Rapper Rick Ross has canceled his show this weekend in Charlotte, North Carolina, allegedly due to threats made by gang members in the area.

The so-called Gangster Disciples released a video via YouTube warning the recently Grammy nominated artist to stay out of Charlotte.

The alleged gang members claim to have a beef with Ross because of his use of the name of their founder, Larry Hoover, and the street gang’s symbol, the Star of David, on his latest mixtape Black Bar Mitzvah.”

Minister and hip-hop journalist Paul Scott told WCNC“I think fans should be concerned I think the parents should be concerned because you never know.”

“No one took the Tupac-Notorious BIG beef seriously until they were both dead,” he added.

The show’s promoter, Live Nation, will be refunding fan tickets.
