Rick Ross the Target of Drive-by Shooting
Ut oh. Rapper Rick Ross, who is never short on controversial headlines, whether he is posing shirtless on magazine covers or passing out on planes or canceling concerts due to death threats, was reportedly involved in a drive-by shooting in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. this morning (Jan. 28).
Consequence of Sound reports that Ricky Rozay was the target of shooting, according to eyewitnesses. This feels like Tupac and Biggie all over again, and it bums us out.
The cops claim that neither passenger inside the Rolls was hurt. The names of those involved were not released officially, but other sources point squarely to Ross, the boss of the Maybach Music Group, who recently purchased property in the area.
There seems to be some serious threats on Ross' life lately. He had to cancel gigs in North Carolina after a Chicago gang known as the Gangstar Disciples threatened him. He canceled the tour, blaming the promoter's organization skills – actually, the lack thereof -- but it's been whispered that the threats had more to do with it. The Disciples have a Florida branch, which may or may not have had anything to do with this attempted hit on Ross.
The authorities are on the hunt for whomever fired the shots.
Be careful out there, Ricky Rozay.
