Montreal, Canada

Rick Ross announced that he had to cancel his concert in Montreal due to “personal reasons,” but ended up performing in Nashville on the same date.

Rozay was originally booked to perform at the Mural Festival in Montreal, Canada on Saturday (June 15), but the event’s organizers announced that he had pulled out of the performance at the last minute.



In a statement, the festival said: “For personal reasons, Rick Ross has made the decision to cancel his performance at the Festival.

“In the coming days, we will provide a full refund of the daily tickets you purchased or a partial refund of Weekend 2 Passes and Festival Passes if applicable.”

Nothing seemed unusual until he showed up at Blavity House Party Music Festival on the same night without any further explanation.

One fan joked that Rick Ross pulled out of the festival due to his ongoing issues with Drake: “Maybe Ross was scared to come to Canada after the Drake feud.”

Rozay recently caught some heat from former drug dealer Freeway Ricky Ross, from whom he took his stage name.



The convicted drug lord, who has been involved in various legal battles with the Maybach Music Group founder, hit out at the rapper during an appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience.

“Every time I’m around, he disappears,” he told Rogan. “These guys, when you got money, they don’t care if you beating women or making them lick tampons. Everybody fuck with you.

“He was on top of the world at one time. He was a correctional officer, but when he got some money they forgot he was a correctional officer. You got gangsters doing records with him. People will say they hate snitches but they doing records with a police officer.”

Rozay and the original Rick Ross have had a long-running dispute over the rapper’s use of his name.



Back in 2010, the former drug kingpin filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against the MMG mogul, claiming Ross used his name and likeness to further his music career.

The rapper later responded to the lawsuit by saying: “We just gonna let the people deal with that. It’s like owning a restaurant: you’re gonna have a few slip and falls. You get lawsuits, you deal with them, and get them out your way…sometimes you lose.”

A trial over the dispute eventually got underway in 2013, with the court ruling that Rick Ross could continue using the name as his rap moniker.
