I'm just generally laughing at Ross's persona. Seems like karma that something like this would happen.

No because he's a fake and shouldn't run his mouth like a gang banger if he doesn't want to get involved or never was.

He's laughable. I obviously don't wish death on the dude, but this kind of thing shouldn't come as a surprise to him

Every rappers persona is real and they should never talk about anything unless they want to be threatened by real gangs with violence. K

You are an idiot.

Rick Ross' come up is completely different from other rappers. If you just want to side step the entire issue that's just fine.

I know how Rick Ross came up. I'm not side stepping an issue. He cancelled a show because he was threatened by a real gang.

But in all my years reading these boards, I've known not to take your musical opinions seriously, especially if its about rap so carry on.
