Rick Ross says he is not hiding from gang members who made death threats against him; but the Chicago Police Department took the videotaped message seriously enough to launch an investigation.
Self-proclaimed members of the Chicago-based Gangster Disciples posted a video in which they demand Rick Ross cut a check for GD founder Larry Hoover. The video went viral a few weeks ago, and Ross then cancelled the remaining dates on his tour.
The Chicago PD was made aware of the video, and will be taking a closer look at the YouTube post.
Ross told Miami radio station the real reason he cancelled the tour was due to shoddy promoting -- and claims it had nothing to do with the GD threats.
Ross defiantly said he is not afraid to go to Chicago, and humbly added, "Ricky Ross is a boss. You can't cancel a Ricky Ross show without Ricky Ross's permission."
