Rick Ross Says Detroit Venue Was Padlocked, Promoter Says He Feared For His Safety
The hot topic this past weekend was wether or not Rick Ross was placed on Detroit’s No Fly Zone, and barred from performing in the D for not paying homage to local acts, under duress from over 100 goons. Rozay spoke on the situation with Felisha Monet on 99 Jamz in Miami and say that when he got to the venue, he only left because it had been padlocked.
Allegedly, Trick Trick put the word out to the goons to see Ross at HOT 107.5 FM’s Summer Jamz17. A statement from the promoter confirms that a large group of men on the orders of a “local rapper” were waiting outside the Chene Park Amphitheater’s to confront the Miami rapper. “Fearing for his safety Rick Ross and his management team decided it was best to leave the area and cancel his performance,” reads part of the statement.
However, according to Ross, that’s not exactly what happened.
“Just to make it clear, I never even made it to the venue,” Ross told Monet. “Me and whoever this gentleman is, we never crossed paths. He never spoke with Rozay. And I expect him to clarify that.”
Ross then detailed his point of view, saying that while heading to the venue, his team wasn’t aware that there was any beef.
He said, “The caravan on the way to the venue, they get there [and] someone has locked the gates to the venue. Padlocked it, however they did it, the gate was locked. It was gentleman supposed to be here, this I didn’t see myself. It was supposed to be gentleman who were talking with the police and it was very peaceful, for my team [that made it there before me]. They didn’t even know it was a problem. That’s the promoter’s job, ya know. The promoter himself said lets get it fixed. We said let’s go to the casino. Shout out to Greektown Casino.”
