Rick Ross' Super Jam 2014 Gig Dampened By Subsequent Arrest

Rapper/hip hop icon Rick Ross was arrested Friday following his SuperJam concert in North Carolina. Despite the coincidence, the arrest had nothing to do with the gig. In fact, it was due to a previous marijuana charge, for which the rapper, whose real name is William L. Roberts, failed to appear in court.

Ross has a history of possession charges dating back to 2008.

According to the Greensboro News & Record, the Mastermind was taken to a magistrate's office as soon as he was done performing, but he was eventually released after posting a $1,000 bond. His new court date has not been announced.

The marijuana charges are not new for Ross, who has had several run-ins with the law on similar charges in 2008 and 2011. The Associated Press’ request for comment from Universal Music Group have not been answered and the only insight into the night of the concert  comes from a tweet by Ross from Saturday morning.

Ross and his management are yet to address the matter publicly.
