Gang threats rumored in Rick Ross tour cancellation

TROUBLE?: Rick Ross

RAP MOGUL Rick Ross has cancelled the rest of his current MMG tour amid speculation that he has been receiving death threats from a gang.

The Head of the Maybach Music Group, who shut down two shows in North Carolina last week, scrapped the rest of the dates shortly after alleged members of street gang ‘The Gangster Disciples’ posted videos online threatening the star.

The group are believed to be upset with the self-proclaimed "Boss" for mentioning their leader "Larry Hoover" in his 2010 hit single B.M.F. (Blowin' Money Fast).

In the song he he rapped: "I think I'm Big Meech, Larry Hoover. Whipping work, hallelujah! [sic]"

According to AllHipHop, the platinum artist's publicist has ignored reports that the gang had anything to do with the cancellations, instead blaming "apparent lack of organization and communication on the part of the tour promoter.”

"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," Rick Ross told Friday.

"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."
