It's been two days since Rick Ross canceled a pair of North Carolina tour dates due to gang-related threats, and now the rapper has put an end to the remainder of his Mayback Music Group tour, citing promoter problems.

MTV reports that the Teflon Don will not be performing a total of seven shows, including a New York City gig on December 16. Other stops on the tour included Nashville, Memphis, Houston and Detroit, in addition to the previously canceled NC dates.

"I want to apologize to all of my fans who I missed performing for due to the cancellations and want to let them know that I will get back to their cities," Ross told on Friday. "I enjoyed my experience with my little bros Wale and Meek Mill and I'm ready to get back in the studio to make good music."

Although the NC dates were reportedly scrapped because of gang-related threats, which Ross never addressed, a rep for the rapper tells the tour was canned due to "apparent lack of organization and communication on the part of the tour promoter."
