Rick Ross Shooting: Five New Details From the Investigation, Presented by the Bawse Himself

Categories: Crime
Domestic Bawse.

Rick Ross' Year of Difficult Bawsing continues. Since he was the target of a mysterious drive-by on January 28 in downtown Fort Lauderdale, the hip-hop superstar has found himself in the headlines a lot -- and not for your typical Don-like behavior. Despite the attention, there's been little new detail aired about the would-be Bawse scrubbing.

Maybe in an effort to kick up new leads, last week the Fort Lauderdale Police Department released the preliminary police reports from the incident, offering new answers to some basic Who-What-Where-and-Whens about the shooting. Obviously, we still don't know much about the elusive Why?

Still, the new info fills out the picture of what happened that night on Las Olas Boulevard. And because so much of who the Bawse is comes from his lyrics, we thought we'd use his rhymes to mash-up art and life. Take it from here, Captain:


1. Killers talking 'bout me, it ain't no talk about me/It ain't no walking 'round me, see all these killers around me.

We've finally got an idea about the assailants in the crime. According to two witnesses, a maroon, older four-door BMW pulled next to Ross' Rolls-Royce at the intersection of East Las Olas Boulevard and SE 15th Avenue. This would have been what both vehicles were looking at right before the bullets started flying. Three to four black males were inside the vehicle. They opened fire, and Ross swung his vehicle to the right down 15th before crashing to a stop not far from the intersection.

I AM certain ALL of his lily-white LAS OLAS neighbors wish he would just get the RAP out because i am sure with the stock market UP to an all time high there are plenty of TOKEN BLACK investment bankers who could BUY ross OUT


After seeing Rick shirtless, I am thinking he should write a tune entitled, "Gynecomastia."

Think of the rhyming possibilities!
