Rick Ross has revealed that he intends to run for Mayor of Fayetteville after feuding with the city council over his car show. Despite his application for a permit to host the car show being denied, Ross still insists that the show will go on as planned.
The permit was denied due to Ross’ neighbors notifying the Fayetteville Board of Commissions of the traffic complaints caused by the inaugural Car and Bike Show last year.
“I love Fayetteville so much. Next year I’m running for mayor,”
he said on his Instagram Story.
“That’s right. The boss Rick Ross running for mayor of Fayetteville. I wanna know how many votes did it actually take to vote in the mayor of Fayetteville.
“I need to know that ‘cause we gon’ become that. We gon’ make that happen, and we gonna have a good time. We gon’ give some people opportunities, we gon’ give some people raises and, of course, we gon’ have to clean some people out.”
Rozay is slated to host his second annual car show at his sprawling Promise Land estate on June 3 with performances from himself and Gucci Mane.
After catching wind of the county’s ruling, Ross said he isn’t worried about potential roadblocks that may prevent the event from going forward.
“Breaking news, the Rick Ross Car Show June 3 goes on. It must go on,” he declared in a series of clips posted to his Instagram Story.
“It’s a private event on private property with VIPs and you’re invited. Tickets still available online. It’s going to be a beautiful event. Shoutout to the beautiful city of Fayetteville.”
The MMG mogul continued: “This when I become great during the challenges. That’s what I like. That’s why I was always one to initiate certain things because I love the challenge.”
“I don’t have a problem going against the challenges because Ricky Rozay ready. Is it really a challenge?”
Tickets to Ross’ event are still currently available online with, prices ranging between $325 to $2,500. However, the site says that “no refunds” will be offered.
