Rick Ross Absent From Detroit's Summer Jamz Concert

Rick Ross was reportedly denied entry by more than 100 people outside of HOT 107.5's Summer Jamz concert.

Rick Ross was slated to headline HOT 107.5′s Summer Jamz Concert Saturday night in Detroit but didn't reportedly due to a mob of over 100 people blocking his entry.
The controversy between the Maybach Music Group headman and Detroit may have something to do with a song released by Motown native Trick Trick, who released a song called "No Fly Zone," featuring Royce Da 5'9." The single's main message calls for a ban of any artist who doesn't collaborate with artists native to The D.
According to HotNewHipHop, the plan succeeded as Ross did not perform as scheduled. HOT 107.5's program director, Jay Hicks, subsequently explained his absence to the crowd.
“We had Rick Ross right outside here tonight," Hicks said. "At about 11 o’clock, 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.”
Rick Ross later posted a tweet about the controversy calling it a "peace protest" and that there were "locked gates" blocking his entry. Saturday's lineup also included A$AP Ferg, Rico Love, Sevyn Streeter, B.o.B, and Scarface, among others.
