Schoolboy Q involved in a shooting in Denver, CO

On Friday, newly famous rapper Schoolboy Q was set to perform at famous venue Red Rocks in Denver, Colorado with Flying Lotus and Nas. The show went well without any altercations, but after the show gun shots were heard.

The altercation left three victims injured who had to be sent to Denver Hospital. According to local authorities, there was a gunman who was shooting at the car that Q was sitting in. There are pictures out showing local authorities detaining Schoolboy at the scene.

According to the LA Times, the gunman shot a rifle at Q’s car, which had four other people in it, and then retreated back into the brush that surrounds the venue. Q and the four others then drove fifteen miles before they were pulled over and detained for questioning.

Authorities say they have no suspect for the case, but are further investigating. Schoolboy Q took to Twitter to say, "i'm str8..... don't trip."

Rick Ross forced to cancel performance at Detroit's Summer Jamz

On Saturday night, Rick Ross was scheduled to perform at Detroit Summer Jamz hosted by HOT 107.5. At midnight, program director, Jay Hicks came on stage to say Rick Ross, "is in fear of his life and that n*gga is not performing here tonight and he may never come back to Detroit.”

The reason Rick Ross became fearful of his life is because recently rapper Trick Trick labeled Detroit a 'No Fly Zone,' meaning that any rapper who doesn't collaborate with a Detroit artist or add onto the music culture are not welcome. Trick Trick made the declaration in his song titled "No Fly Zone," and citizens are taking it very seriously. Rick Ross was met at the gates to the venue by 100 outraged fans.

Detroit is keeping it real. They will be friendly to artists that impact Detroit, but not Rick Ross.
