Rick Ross canceled scheduled concerts in Charlotte and Greensboro, N.C., Thursday when he reportedly received death threats, WCNC reported.
The cancellation comes just one day after Rick Ross was nominated for a Grammy for Best Rap Album.
Though death threats seem to be the main cause for spiking the shows, the news site stated that no specific link was given.
The Gangster Disciples allegedly made the death threats towards Ross, who is one of the most popular hip-hop artists in the country, because of a one of his rap videos.
The news site explained that feud started because Ross mentioned the name of the Disciples' founder and used the Star of David to promote himself, which is the same symbol that the Disciples use.
“I think fans should be concerned. I think the parents should be concerned because you never know," the Rev. Paul Scott said to WCNC.
Scott is a minister and hip-hop journalist who is critical of the violence between rap artists.
“Hip-hop does not represent the real street,” he said. “The commercial hip-hop that Rick Ross promotes represents Wall Street, and Wall Street cares nothing about the loss of human life if they can make a dollar."
But Deon Cole, a friend of Ross and the assistant programming director for Power 98 Radio in Charlotte, assured WCNC that Ross’ fans have nothing to worry about.
He believes Ross and the Disciples will be able to work out their problems eventually, but Scott maintains that he would not allow his own children to go to a Ross concert and that no one took the feud between Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur seriously until they were both dead.
Those who bought tickets to the canceled shows can receive refunds starting on Friday, Live Nation Entertainment group said.
