Rick Ross Cancels Australian Supafest Dates
Australia’s Supafest music festival will have to be super without Rick Ross.
The Bawse was scheduled to headline Supafest on April 14th in Brisbane, April 15th in Sydney, April 21st in Melbourne and April 22nd in Perth, but won’t be making any of the dates due to unfulfilled contractual obligations, according to MTV.
“Ross was looking forward to touching the people of Australia,” a a rep from Ross’ camp confirmed with MTV. “This event is one of biggest urban festivals in Australia and he is very disappointed that he will not be performing. It is unfortunate that the payment arrangements did not meet contractual deadlines.”
The news comes after Rozay no-showed for scheduled performances at the Bayou Music Center in Houston and Easter Fest in Guyana at the Guyana National Stadium, on April 7th and April 9th, respectively.
For the latter scheduled appearance, INews Guyana reported that “doctors for the American artist [being Ross] say he had a seizure and cannot fly.
XXL’s calls and emails to Rozay’s camp about the report haven’t been immediately returned.
However, promoters for the Hits and Jams Concert, that Ross was supposed to perform at in Guyana, say they’re working with the Bawse to negotiate a new date for the show, while announcing a full refund to ticket holders in the process.
Of course, Ross set the rap game on fire earlier this year with the release of his acclaimed mixtape Rich Forever, which features the likes of Nas, Drake, Styles P, 2 Chainz and Diddy. He’s also building his way toward the release of his fifth studio album, God Forgives, I Don’t, due later this year.—Jakinder Singh
