No Rick Ross for Sumfest

Organizers of Reggae Sumfest have announced that rap artiste and music mogul Rick Ross will not appear on the show as previously billed.

Rick Ross was scheduled to perform for local fans on July 17.

However, organizer, Summerfest Productions, says Ross is unable to travel at this time.

Ross had been denied bail last month, but when the 39-year-old rapper appeared in a Georgia courtroom on Wednesday his US$2 million request for bond was approved by the judge.

As a condition of his bail, Ross reportedly also agreed to 24-hour electronic monitoring that would keep track of him at all times.

Summerfest Productions says the team is currently working to find a suitable replacement and will make an announcement in the coming days.
