Rick Ross has canceled the remaining dates on his Maybach Music Group tour, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The last five shows were scheduled to take place over the next week in Nashville, Memphis, Houston, Detroit and New York. 

The rapper had initially canceled two shows in North Carolina after reportedly receiving death threats from the Gangster Disciples gang. On Friday afternoon, his representatives told the website AllHipHop.com that although the beginning of the tour had gone well, the remaining dates had been canceled due to the "apparent lack of organization and communication on the part of the tour promoter."

"I want to apologize to all of my fans who I missed performing for due to the cancellations and want to let them know that I will get back to their cities," Ross told the website. "I enjoyed my experience with my little bros Wale and Meek Mill and I’m ready to get back in the studio to make good music."

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
