Police launch investigation into Rick Ross gang threat

WENN

Police in Chicago have launched an investigation into video messages posted online by a local gang that threatened rapper Rick Ross, according to TMZ.

Self-proclaimed members of a Chicago-based group known as the Gangster Disciples recently demanded in a series of YouTube videos that Ross pay them. Ross is no stranger to the Gangster Disciples, referring to founder Larry Hoover in the song "B.M.F (Blowin' Money Fast)." Hoover is serving six life sentences at a prison in Colorado for drug conspiracy and extortion convictions.

Bing: Rick Ross cancels tour

Ross canceled the rest of his U.S. tour two days ago, which followed an earlier cancellation of two North Carolina shows that were scrapped for safety reasons.

Rumors have suggested that the decision to cancel the tour was linked to the gang threat. Ross blamed promoters for canceling the shows and vowed to return to North Carolina as soon as possible. After pulling the rest of his Maybach Music Tour dates, he insisted it was the result of an "apparent lack of organization and communication" by event promoters.

Well said I have a 16 year old that  listen to this b.s. in today's age of rap. Don't get me wrong i am a hip-hop fan but when rappers start talking bout gangs, drugs,etc and nothing about the struggle it bothers me. I come from the Pac era...while he did disclosed aspects of life that's negative he also had a positive message behind it. Today's rappers very rarely disclose  anything positive message for the youth of this generation,,,,,
