Rick Ross gave Larry Hoover one of his most notorious shout-outs on wax to date. However, Rozay allegedly had to fork over a large sum for invoking the Gangster Disciples founder’s name on his 2010 single. “B.M.F. (Blowing Money Fast).”
According to court documents, Gangster Disciples member Markell White alleges that Rozay coughed up $3 million to the Gangster Disciples following alleged threats from the gang. Crowned TV Courts says White spoke on the payment while testifying against fellow members of the Gangster Disciples.
“From my understanding, [Rick Ross] ended up paying like $3 million,” White said in court. “The initial payment was supposed to have been six, but I think they worked it out to like three.”
Following the release of “B.M.F.,” Rick Ross ran into some issues with the Gangster Disciples, who didn’t take too kindly to the rapper’s mention’s of their leader without compensation. Members of the gang were also alleged to have extorted Ross, news that was revealed in a 2016 indictment.
Larry Hoover was recently the subject of headlines when rappers Kanye West and Drake performed a benefit concert to help bring awareness to Hoover’s legal battle. The Chicago native is currently serving six life sentences at the ADX Florence prison in Florence, Colorado on charges that include conspiracy, extortion, money laundering, and running a continuing criminal enterprise.
