Rick Ross Threatened by Gangster Disciples in Chicago: "F#$% You ... Cut the Check"
The Bawse might not be worried. But the Chicago Police ain't takin' chances.
After receiving death threats last week from a North Carolina chapter of the Gangster Disciples, Rick Ross rolled up to the 99 Jamz studio to shrug off any beef with the GDs as "one sucka that got a personal vendetta."
But according to TMZ, the Chi-Town po-po are investigating. The reason: Another Disciples video (over a month old, though purportedly outta the Windy City) telling Rozay that "you gotta cut the check."

During his visit to 99 Jamz, Ross insisted, "I'm a certified man. I am a real boss."
And he added, denying any beef with the Gangster Disciples' leadership in Illinois: "I was just in Chicago a week and a half ago. That's the birthplace of the GDs."
However, the Disciples in this clip are pissed. And they want a cash kickback for the Bawse's use of GD founder Larry Hoover's name as well as the gang's six-point star.
"Public service announcement," the Gangster Disciple spokesman says, "Rick Ross, the whole Maybach Music family ... Fuck you."
"We pulling up on you. We pressin' up on you, the whole Maybach. Don't matter who in Maybach, everyone on your label is in trouble.
"Whatever city, whatever state, we pressin' on you. So all you promoters, you better know that before you book Rick Ross, you better talk to us."
"You were supposed to cut the check," the GD concludes. "But you didn't cut the check. So now you gotta cut the check."
