Rick Ross was reportedly turned away from a scheduled performance at Hot 107.5’s Summer Jamz concert in Detroit last night (Jun. 21). According to the station’s program director Jay Hicks, the MMG boss’ entrance was thwarted by a large group protesting his entry into Chene Park.
Addressing the crowd about the issue before announcing that the concert would be ending, Hicks informed the crowd of the situation.
“We had Rick Ross right outside of here tonight. At about 11 o'clock, when he was pulling up to come into Chene Park, he was met by 100 individuals outside,” Hicks said. “We are trying to pull every resource together and ask him to come back. He is in fear of his life. I’m just being real. He is in fear of his life, and that nigga is not performing here tonight. And he may never come back to Detroit.”
Meanwhile, Rick Ross took to Twitter following the incident, calling it a “peace protest.”

Details regarding Rozay’s lack of entry are unclear, but reports have speculated it may be due to Detroit native Trick Trick’s song, “No Fly Zone,” on which he takes ownership of who can enter the city. Neither Rick Ross nor Trick Trick have directly addressed this claim.
