Fight Erupts At Rick Ross, MMG Concert

Witnesses say belts and jewelry chains were used in a fight, which took place after Rick Ross' performance at New York City's Gramercy Theatre.

According to various reports, a brawl may have broken out during a Self Made 3 promotional concert at New York City’s Gramercy Theatre yesterday (September 17). The concert, which was held in celebration of this week’s release of Maybach Music Group’s latest collaborative album, included appearances from Rick Ross, Stalley and other MMG emcees.

AllHipHop.com reports that shortly after Ross finished performing a handful of records, a fight broke out in the audience at Gramercy Theatre. Those involved in the fight reportedly used both their fists and belts during the brawl.

Additionally, according to XXLMag.com, the melee broke out just as Chicago wordsmith Rockie Fresh was about to take the stage. The Website also posted what’s reportedly cell phone video footage of the altercation. In the video, several individuals are seen scrapping before the fight is broken up by Gramercy Theatre security.

One concert attendee, Nick Simmons, a digital marketing manager at Columbia Records according to his Linkedin profile, Tweeted briefly about the altercation.


Despite last night’s alleged brawl, the Self Made 3 concert was streamed live on various Websites as part of “Self Made 3: The Live Experience.”

News of the alleged fight at the Gramercy Theatre comes only days after a shooting took place at a mixtape release party for SDMG rapper Fat Trel. The shooting also took place in New York City, but this time at famed music venue S.O.B.’s.

    "having seizures on planes from too much drugs and booze" I wasn't aware you were a doctor. Every rapper drinks, but there's a huge difference between drinking at clubs, and during record release parties and nursing yourself with a glass of hard liquor all day and night like Macklemore did.

    "the truth is he drinks everyday and is probably an alcoholic" He's never been to rehab, or splashed his sad story onto the pages of Rolling Stone. Who cares if he drinks? Clearly it's not a problem or else he would do something about it.

    "Ross paid for it and owns MMG, it was his chain" No. The label paid for it, and Gunplay was wearing it at the time. That's his responsibility to get his shit back.

    Ross didn't lose his chain, Gunplay did.

  • Anonymous

    50 was there, so Ross laid him out and finally got back Gunplay's chain. He also stole 50's debit card which he later used to buy 15 more chains just in case Gunplay loses another fight and gets his jewelry taken.

    "I use to hang with Ross, we would dance together & hold each other while looking in the mirror. He use to fuck me good in my butthole, I miss his scruffy beard on my buttcheeks. We would often just jerk each other off & lay together. I miss him, I called him Big Bear & he called me Yogi." How did you break up?

    • Hey

      No, his birth name is Richard, do you guys really believe everything they put out there? & Yes I am very jealous of the younger fem boys, I wish me & Big Bear were sharing them together. I miss his hair.

      Also, if Rick Ross was into little boys, wouldn't you be hurt that he lied to you saying he didn't want people to know he's a homosexual? Doesn't that make you jealous.

      Ever though of being with anyone else instead of delusional thinking about rick ross?

    • Hey

      That is my Big Bears real name, you guys call him Rick, he's Christian name is Richard.

    • Hey

      No, Richard said he didn't want people knowing he was a homosexual, he said it was bad enough that he was into law enforcement & being gay on top of that would destroy the image he was trying to portray. I really miss his nipple & how he would let me titty fuck his hairy chest. He is a real man's lover, no one has ever fingered my butt & made me cum like that, I have precum in my pants now just from thinking about his penis. I have never enjoyed sucks a cock more than his, it's not the biggest little thing but It was mine & I knew how to make him explode. I hear he is into younger boys now, I only hope he can come out to the world soon. Richard, follow Drakes path & show the world your true color.

    Self Made Vol. 3 drops today. It arrives at a curious time for Rick Rosss label, Maybach Music Group. For the first year in recent memory, MMG singles werent a mainstay on the pop charts, or even the hip-hop charts, in 2013. There was no Stay Schemin this summer, no B.M.F. no "Tupac Back." While Meek Mills Levels undoubtedly reached a level of cultural penetration as a concept, the song itself sat comfortably outside of the Hot 100 the entire season. Wale managed to do a little better. His latest album Gifted has sold a comfortable 250,000 copies, but Bad, his only song to go Top 40, relied heavily on signer Tiara Thomass hookand the songs original version pre-dated Wale. But asterisks or not, Wale at least managed to make some noise on the charts. Ross didnt even manage that level of success. His singles Box Chevy and Oil Money Gang didn't even make the R&B/Hip-Hop charts. His latest, No Games, is strong enough to break this spell, although whether it will garner Ross some dearly needed chart traction remains to be seen. Of course, Ross didnt completely vanish from the charts this yearhe just fell into the guest spot, as Rockos U.O.E.N.O. and Jay Zs fukkwitmeyouknowIgotit became hits. In some ways, though, their success almost seemed to mock Rosss quiet summer. The former did more harm than good, knocking him out of his Reebok deal thanks to his infamous lines about dropping molly in champagne. The latter sounded like an MMG single in every way, as if teasing Ross for giving away such a surefire hit. "No New Friends," meanwhile, just emphasized how much bigger of a hitmaker Drake is than anyone else on the song, at this particular point in time. The irony of Wale becoming MMGs frontrunner is that his success was the most unconventional, and remains slightly off-brand for a label built on Rick Rosss mob-boss imagery. But thus far, it seems to fit in pretty well with the style of hip-hop that is doing better on the charts these days, as Wale sits next to J. Cole, Macklemore, and other rap artists whove moved the genres mainstream in a direction away from the streets. There are a couple of factors that have caused this shift. The first is that, with a plethora of free music on DatPiff, and fewer and fewer people buying albums, those who do tend to be able to afford such fetish objects are of a different socioeconomic demographic. The popular taste, at least as represented by sales, ends up skewing along cla## lines. Another, more troubling development, concerns the decreasing significance of black radio as a tastemaker; as Billboard began to incorporate digital downloads and streaming, they lost their ability to qualify listenerships geographically, and along other demographic lines, as they had been able to do in the past. Add to this an imbalance in which streams are counted towards the charts (for example, WorldStarHipHop still has no impact on Billboard charts), and you end up with some bizarre results, like Macklemore or Psy topping the hip-hop charts without any hip-hop radio airplay. But the hip-hop charts arent all college-friendly hip-hop and crossover artists like Macklemore. Clubs are still a driving force in hip-hops sound (as is, increasingly, Vine, a viral appendage of the club, helping singles like The FiNATTiCZ Dont Drop That Thun Thun make Billboard a year after their release). In the last half of 2013, the most popular hip-hop has made a gradual shift from the Atlanta sounds of Mike Will Made It and DJ Spinz towards Californias self-described ratchet sound: the syncopated thump of producers like DJ Mustard. You can hear it from Cali newcomers like Sage the Gemini, whose Red Nose and Gas Pedal singles have had significant chart traction. You can hear it in singles from Atlanta artists like Rich Homie Quan and Young Jeezy (My nikka, "R.I.P."). And you hear it on crossover R&B cuts like B. Smyths Leggo. MMG's primary sonic blueprint, however, remains a mix of aggro bangers in a "B.M.F." style, channelling an aggressive, visceral energy, and the smooth, epic luxurience of tracks like "Aston Martin Music," "Keys to the Crib," oron Self Made Vol. 3"Black Grammys." It's a sound that has seemed like a pretty renewable resource for the past few years, but as Drake has fine-tuned the latter sound to great chart success, and Cali usurped the club sound on the pop charts, MMG's bangers have started to feel a bit off-center. At its peak, MMG was successful because they managed to mainstream a street sound, to take an underground aesthetic and propel into the popular conscience with a chart-ready pop framework. Perhaps they've slipped because the sound they built this empire on has slipped from the forefront of the genre's innovation. This goes hand in hand with PR setbacks for the label, like Ross's troubles with Reebok and the underperformance of Meek Mill's official debut. On the one hand, popular rap has moved further from the streets and clubs; on the street side, it's an increasingly younger artist's game. MMG is stuck in the middle, flanked on one side by YouTube street rappers, and on the other by stars with more bankable, mainstream-friendly sounds. MMG has attempted to meet that challenge with new signees, all of whom are given ample shine on the new compilation. The risk is that increasing the label's roster at a time when its top tier performers are underperforming only serves to dilute the group's impact. On the other hand, if one or two of the performers were to have a breakout performance, it could add needed energy to a flagging franchise. Sadly, the most animated, moving performance comes from Lil Snupe, who was k#lled tragically earlier this year, cutting short a promising career. Stalley and Rockie Fresh are competent, but not personalities on the level of the MMG A-list. And Gunplay remains a critics' favorite, underrated by the wider world, but he's on the other side of 30, and still seemingly in search of that one song that could take him to the next level. Not that there isn't hope for MMG. The label's slippage has been more about perception and context than it has an inconsistency in product. The world rotated once and artists at a creative zenith are pulled back to earth. But for every challenge that has beset the label since Rich Forever made Ross seem like a truly untouchable performerfrom his seizures to Meek's album, from singles not connecting to Lil Snupe's k#lling, from the date-rape lyric controversy to hip-hop's shift away from the MMG sonic blueprintMMG has remained consistent. Self Made 3 isn't as good as Self Made, but, to this writer's ears, it's stronger than Self Made 2. And there are few real challengers to Ross's particular space. Gucci's got an iron grip on the streets, but has marginalized himself from the mainstream pop sphere. Drake's tracks are mainstream-friendly but don't offer the macho bangers Ross's audience feeds on. Young Jeezy is the only one to pose much of a challenge recentlyas he's jumped on board with DJ Mustard and Rich Homie Quan, managing to keep up with a shifting sonic landscape. But it remains to be seen if artists like Doughboyz Cashout and YG can overcome the problems Jeezy has always had in marketing artists on his CTE label. It is a bit disconcerting for MMG, no doubt, that they've been unable to impact the charts this year. But perception of the labels demise is easy to overstate. Its not as if Ross's voice has disappeared from the airwaves. MMGs dominance is, to some degree, taken for granted. They were never innovators, and dont have to rely upon that kind of short-term inspiration for success. Instead, they are all about consistency. Ross built upon the sounds of others, put them on a wider stage. His pen is as strong as ever. Panera Bread, from earlier this year, included some of his best writing yet. Yes, MMG may have peaked, but theyre also one label that it would be unwise to count out completely.

      Worldstar views should have no place in anything though they take money for views. fucking Gunplay video had 7 million views supposedly but only 300 comments and the youtube version had actually 10 000 views. MMG pays for views and downloads on Worldstar and Datpiff!
