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.
