Last September rap superstar Rick Ross cancelled his concert in Dubai at the last minute and left his UAE fans disappointed. However, the Def Jam artist is returning to the region and promises this time to actually show up and perform on 4 October.
The heavily tattooed hip-hop impresario aims to make his first ever gig in the Middle East an evening to remember as he invites his supporters to join him at Al Badia Golf Course at Dubai Festival City.
Ross, 37, has had a string of hits and has collaborated in the past with fellow rap heavyweights such as Jay Z, Drake, Busta Rhymes and Nicki Minaj.
The Maybach Music head honcho, whose real name is William Leonard Roberts, has had a tumultuous year after being targeted in a drive-by shooting earlier this year. On 27 January, Ross and his girlfriend were attacked in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The couple had been out celebrating his birthday when their Rolls Royce was picked on, and causing them to crash into an apartment.
