He wasn’t driving a Maybach at the time, but Rapper Rick Ross was targeted with gunfire just the same. Cops have confirmed Rapper Rick Ross narrowly escaped the gunshots aimed at him, while he was driving a Rolls-Royce in Fort Lauderdale, FL, Monday morning. That’s before the shots caused the Maybach Music founder to crash the Rolls into a nearby building.
Sources say both the rapper and his reported girlfriend Shaterua L. Moragne-el – who was in the passenger set of the car at the time of the incident – walk away without injuries. The suspects who fired the shots reportedly fled the scene before cops arrived. Police reveal shell casings have been recovered from the crime scene. The investigation is ongoing.
Here’s what’s reported about the incident:
“A Rolls-Royce crashed into a building on Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale early Monday. Police are on the scene of the accident, which also reportedly involved a shooting.
WSVN-Channel 7 is reporting that shots were fired at the Rolls in which a “famous rapper” was riding before the car went into the building. Police are on the street marking bullet shells in the 1500 block of Las Olas. The road is shut down to traffic.”
Here’s what rapper 50 Cent had to say:
“Hahaha fat boy hit the building?lol it looks staged to me. No hole’s in da car”
Are the Gangster Disciples thought to be responsible for the shooting? I don’t know, but next time I see Gunplay, I’ll ask him…
