50 Cent Believes Rick Ross’ Drive-By Incident Was Staged


Rick Ross made headline news this morning when he was reportedly the target of a drive-by shooting attempt in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Ross, who was celebrating his 36th birthday today, reportedly had bullets fire towards his Rolls Royce as he was leaving a dinner in his honor. The bullets missed the Rolls Royce but the vehicle slammed into the restaurant. Although nobody was injured in the melee, 50 Cent is calling shenanigans.

“Hahaha fat boy hit the building? lol it looks staged to me. No hole’s in da car,” 50 tweeted shortly after the news broke. Ross and 50, who have been adversaries dating back to 2009, rekindled their beef this year at the BET Hip-Hop Awards when a melee broke out between the two crews.

In 50 Cent’s latest video for “Major Distribution” featuring Snoop Dogg and another Ross foe Young Jeezy, 50 showcased a Maybach Music Group chain that reportedly belonged to Gunplay and was taken from him during the award show fight.

“It came from a jeweler. Jewelers, they made it. Yeah, we got it and ended up putting it in the video,”  50 explained Thursday to MTV about the chain’s appearance. “That’s what rappers do: Rappers put jewelry in videos.”

  • Sad how 50 is struggling to remain relevant. If you use a little common sense you’ll see how ridiculous it would be for someone to stage this. It wouldn’t be worth the risk. A bystander could have been shot or killed by mistake, the people in the car could have injured themselves, witnesses could have witnessed the staging, and worst of all you end up in a police investigation that you can’t control. Because of Ross’s high profile the press and police will scrutinize every detail of the incident. And on top of all that one of the co-conspirators could crack under pressure and rat out everyone involved. I know 50 needs attention right now with his new album coming out but he could make up something more believable than this.
