Rick Ross1Rick Ross was run out of Detroit on Saturday, June 21, prior to a scheduled performance at WGPR Hot 107.5’s Summer Jamz 17.

Detroit’s Chene Park, the city-owned amphitheater said Ross was forced to cancel his show there because a “human blockade” of up to 150 people threatened his life and prevented him from stepping foot on the venue’s grounds.
Chene Park claims in the press release the blockade was formed by “a band of individuals led by local rapper,” Trick Trick.

WGPR PD Jay Hicks addressed the crowd, “I’ma be real with y’all, I’ma be real as fuc*,” Jay said. “We had Rick Ross right outside here tonight at about 11:00. 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’s in fear of his life and that n*gga is not performing here tonight. And he may never perform in Detroit again.”
