Trick Trick Addresses Rick Ross Confrontation in Detroit [VIDEO]
Detroit rhymer Trick Trick is addressing the situation in which he and 100 individuals allegedly formed a human blockade so Rick Ross was prevented from performing at the 107.5 FM Summer Jamz concert last Saturday (June 21).
In an 11-minute video, titled "Trick Trick Message," the mayor of the D criticized the media who reported on the alleged incident.
“Concerning myself and that individual, it’s none of your motherf---in’ business,” he barked at the camera, never referencing Ross by name. “That’s a grown man, I’m a grown man. Grown men don’t put grown men business out to the motherf---in' public."
As we previously reported, Ross said no one confronted him at the venue and he denied reports that he feared for his life.
Reps who booked music acts at the venue, Chene Park, said in a press release that 150-plus people, including Trick Trick, formed a human blockade to stop Ross from entering the building. Police made no arrest and no 911 calls were made regarding the incident that night.
Rozay is reportedly on a “No Fly Zone” list, which means that any rapper who doesn’t support Detroit artists or pay respect to the city are not invited to perform. Some critics have described the list as an extortion plot to get money from artists but Trick Trick says that is completely false.
"I move how I move because I stand for something," he said. "My 'No Fly Zone' ain’t about taking nobody’s money. I don’t want yo motherf---in' money. That man said didn’t nothing happen to him. He’s correct. Nothing happened to him."
"All I did was show brothers how to stand for something and stand for it without being violent," he continued. "What the f--- is the problem with that? Didn’t nobody get arrested, wasn’t was no bloodshed, didn’t nothing happen wrong other than some people got disappointed in not seeing who they wanted to see. And for that ladies and gentleman I apologize. But me and that man’s business is me and that man’s business."
Trick Trick spoke on a number of topics in his heated diatribe. In the end, he says the "No Fly Zone" list is not meant to hurt artists but rather gain respect for his beloved city of Detroit.
"I don’t want your money. If you’re coming here to get $100,000, by all means get your $100,000,” he said. “The natives have come to support you and be a part of your movement. Don’t turn your ass at ‘em, take their money and turn your ass at ‘em. And you don’t owe them no money, but respect them."
