Despite his feud with DJ Envy and a rumored denial of permission by the police for the Rick Ross car show, the Boss held his second annual car and bike show on Saturday, June 3 without major incident.

Residents in the South Fulton County neighborhood had claimed the debut show of the car and bikes brought so much traffic to the neighborhood disrupting activities reason for which they objected to the car show.

The Rick Ross team however begged to differ pointing to a host of gains for the community including introducing a financial literacy programme to Fayette and Fulton.

Ahead of the show, Ross also called Rozay took to Instagram: “These Airbnbs going through the roof. It’s gon’ be more gas sold on June 3 than y’all sold in six months. Y’all gotta think of the financial literacy that Rozay bringing to the table.

“It ain’t too late to print your signs. The closer you are to the Promise Land, charge ’em $100 a parking spot. The further you are, charge ’em $50. Come on y’all. Y’all wanna make some money or not? We got car washes coming out here, we feeding a lot of people.”

Initially denied a permit by Fayette County before being approved in the final hour, local police have since thanked Ross for cooperating with them in making the show a success.

But the parking concerns of residents of South Fulton lingered as a plaza in the area got trashed. they believe fans who couldn’t get into Ross’ show came to the plaza parking lot miles away to party leaving behind plastic cups, liquor bottles, food packs as well clogging toilets needing plumbing work.
