heart as Ross did not perform. HOT 107.5’s program director, Jay Hicks, later came out and explained Ross’ absence to the crowd.
“I’m going to be real with y’all; I’m going to be real as fuck. We had Rick Ross right outside here tonight,” Hicks said. “At about 11 o’clock, when he was pulling up to come into Chene Park, he was met by 100 individuals outside. We have tried to pull every resource together and asked him to come back. He is in fear of his life.”
The program director went on to say that Ross may never return to Detroit due to the actions against him and restated that Ross was in fear foe his life.
“And he may never come back to Detroit, and that’s no bullshit,” Hicks said. “This is some real shit. He was in fear of his life and he is not performing here tonight.”
