Police Investigating Death Threats Made Against Rick Ross

Chicago police are now investigating the threats leveled at Rick Ross by the Gangsters Disciples.

Last week, the world of Hip Hop was shocked to learn that Rick Ross cancelled the remainder of his Maybach Music Group tour over threats of gang violence. Now, in a recent report from TMZ, it appears that police are investigating into the matter.

The Chicago Police Department is beginning to investigate the threats levied at the Carol City rapper by the notorious Chicago-based gang the Gangster Disciples. Prior to the North Carolina leg of Rozay's tour, the GD's posted a video threatening the rapper's life if he were to perform.

According to the video, the GD's are demanding that Ross pay them for likening himself to the gang's founder, Larry Hoover, in his song "B.M.F. (Blowin' Money Fast)." They are also claiming that he ripped off their six-pointed star gang symbol on the cover of his mixtape The Black Bar Mitzvah.

As of now, the police are investigating into the video and the parties who made the threats in it. DX will keep you updated as more information comes to light.

Hover" Wendy Hoover wife said" ok but don't promote drugs or violence because Larry wants to change the condition of our city" Ross said ok but wen the song came out he was talking about selling drugs .... So l.j. (Larry jr) told him he gave them false info so change the song .. Ross said he couldn't cause def jam had already pressed it up .. Ok so l.j.

    It's a shame they can't pressure the government to let Larry Hoover out of Colorado. If they really had some power, Larry and all there members would be free.

    All he knows is Selassie and swears that's all of "black" history. There are other people besides, Dr. King, Malcolm X, and Booker T. Washington. You just reflect on this fraction and think it's all of our history b/c folks like him, commercialize it and then try to throw it back in our faces, as if that's the only history of Africans & their descendents. Notice, how I got his attention. If your so called black friends aren't schooling you to the truth, then they aren't really "black" homey.

    • King O

      Get outta here with that. I can break down the whole real history of Izrael & you'll be wondering what hit you in the mind. Talk about black nigs....Like we aren't educated scholars. Don't get it twisted. You got his-stories and we got our actually stories, of what really happened and then you talk about, picking up a book. There's so much African knowledge out there, you would say something ignorant like that. 'WE' are world history. Pick up a book. Getthephuxxouttaherewithdatbullshyte....straight up.

    Because of his background, Ross is really affiliated with law enforcement which explains why this would happen. Ross claims that the tour was cancelled for other reasons but it's starting to look Ross is scared and now he got po-po, or even hiring private PI's, to work for him. Soft like a baby's ass. You know, if Ross didn't pretend to be something he is not and strictly stuck to smooth rimes about luxury, he would be the Barry White of rap. But he feared that he wouldn't sell records this way, so he because a fraudulent gangster, knowing the ignorant massed, who don't know real Hip Hop, would still buy his music. Anybody that bought any of Ross's music got shammed, making Ross the pretender rich. And now, he cancels the tour on you, issuing a fake apology. Street King Immortal cannot get here any sooner. Fresh for 2013....u succckkkaaazzz!

    yeah officer this is gonna smooth things over with the GD's bawse is a smart man lol

  • Decatur ATL BOI

    Ross will never perform in Chicago. That city is a lifeless place where uneducated boys (not men) will shoot and kill anyone because they lack the skill set to do anything else in life. Like Detroit. Ross would be better served if he played cities where he can perform without the threat of ignorance. Maybe South Dakota.

    • yeah

      you making foolish statements about something you know nothing about...must be a William Roberts fan

    • Decatur ATL BOI

      Better believe that they are not the one's making ignorant death threats. Smart people never say a word, you just end up dead.

    • White people are real gangsters

      They have racist organizations in Chicago, that none of those so called "uneducated boys" ever shoot nor kill. The Outfit still runs Chicago.

From our Chiefs all the way down to the soldiers we salute Mr. Roberts for his entrepreneurship and dedication to upward mobility from the slums that have oppressed members of these mobs since the we were formed in the 1950's. With all due respect to Mr. Hoover, we respectfully disagree with the Folks in their charges against Mr. Roberts. The purpose of him using MR. Hoover's name was to empower our youth and reignite the fervor for the underlying concepts of GDism, Growth and Development. We support Mr. Roberts and applaud him on his mission to keep the legacy of people like Minister Rico, Larry Hoover, and Jeff Fort alive==as their concepts are about self-empowerment and unity--not banging and destruction.

    You feed the wolves or the wolves will feed on you. You can't keep referencing people you don't know, things you never did and a lifestyle you never lived and expect nothing negative to come out of it. Rick Ross has been lying for a long time and people will be pissed if they really are about it, about it. Most of 50's enemies (those close to him before he was famous) like Bang Em Smurf will spew all kinda of shit about 50, but never do they question his authenticity or the bullsh1t he went through on those streets. This guy is a fraud, and he deserves to face the music. As does Lil Wayne and anyone else throwing up gangs and speaking out their league.

    Man......Aiight, If I was Ross.....I woulda payed these niggaz off. It's starting to come to ahead that this nigga could get killed over all this Lying shit......I don't get into anyones personal life & I'm from Miami Fl & I know what it is out here......If that nigga Ross was smart he should break bread with all these niggaz he shouts out on record & interviews.......Whats worse is that homie comin' up with an excuse....Lets be real my dude...You canceled your tour cuz you got SCARED of being dealt with.....These niggaz got you losing money......Plus you still think you're untouchable...Dawg Pac got Killed, Biggie got killed IDGAF who you are.....If niggaz want you killed, they'll find you......All this bragging, showboating & tough guy shit won't mean SHIT when a nigga catches you slippin' on the block & handles you homie......Miami nigga to another Miami nigga.....If you're smart.....Pay these niggaz off....You claim you a boss & you got all this bread well these nigga making you LOSE bread so before you get capped you better just pay what you owe......If not then thats one less rapper to worry about (I'm a fan of the music so I'm not wishing death on dude but it is what it is)......It aint worth ya life.

Half my family Folks aint but two Lords in our family we know about Folks very well and how they get down. Intimidation is they game nigga you fall into that it's a wrap.

That nigga Ross nem got plenty choppers dont make no mistake and trust them MMG niggas rich and aint no pushover for no nigga, no matter what kinda job he had before he got on nigga! That nigga Ross got some killas, and you can start with @305Iceberg nem them boys got goons down here so you can rule out any mf coming to Miami (which is where I stay now) and fuckin wit Ross. Niggas try to gain points and buss at dog in traffic while he in another city and them niggas deep and strapped they gone hop out and give them boys the business with them hammers and the rest of them niggas gone think twice.

    Corporate money calls the shots in America. Nobody say's anything when all these gang members are working for the record companies and Hollywood Studios in Cali. Because they are getting the poor people in the ghettos to put more money in the pockets of rich people. Other than when these rapper/gang members are coming out with a new album, or a concert is in town, you never hear a word from these companies in your community where the real struggle is. Your parents care about you, not these corporations or this blind justice system that favor the have's vs. the have-nots. Because Rozay called off these tour dates, some corporate people are upset about the money they won't be spending. GD's are fucking with corporate money and they're upset. But the same corporations are cool with Rozay talking that "Blood" garbage because it's making THEM money. I got love for Rozay; however, the truth is the truth.

    Gang culture isn't always about going out and doing crimes or violent acts. Most of the time you grow up together in the same neighborhoods as friends and family. These are the ones sometimes that accept you for who you are as a person when the world rejects you. Gangs should be better at truly caring for their respective communities. Other than that, I don't see anything wrong with being who you are if you aren't harming anyone. Be proud to be whoever it is you are, but do good by as many as possible. Never worry about being accepted because society is never going to honestly accept you unless you're the perfect tool.

    So the GD wanted to extort money from Rick Ross because he likened himself to their leader and because he stole their gang symbol??? So I guess a whole lot of other rappers should get death threats as well, as a number of them also referenced or likened themselves to criminals. Also, I guess all Jews should extort money from the GD, as the GD's gang symbol closely resembles the Star of David. I'm not a fan of Rick Ross btw, nor do I support his music. Just sayin'...

    Hip Hop is the most fucked up pyramid scheme ever!They not only sell you bullshit,then rub in the shit that they bought by selling you the bullshit! But they also sell you the dream that you as well can make it slanging bullshit! Music is the best form of control.the better the headphone the less you hear around you and the less you interact with others. separation is must when creating conflict and making taunting music about material objects and stopping most random daily human interaction is a great way to start shit! just saying

    If Ross snitched then where is the paperwork? Where is the complaint #? I dont care for this dude and I think hes fake as hell, but facts is facts. In the words of my man 50, "where is the signed document"? If somebody can prove Ross and 50 are SNITCH, then prove it! If Ross a snitch so is 50, if Ross is NOT a snitch then neither is 50. This is the same situation here folks you cant have one and not the other. Also people say Ross paid niccas in the Chi to hold him down at his concert. I guess Mike Knox just likes fightin for 50, cuz he cool. 40 Glocc and Spida Loc went at Game, cuz 50 an alright guy. French Montana made the video, cuz 50's such a swell fella. Homo shot 50, cuz Preme was a real nicca. Slick Pulla fought Waka, cuz Jeezys a great person. The cops killed B.I.G cuz, Suges the shit. Shyne shot in the club, cuz Diddys a stand up guy. NOOOOOO....Every rapper in the industry is diggin in they pockets to pay these lil niggas with $$$ or a record deal. They all pay!!! Oh I see Menace went at 40 Glocc, cuz he just reaally supports Game and his music. They all pay, Ross is right to connect with the REAL GD'S IN CHICAGO, why not???

I mean stop being caught up in labeling somebody a snitch because you sound ignorant. I know for a fact most of yall would run fast as hell to the police if y'all was in the same situation.
