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."

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.

Unless your from chicago...you have no idea what the gds can do. Especially with how bad the economy is, people can joke all they want about the gang sh*t but its for real. There are some cold blooded killers out in the city, people can act all hard on the computer screen but try taking a trip in the south side at night. They dont care... and its gonna get even more heated since that interview with ross talking like he aint scared. You should be bro its easy to be tough when you got security around you. But what you gonna do if you meet a gd and he has hate for you and pulls out a .38 stop feeding the fire ross. We live in a city where you can get shot just for bumping into someone

Ricky Ross isn't stupid, him and his crew wouldn't make it out of the CHI alive. South Side GDs aren't to be messed with. Heck they kill each other for fun what makes you think they wouldn't go after him?

Gang members are so 1995 and so pathetic. Nothing but cowards. They don't have anything to lose. I saw their pathetic video where they made the threat. They really need to go back to school and get their life. Talking about Rick Ross is using freemasonry symbols and he shouldn't be since he's not one. As if!
