DJ Vlad Files Lawsuit Against Rick Ross
Just five days after an altercation between DJ Vlad and Rick Ross crew went down at the Ozone Awards [click to read] last Sunday in Houston, DJ Vlad has filed a $4 million dollar lawsuit against Ross, claiming the Miami emcee rapper orchestrated a brutal attack.
Rick Ross orchestrated a brutal attack upon DJ Vlad, carried out at his direction by his accomplices, in retribution for media coverage of Rick Ross prior life as a correctional officer, claims Vlads attorney Brian Caplan as told to MTV.
The altercation (that left DJ Vlad with seven stitches below one of his eyes, a corneal abrasion, three facial fractures and possible nerve damage) is alleged to be in reaction to Vlads YouTube channel. In which he recently interviewed the Clipse about Ross alleged former life as a C.O. [click to read] as well as an interview with incarcerated drug dealer Freeway Ricky Ross, where Ricky Ross disassociated himself from the rapper [click to read].
According to DJ Vlad's complaint letter that he shared with HipHopDX, Ross "lured DJ Vlad to a meeting for the purpose of obtaining retribution" during the TJs DJs/Ozone Awards weekend. Ross initially made contact with Vlad via text message on August 10th saying "Niggas will learn...trillaaa." After Vlad responded, not knowing who the text was from, Ross responded by saying "Ross...im hearing things." Ross then called Vlad and said, among other things, "I've been hearing things about me on your website...We gonna make a story...We going to see each other... We going to talk...Where are you?" Both realized they were in Houston for the Ozone Awards and arranged a meeting on the 2nd floor of the Hilton Americas - where the TJs DJs Conference was being held. Ross, accompanied by at least four others, told Vlad "We got beef," and shortly after those with Ross attacked Vlad while Ross watched.
Vlad is seeking $2 million in compensatory damages and $2 million in punitive damages.
