Rick Ross‘ car show outperformed last year in a big way, so much so that a fan parachuted inside to get a glimpse — and fans might think he’d be offended, but the rapper’s response was actually quite surprising.
On Saturday (June 3), Rick Ross held his car show at his “Promise Land” estate in Fayetteville, Georgia. The event proved to be a massive success, attracting thousands of attendees as well as hosting performances by Meek Mill and Gucci Mane.
There were also several industry heavyweights spotted in attendance, like Tyler, the Creator, 2 Chainz, Gunplay and more. Aside from the big names, the event also made waves with the local community, especially car enthusiasts.
However, things got a little rowdy as well. Around that time, a video surfaced online showing Ross addressing a fan who had apparently parachuted into the car show.

While you would think the rapper would be upset, he seemed delighted that someone went above and beyond to attend his event. Ross is seen all smiles in the video, explaining the situation and even asking to see the footage.
As Ross made clear, he admired the parachuting fan and even hoped they wouldn’t be arrested. He did, however, express displeasure at not receiving any notice.
“Only thing I don’t like about it is he didn’t tell me what time to expect him jumping out of the goddam plane and landing in my backyard,” he said. “By the time I ran back there, they was dragging his ass … and he had a huge smile on his face and said, ‘please, please, please don’t press charges.'”
However, Ross joked if someone jumps the gate, he “will do you dirty,” but if you parachute, just give him some notice.
In addition to the flying fan trying to gain entry, numerous complaints were made that the show’s attendees allegedly trashed the venue afterward.
According to a report from MSN, the South Fulton, Georgia residents were “shocked” to learn that a plaza three miles away had been trashed after Ross’ car and bike show on Saturday (June 3) – and they believe it was from fans who couldn’t get into the show and just went there to party instead.
The rapper’s attorney has denied any link between his client and the trash, but residents are reportedly calling on him to take responsibility.
Rick Ross received a ton of pushback heading into the annual event as well, including police concern for “the potential impact” it could have on the community.
