Rick Ross finally addressed the incident at Detroit’s Summer Jamz 17 concert, claiming that there was never any real confrontation between himself and local legend Trick Trick.
In an interview with Miami’s 99 Jamz, the rapper says he never actually made it to the venue. Instead, his team went ahead of him and found locked gates… and the 100+ goons that supposedly confronted them were peaceful, he says.
“I never even made it to the venue,” Ross explained. “Me and [Trick Trick], we never crossed paths. He never spoke with Rozay. And I expect him to clarify that.”
“It was very peaceful,” he added. “I got this story that we’re supposed to pay the mob gang. That’s totally false.”
Initial reports said that Trick Trick and his crew blocked the entrance to the venue, telling both Ross and his entourage that if they enter, they won’t be leaving… enforcing his “No Fly Zone” policy on the rap star. From there, Rozay supposedly left because he was in fear for his life. He denies this story, calling it a complete fabrication.
Despite the mishap, the rapper said he was paid for the scheduled gig, but feels bad for that fans who wanted to see him.
“For whatever reason they did this, I don’t understand it,” said Rozay. “Because if there’s somebody that’s supposed to be from the jungle, in the jungle you don’t lock the lions out. You let the lions in and lock ’em in. That’s when you get your confrontation if that’s what you want.”
