Rick Ross Claps Back at Promoter: You Gotta Pay The Cost for Upsetting the Boss

Rick Ross says he had a valid excuse for blowing off a scheduled gig, claiming the promoter suffered the consequences after not following the agreed upon rules.

Ross filed a response against Mithriac Entertainment Group in their ongoing lawsuit for an alleged breach of contract.

Back in 2013, MEG said they signed a deal to have Ross perform at the University of Texas, but he no-showed when the concert went down.

MEG said they paid the “Hustlin” rapper $110,000 for a 45-minute set, including a deposit for $55,000 which was wired directly to Ross’ account.  They also paid advances to Meek Mill for $20,000 and Machine Gun Kelly for $12,000.

Ross says it’s pretty obvious why he didn’t show up — claiming the promoter didn’t read the fine print about not using his image for advertising until the concert was sold out.  He also says the promoter failed to acquire an agreed upon $2 million insurance policy.

He’s now suing MEG accusing them of breaching the deal, and requesting that the suit gets tossed and he is looking for damages for inconvenience.
