Rick Ross has cancelled a pair of tour stops in North Carolina this weekend. Some speculate it could be due to recent threats from local gangsters.

The Miami rap star and artists from his Maybach Music roster were slated to perform in Charlotte and Greensboro, but have pulled out last minute. His camp has yet to issue a statement, but Live Nation says tickets will be refunded starting Friday (December 7).

The cancellation comes on the heels of death threats made by members of notorious street gang, the Gangster Disciples, who issued a warning to Ross, via Youtube (see below), to stay out of Charlotte, North Carolina.

It's unclear if the threats were the cause.
