Rick Ross

Chicago PD Investigating

Death Threats from Gang

EXCLUSIVE

1211-rick-ross-chicago-tmz
Rick Ross says he's not hiding from gang members who made death threats against him -- but the Chicago Police Department took the videotaped message seriously enough to launch an investigation ... TMZ has learned.

You'll recall ... self-proclaimed members of the Chicago-based Gangster Disciples posted a video (below) -- in which they demand Rick Ross cut a check for GD founder Larry Hoover ... or else.



The video went viral a few weeks ago, and Ross then cancelled the remaining dates on his tour.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the Chicago PD was made aware of the video, and will be taking a closer look at the YouTube post.  

Ross told Miami radio station WEDR the real reason he cancelled the tour was due to shoddy promoting -- and claims it had nothing to do with the GD threats.

Ross defiantly said he's not afraid to go to Chicago, and humbly added ... "Ricky Ross is a boss. You can't cancel a Ricky Ross show without Ricky Ross's permission."

Remember back in 2008 and everybody hoped that electing a black president would make the rest of the black community join the rest of us and act like civilized adults? How wrong we were, its only given them another execuse to act like animals.

That's what happens when you claim to have Gangster Disciple affiliations, when in fact you don't. GD's don't play games when it comes to "dat life". Free King Larry Hoover

Why is it that it takes a half dozen of you big-bellied, flubber-butted Negroids to take care of business?
you wouldn't even need a gun, much less a half-dozen of your "back-up" Congolese brothers to tag along.
Just sit on your intended victim, there won't be anything of him left but a greasy spot on the floor.
What a chicken-s. h. i. t. bunch of puzz-ies.
Someone change their poopie diapers and give them all their pacifers so maybe they'll sit down and STFU.

That's what happens when you rap like you're a real killer or gangster. The down side is there are real killers and gangsters listening.

Id be willing to bet that Tub-O-Lard Ross has a Pee-Pee the size of a dried-elbow macaroni noodle. That is why he always is frustrated, he's so morbidly obese and fat that he can't find his little pee-pee in all those folds of fat.

Rick Ross is a fake ass hussy. He probably IS scared, because he isn't gangster at all, he is a phony, with a fake name stolen from a real gangster.
