Rick Ross did not make his scheduled performance at a Detroit radio concert at the city’s Chene Park Amphitheater on Saturday night (June 21). The no-show came amidst rumors that he was blocked from entering the venue by a large mob of people at the behest of local rapper, Trick Trick.
Ross was supposed to headline the multi-artist bill that also included B.o.B., A$AP Ferg and Scarface, among others. According to concert promoter The Right Productions, Ross was confronted by “100 individuals” that would not allow the rapper and his entourage to enter the venue.
“This issue didn’t happen within Chene Park; it happened outside,” said David Rudolph, a spokesperson for The Right Productions (via MLive). “And it’s unfortunate that this was a tactic to prevent another artist performing.”
The program director for the Detroit radio station addressed the crowd of approximately 3000 people from the stage moments after the confrontation to announce that the show was over.
