Rick Ross Skips Detroit Summer Jam After Reportedly Being Approached By “100 Individuals” Upon Entry

Rick Ross

Rick Ross’ scheduled Detroit Summer Jam appearance was reportedly thwarted by a large group of people who accosted his crew outside the venue, according to reports. Rozay was schedule to headline Hot 107.5′s annual concert, last night (June 21), at Chene Park. But when he arrived he was approached by sizeable group of people who opposed his presence at the event. According to reports, the Bawse then left, not to return, reportedly in fear for his safety. Hot’s program director, Jay Hicks reportedly broke the news to the crowd, telling the assembly, “I’m going to be real with y’all; I’m going to be real as f-ck. We had Rick Ross right outside here tonight,” Hicks said. “At about 11 o’clock, when he was pulling up to come into Chene Park, he was met by 100 individuals outside. We have tried to pull every resource together and asked him to come back. He is in fear of his life.”

He added, “And he may never come back to Detroit, and that’s no bullsh-t. This is some real sh-t. He was in fear of his life and he is not performing here tonight.”

Speculation about last night’s anti-Ross movement in Detroit has people pointing to the recent release by Motown vet Trick Trick whose latest track “No Fly Zone” featuring Royce Da 5’9″ calls for all out-of-towners to get a pass or get dealt with. People also pointed fingers at Trick back in 2012 when the MMG boss’ tour bus was robbed during a show in the D. However, he denied green-lighting the theft.

Early this morning, Ross took to Twitter to reference his absence at the show typing, “Luv #Detroit I wuz ready to killm 2nite,heard it wuz a peace protest wit picket signs and locked gates haa.” Despite the no-show, the show still went on with A$AP Ferg, Rico Love, Sevyn Streeter, B.o.B, Scarface and others taking the stage.
