Rapper Trick Trick is being accused of orchestrating the mob that stopped Rick Ross from entering a local radio station concert in Detroit. Trick Trick’s manager has come forward to address these allegations.
According to Trick’s manager, the Detroit rapper is set to address the rumors in a series of media interviews this week.
“Arthur Alston, Trick Trick’s manager, told The News his client will address the matter in interviews “this week,” releasing this statement Monday from Trick Trick. “To all those who want to know what the No Fly Zone is please go to 1:17 on this video and quote me there,” Trick Trick said.” (Detroit News)
According to a press release from the production company and venue in Detroit spokesperson David Rudolph, a local rapper started the chaos and it did not happen in the venue.
“This issue didn’t happen within Chene Park; it happened outside,” said Rudolph, who noticed a crowd outside the venue as Ross’ camp tried entering around 11 p.m. “And it’s unfortunate that this was a tactic to prevent another artist performing.” … “After nearly four hours of hip-hop groups and emcees rocking the mic the audience was informed by Jay Hicks, HOT 107.5 FM’s program director, that headlining artist and Miami-based rapper Rick Ross would not be performing – as a result a band of individuals led by a local rapper who prevented and threatened to harm Ross if he entered the grounds to perform at Chene Park Amphitheater.” (Statement)
“Well according to HOT 107.5?s AP, apparently Ross did not get the necessary clearance of Trick Trick, the self proclaimed “Mayor of Detroit City” because Ross was stopped by the “Good Squad” while attempting to gain access to the backstage gate of the show! We hear that Ross was allegedly afraid for his life and actually left the show…yes he bounced! “ (The Urban Daily)
