Earlier today, we here at Crossfade mentioned that two dates in North Carolina got nixed after Ross received death threats from Gangster Disciple members.
But now representatives of Maybach Music Group tell us that all concerts till December 16 have been slashed by the promoter.
And the MMG camp isn't pleased with the decision.
UPDATE Rick Ross on Gangster Disciples, canceled MMG Tour: "Never was it due to any threats."
UPDATE #2 Rick Ross told by Gangster Disciples in Chicago: "F#$% you ... Cut the check." And the Chi-Town po-po are investigating.

"Rick Ross has been engaging in a tour which commenced November 2 and was initially scheduled to continue until December 2," MMG reps say in an email. "However, the tour was extended until December 16.
"Unfortunately, the tour promoter abruptly cancelled the Greensboro and Charlotte, NC, dates.
"Rick Ross completed the first leg of the tour without incident and eagerly anticipated performing the balance of the dates, but due to apparent lack of organization and communication on the part of tour promoter, the remaining shows of the tour will be canceled."
