After announcing the cancelation of one show due to death threats, Rick Ross has canceled his Maybach Music Tour altogether. But the Bawse said the show had bigger problems than safety concerns.

The first cancelation hit the tour when the Maybach Music Group head let fans know that he would not make the December 7 show via Twitter.

“North Carolina I wuz so excited to perform tomorro wit #MMG Promoters cancelled show but I’ll be Back ASAP. #luv” 

The tour, which included Ross’ Maybach Music Group, was scheduled to appear at the Bojangles Coliseum in Greensboro, NC. But reports of death threats from members of the area’s Gangster Disciples gang raised security concerns. 

But Ross didn’t only put the breaks on one show. He recently shut down the entire tour altogether. Reps for Rick Ross told AllHiphop the shut-down was not due to death threats but because of the “apparent lack of organization and communication on the part of the tour promoter.”  

“I want to apologize to all of my fans who I missed performing for due to the cancellations and want to let them know that I will get back to their cities,” Rick Ross said. “I enjoyed my experience with my little bros Wale and Meek Mill and I’m ready to get back in the studio to make good music.”

Rick Ross’ album God Forgives, I Don’t was recently nominated for a Grammy award for Best Rap Album.
