On Friday afternoon, Rick Ross announced he was canceling the remainder of his current Maybach Music Group tour. The official reason, according to his reps, is "apparent lack of organization and communication on the part of the tour promoter." The unofficial reason is a lot scarier than poor logistics.
The MMG tour launched November 2, was scheduled through December 2, and was intended to be extended through December 16. And its cancellation came, Billboard points out, "a day after Ross canceled two shows in North Carolina ... [reportedly] due to threats from the Gangster Disciples street gang." You can see the threats online — because this is 2012, and even gangsters beef on YouTube — and they're not pleasant.
