Rapper Rick Ross announced dates for his upcoming "Rich Forever" European tour on Thursday just one day after a man was found shot to death in front of his Miami home.
He will embark on a 14 day tour that will begin in Lille, France and finish off in April in Manchester.
The tour will be dedicated to promoting the rappers latest mixtape, "Rich Forever," and build-up anticipation for his upcoming album titled "God Forgives, I Don't."
During the tour Ross will perform in many areas in the European region including Switzerland, London, Amsterdam, Norway, Geneva, Paris and Manchester.
It seems that there is a market for the rapper's music overseas. Ross just came off a great year after MTV voted him to be the hottest MC in hip hop music for 2011. Despite suffering a seizure that left him unconscious during a flight to from Ft. Lauderdale to Memphis he still managed to make a huge impact in the music industry this year by signing big name artists such as Wale, Meek Mill and even reaching out to hip hop veteran DMX to join his MMG label. DMX respectfully declined, but appreciated the offer.
The rapper also made headlines on Wednesday when police found a man who died from a gunshot in front of the rapper's Miami Gardens home. Police did bring Ross in for questioning; however, he is not a suspect in the case since he was not present there during the time of the shooting. The rapper normally uses this property in order to house friends who need a place to stay and also to record new music.
The man's body was found near the house's front gate which leads to the main entrance. He was discovered lying in a pool of his own blood.
