Rick Ross Addresses Cancelled Detroit Show

blame it on Shake June 24, 2014

Rick Ross was supposed to headline Hot 107.5’s Summer Jamz concert this past Saturday night in Detroit, but ended up canceling last minute. Word on the internet (I know, I know) is that it was Trick Trick and a bunch of “goons” who were denying him access.

Sitting down with Detroit’s 99 Jamz, Ross denies seeing anyone personally and blamed the cancelled show on a locked gate. Proclaiming “you don’t lock the lions out, you lock the lions in.” Or something.

After the situation was over and Ross was sitting comfortably in a nearby casino, Power’s program director Jay Hicks broke the news to the sold-out crowd. A video was posted on the channel’s Facebook page but has since been taken down, but in the clip Jay is seen saying

It took me nine months to put this show together. I do this for y’all; I was at work negotiating contracts, putting (expletive) together.

I’m going to be real with y’all; I’m going to be real as (expletive). We had Rick Ross right outside here tonight at about eleven o’clock. As he was pulling in to come into Chene Park, he was met by 100 individuals outside. By 100 individuals outside!

We will try to pull every resource together and ask Ross to come back. He is in fear of his life. I’m just being real; real talk. This is some real (expletive). He was in fear of his life and he is not performing here tonight.

And he may never come back to Detroit, and that’s no (expletive).

And there’s your two sides to the story. Now let’s continue with the Tuesday…

    Who really believes anything this guy says in 2014, forget the fact you like his music or feel sorry for him, because that clouds your judgment, dude is a joke, there are at least 20 videos on youtube of him denying things and most of them have been confirmed bold face lies.

    • AmIDickRidingyet

      I mean, if you can show me 3 links about these lies then you may been on to something. But 20? It must have taken you a long ass time to begin disliking dude. I know the one he was lying about being a CO so thats one video you don’t have to show me.

  • malcyvelli

    This shit just took on a whole pro wrestling vibe when got into the “lock the lions in” spiel. Sounded like the dam Ultimate Warrior.

    • Hood Oracle

      yo I swear I was about to say that

    • MidWestFlyest

      LOL ,watched it 2nd time just for the wrestling impersonation

  • NYCityKid

    There’s some truth the story no need for all of the emotion if there wasn’t no truth to it. But like he said somebody should have spoken up about it already. Let’s see what happens

  • cam

    I think he’s lyin. He now dam well he got ran out of Detroit.

  • Hood Oracle

    he lied about being a co….so how could I believe him now

  • marty mcfly

    The thing about it is this, if you aint close enough to Ross to call him on the phone and address whatever issue you got with him? Then you dont know him like that so you prolly should mind your business. In the streets its plenty of people that dont like each other but that dont mean they gotta go make a problem where there isnt one cause thats NOT gangsta. If Trick Trick had a problem with Ross, its ways to go about handling that but showing up with a bunch of guys (and a whole bunch of police) to disrupt a show does nothing to effect Ross at the end of the day. He just stopped a whole bunch of people from Detroit from seeing Ross perform and honestly they probably are much more fans of Ross then they are of Trick. Its been almost ten years since Ross came out… If you still gotta problem with Ross and you aint address it in damn near a decade? At this point just let it go. The best thing you can do to Ross if you dont like him is dont buy his music. Anything outside of that is fuckery. There is no point to creating a situation with a nigga who never did shit to you Detroit. FIN

      • marty mcfly

        LOL, thanks for the laughs

    • Mike Scott

      Remove Rozay’s testes from your mouth? The dude is a bald headed liar. This has been confirmed on MANY occasions. Why do you feel the need to write a paragraph to defend a liar? FAIL.

      • marty mcfly

        My comments are more about Trick Trick then it is about Ross and there are overall points made that in general speak on larger issues but if you mad its cool.

      • MusicHead

        The comment isn’t about if he’s a liar or not tho..y’all hate for Ross is so strong, it’s blinding smh.

  • dwightschrute

    he was locked out? how bout you call the venue and tell them to unlock the gate…this fraud is such an ass clown

    • marty mcfly

      The police prolly shut it down once they saw niggas gathering around outside. Niggas was probably talking loud so the damn cops could hear what was going on so they shut it down before Ross even got there. Here’s what Trick shoulda did. First get in contact with somebody who could contact Ross (most likely the promoter or somebody at the station), then ask for a few minutes of Ross time. Then somebody will pull Tricks card and the let Ross know he’s official. At that point Trick could’ve took a couple people with him to the venue, as to not make a bunch of noise where the cops feel they gotta shut it down. Either before the show or after the show somebody coulda pulled Trick to the side in order to get a few words with Ross. At that point Trick coulda said whatever he had to say. A idiot would say hey this is a no fly zone blah blah blah… A smart person would say hey Detroit is really struggling right now so if there’s anything that could be done to give the streets some hope or provide some opportunity then that would be appreciated and when you come back to Detroit, anything you need just check in and let me know. Even if it was as simple as seeing if anything can be done to look out for Black Milk as a producer and see if any music from Detroit could be used by Ross or anybody from MMG, thats at least something that would be beneficial for Detroit. Trick went about it the wrong way as if he wants to extort rappers if they dont bow to his feet in Detroit and if they dont he’s gonna make a whole bunch of noise outside so the cops shut it down.

      • disqus_pyrGXaSTDx

        coulda shoulda woulda.. you weren’t there just as much as the next commenter but ross seems the type of guy to ignore people trying to reach out unless khaled or someone co-signs it.. or if he does bump into someone.. makes false promises then doesn’t follow up on them. Trick Trick isnt sat around thinking how would suburban ass marty mcfly handle this.

        • marty mcfly

          Ok, well thats your opinion but the notion that Ross owes Trick anything or that its a must that people are somehow supposed to ask his permission to come to Detroit is a reach and if anything were to be accomplished on Tricks end, its a way to go about handling things. If you supposed to be the street king or some shit in your area? Then your own personal issues should not take priority over whats best for the city where you from. Thats if the people there look at you as if your their ambassador.

          • Totally agree. Dudes act like they’re an actual state official or have some real power. Freaking savage mentality yo. No shots I just hate bullies lol

        • marty mcfly

          Furthermore a “No Fly Zone” exists somewhere in every state in america. Those that wanna run around getting money and not have to worry about problems know how to pick up the bat phone and use the force field when they in other cities but if certain people choose not to use it then oh well.

      • dwightschrute

        rick ross is the police, how this dude has fans is beyond me

        • marty mcfly

          Thats because most people really dont care about Ross personal life or his past or whatever. They just want to hear some good music sometimes but they really dont care about shit else when it comes to Ross. The people still mad at him, wanna be all mad over some shit that happened like 20 years ago when Ross worked as a C.O? I mean I get it but most people just dont care that much, they just want the music and thats it.

          • dwightschrute

            why does he need to lie about it? he has made up a fake persona, if he was truthful i wouldn’t give a fuck

  • Lego Dre

    Translation : “Lets forget this ever happen, I need to save face for my next album.” He might call his next album Mastermind 2 (*hint,hint*), but anyway S/O to my nigga Dj E-Feezy (dude right next to Ross in the interview), anytime E Feezy got that slight smirk on his face like he always do when niggas be fronting , he know dude making up bullshit he just tryna hold in his laugh. And Trick Trick should had addressed Ross Face to Face, his people, DETROIT people, PAID money to see Ross perform at the end of the day.

  • James Stanford

    lmao foh here williams the 2nd. nikkas need to run this clown outta of hip hop. all he do is lie.. and its always some dumb ass trynna defend him and believe he moved bricks. the closest thing he ever got to powder was when it was on his donut. RS !

    • UnitedStatesCitizen

      And make room for all the Real Gs in rap right lmao.

  • NYBX

    Ross sound real pet haha

  • Isaiah Hunter

    if you paid for an artist to perform, and some one pad locked the gate would you not cut the chain? i got some bolt cutters in the car for real this dont add up, is that the only way into the arena? niggas not bout to take my bread and not show fuck that
