FAYETTE COUNTY, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - “The show goes on,” rapper Rick Ross said after Fayette County officials tried to put a stop to a car and bike show he planned to host at his Georgia home in June.

The show, scheduled on June 3, is set to take place at his home which he refers to as “The Promise Land.”

Ross and the county were at odds over zoning issues that would force him to relocate or cancel his 2nd annual event.

Fayette County officials say they have traffic concerns, stating that he doesn’t have the proper permit to hold the event.

Ross posted to his Instagram story Wednesday saying that the show is still going on as planned adding that he loves Fayetteville so much he is running for mayor next year. Hip-hop icon Lil Wayne and Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane were previously confirmed by Rick Ross as two scheduled performers at the car show.

Some residents told Atlanta News First they are also concerned about traffic and noise, others said they had no concerns.

The self-proclaimed “Biggest Boss” has evolved from a Miami rap legend into a successful businessman, mogul, and innovator over the last nearly 20 years. He is best known for hits such as “Hustlin”, “Aston Martin Music,” “Chevy Ridin High,” “Pop That,” “Made Men” with Drake, “Stay Schemin”, “Lemon Pepper” with Drake, “Run It”, and more.

In March, Ross performed at State Farm Arena for the Legendz of the Streetz Reloaded tour.

Lil Wayne and Rick Ross are close friends and frequent collaborators, teaming up for more than a dozen hit songs, including “Holla At Me Baby,” “I’m So Hood Remix,” “We Taking Over”, “I’m On One,” “100 Million,” “John,” “Thug Cry,” “You Only Live Twice,” “God Did,” and more.

Atlanta News First reached out to Ross’ team for a comment and will update this article when we hear back.
