Rick Ross Cancels L.A. Show With Busta Rhymes
Health comes first, just ask Rick Ross.
The Teflon Don has cancelled yet another show following his seizures last week, this time a performance that was scheduled to take place October 23 in Los Angeles, California. Dubbed the "Tru 2 Music" concert, alongside Busta Rhymes and Eric Bellinger, the show will now take place January 13, 2012. The re-scheduled concert date will include additional performances by Y.G., Jayo Felony, Pure and a number of others.
Tru Royalty Entertainment, the promoters behind the event alongside Clear Channel, decided to postpone the affair the give Ross more time to recuperate. “We truly want Rick Ross to be at 110% so that he is able to offer fans a once in a life time show," they said via a statement. "His healthy recovery is our main concern and we have worked with management to insure the new date gives Rick Ross enough time to recoup.”
Ross had a recent health scare when while on a flight to Memphis, Tennessee, he suffered a seizure that forced the plane to turn back around. Rozay decided to try his luck again, boarding the flight one more time, which is when he had another seizure, causing the plane to detour and make an emergency stop in Alabama. Since then, a photo of the bawse in front of a Wing Stop restaurant in Memphis surfaced on the net, and reports confirmed he was aboard a tour bus with friend DJ Khaled en route to Atlanta for a show that was set to take place last Friday. That show was also cancelled.
"Tru 2 Music" is the fourth show Ross has scrapped since Ross suffered the seizures. Aside from the show in Atlanta, he was booked for a concert in Memphis last Friday and another gig in North Carolina the following day, Saturday, both which were cancelled.
Next week, Ross is slated to perform in Philadelphia as a part of radio station Power 99′s “Powerhouse” celebration. It is yet to be known if he will make that appearance. Stay tuned to XXL for updates on Ross' performance schedule. —Gina Montana
