The Mastermind has spoken, and he says that he was not deterred by an angry crowd at the gates of Hot 107.5's Summer Jamz concert in Detroit. Instead, it was just a padlock.

"Somebody is deceiving the people of Detroit like Kwame Kilpatrick did," Rick Ross told TMZ.

Ross was to perform at Chene Park Amphitheater, Saturday (June 22). A$AP Ferg, B.o.B, Rico Love, Scarface and Sevyn Streeter were among the other stars on the bill. Although he was paid, Ross said, he feels for the fans who were expecting to see him.

"It's nothing I took personal," he explained. "This what personally bothered me: was all the kids that's hitting you up on Twitter that stood out there for six hours and couldn't see me because of someone else's decision."

The mob version of the story was initially backed by the station's program director, Jay Hicks, who said, "I'm going to be real with y'all ... At about 11-o-clock, when he was pulling up to come into Chene Park, he was met by 100 individuals outside. We have tried to pull every resource together and asked him to come back. He is in fear of his life."

If the 100 individuals were life-threatening, however, Ross had no idea. "Luv #Detroit I wuz ready to killm 2nite,heard it wuz a peace protest wit picket signs and locked gates haa 😂😂," he tweeted that same day.
