Rick Ross was run out of Detroit on Saturday, June 21st, prior to a scheduled performance at Hot 107.5’s Summer Jamz 17.

When the Miami rapper showed up at Chene Park he was met by 100 goons who denied him entrance. Ross failed to get in touch with Trick Trick, the unofficial “Mayor of Detroit,” before he hit town to get the necessary clearance.

Jay Hicks, the Program Director of Hot 107.5 had to explain to the audience why Ross wouldn’t be performing.

 

“I’ma be real with y’all, I’ma be real as bleep,” Jay said. “We had Rick Ross right outside here tonight at about 11:00. When he was pulling up to come into Chene Park, he was met by 100 individuals outside. We have tried to pull every resource together and asked him to come back. He is in fear of his life. He’s in fear of his life and that bleep is not performing here tonight. And he may never perform in Detroit again.”

It’s well known within the industry that you need to check in with Trick Trick before performing in Detroit. Apparently Ross didn’t make that call.

 

Trick-Trick is credited with being the man responsible for making Detroit, Michigan a “No Fly Zone”, meaning rappers that are not from the city who do not support artists from the city or make contributions to the city are not welcome to perform in Detroit. He is best known in the underground rap scene for attacking rappers like Trick Daddy,Yung Berg, and Styles P when they came to Detroit. They were evidently talking about the city in a manner he didn’t appreciate and he had them “touched” by his crew

 

Other acts on the bill, Scarface, A$AP Ferg, B.o.B, Rico Love and more performed as scheduled.
