Rick Ross cancelled a weekend headlining performance at a Montreal festival due to personal reasons — only to perform in Nashville the same day.

On Saturday (June 15), the Drake antagonist and "Hustlin'" hitmaker was due to lead an evening of performances at Montreal's MURAL festival. However, organizers announced the day of that Ross had cancelled his performance "for personal reasons."

That same Saturday, Ross was revealed as a surprise performer at the Blavity House Party Music Festival in Nashville, TN, where he even snapped a couple of photos from the airport runway, in front of his Rick Ross-branded jet.

Things weren't the smoothest for Ross south of the border either. Billboard reports that the artist's time onstage was "shockingly cut short about six songs into his set."

"After requesting his DJ drop the next track, silence ensued," reads Billboard's report of the evening. "The DJ continued to press buttons to figure out the situation, but within the next seven minutes, Ricky Rozay had given away a bottle of Belaire champagne, threw on his backpack, and exited the stage for good."

Montreal's MURAL festival announced that due to Ross's absence, full refunds of daily tickets or partial refunds for weekend festival passes would be offered.
