Rick Ross, the Teflon Don, Rick Rozay, whatever he's calling himself these days, was involved in a car crash yesterday (28th Jan) and as CNN reports there are fears that Ross was driving away from gunfire, which may have been related to street gang threats against the rapper.
Neither Ross nor his female passenger were injured in the alleged drive by shooting, but YouTube videos say that a gang is after him. "We're pulling up on you," a man who identified himself as a member of the Gangster Disciples warned in one of the videos, according to CNN. "Whatever city, whatever state, the pressure on." They're after money from Ross who uses a star of David for one of his albums, which they claim refers to one of the founders of the Gangster Disciples and their music. They seem to have forgotten about Judaism. "We need that cash right now," they said.
Ross retorted, however that he "Ain't never no checks getting cut". Adding, "I don't play those games. I consider that extortion."
He's been in trouble with another gang leader over the past few years when a man claiming to be the 'original' Rick "Freeway" Ross, claims Ross/Rozay/Teflon Don adopted his name while Freeway was in prison. "The reality is I want justice done," the original Ross told CNN. "I know that he took his name and image from my life and believe he is unfairly profiting off my story... I have my own use for my intellectual property and did not need this confusion created."
