18 Bullets: More Details Emerge On Rick Ross Shooting

(AllHipHop News) New details emerge in the recent drive-by murder attempt on Rick Ross. Fort Lauderdale Police state that 18 shots were fired during the assassination attempt.

There is no official word on whether Ross fired a weapon before crashing his vehicle into an apartment building but police do say he played a major part in surviving. “It’s accurate to say he dodged multiple rounds,” says Fort Lauderdale Police Lieutenant Frank Sousa.  The police claim the altercation between Ross and an as-of-yet unknown vehicle occurred over a span of two to three blocks on Las Olas Boulevard.

The police have not released details on the shooter’s vehicle, where the bullets fell or surveillance video as they are still apart of this ongoing criminal investigation.

While no bullets impacted the Rolls Royce, Ross and his rumored girlfriend Shateria L Morange-el were driving in,  it was confirmed that two hit the windows in Tiffany Nail & Foot Spa on the north side of Las Olas Boulevard and a diner.  Following the shooting, reports circulated that the MMG boss has enlisted 24-hour armed security and has not made a public statement on the incident yet.

50 Cent has continued his on-going campaign to discredit authenticity of this shooting. Rick Ross is set to appear at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards on February 10th. His Gold-certified 2012 album, God Forgives, I Don’t is nominated for Rap Album of the Year against Lupe Fiasco, The Roots and constant collaborators Drake, Nas and 2Chainz.

    When I was 6 years old in 1988 I was in a drive by outside of my grandmothers house in South Phoenix. It wasn’t until recently I was made aware that South Side Posse had a hit out on me. Don’t believe me just check the bullet damage that happened to my Nana’s next door neighbor’s house and windows, None hit me though but I knew they were meant for me. I mean that’s what a drive by is lets shot at everything but the thing we mean to hit.

    • Idestroystupidpeople

      How are we supposed to check your Nana’s next door neighbors house in Phoenix from a drive by that occured 25 years ago?

      • Tre C

        did you miss his sarcasm?

      • Sean Taylor

        It flew right over his head. Poor lil guy

      • and his name is i destroy STUPID people.Time for self-destruction.

    • infinit221

      Dude…everyone that has a half a brain understands what your saying and feels you. But your talking to dumb internet thugs…let’s just call them dit wits, that think they know everything when they have no idea what they’re talking about

    • DirttDurk


  • SpaceAge2012

    Man..Ricky set that shit up himself 4 several reasons & I’ll tell yall why.#1.(Publicity) It has become da most talked about story in hip hop since it happend & all during da time he’s promotin his new album.#2.(Protection) Now da cops are protectin him from da G.Ds & puttin pressure on them at da sametime,which is a problem them Gz don’t want.#3.(Material & Image) It gives him new material 2 rap about while falsely solidifyin his made up gangsta image as “The Teflon Don” 2 these kids. #4.(No Mo Worries) Now he can travel freely with all da armed guards he needs without puttin his boys lives in danger & not be ridiculed 4 it becus he’s created da perfect situation which calls 4 it.Plus he can get away with it now without lookin like a punk by sayin his label requested them 4 his protection.Not 1 single bullet hit his car out that AK clip not because that gun is so innaccurate,but becus Officer Ricky didn’t actually wanna risk gettin shot.That’s y his ppl sprayed up da buildings while he drove down da street & crashed da car when it was still in perfect condition.But I bet he’ll say,”I just ducked down & kept my foot on da gas.” Yea..so u can escape bullets but risk killing urself & some1 else shortly after in a crash?! C’mon son!

    • Yo I Swear You Hit It On The Head!!! I’m Down In Miami and Knew Him Prior to Fame and asked The People I Know When In Discussion of It “Ok, Y’all Know Ross…Do Any Of Y’all Put It Past Him to Stage This Shit???” Not One Person said they put it past him, and i ran down every single detail that you mentioned along with adding; Since When There was No Police in Las Olas??? Las Olas is Like The Broward County Version of South Beach, Also How Come No One New Ross Was Having a B Day Party, Promoters promote the hell out of all that he does,and generally when they do that the Police is Heightened around the areas of the Venue when a Celeb has a Event…It Just Don’t Add Up…You Don’t Miss a RR with a AK when “YOU” are the aggressor, how does the “Unknowing Victim” get away when you have plotted this??? This was all a ploy to become a Bigger Than Biggie and Pac Figure Because he Actually Survived, But What Did He Survive If The Bullets Never Bounced Anywhere Near Him???

      • SpaceAge2012

        Thank u Starr! Atleast u’re able 2 clearly see thru that bullsh!t,now please explain this 2 that dumb dumb ol cheerleadin ass Officer Ricky fan above us.

      • DirttDurk

        hahaha wht better way 2 catch a true drug dealer……sell n dope straight off ur i fone….ur on tha wire dope….u run ur mouf….then ur gone….ur …ur own snitch….run ur mouf like a bitch……ur …ur on snitch…tha laws dont have 2 do …shit…hahahahaha

      • SpaceAge2012

        Durk,what’s really sad is these lil kids actually are believin these fake niggas r real Gz & messin up their lives tryna live that bullsh!t these characters be talkin bout in their raps.I got a lil cousin locked up now cus he based his whole life on what 50 & Jeezy was rappin bout,now his lil girl is growin up without her daddy while random niggas are out here sluttin out his girl & drivin his whip.

      • DirttDurk

        hahaha @least lil flip shot his self hahahaha

    • Idestroystupidpeople

      Sigh…. another drawn out, factually unfounded, drab explanation. If you have a problem with officer Ricky then don’t buy his shit or talk about him, that just gives him more publicity.

      • SpaceAge2012

        I’m glad u’re able 2 put ur words 2gether so nicely,Kudos! If u’re not on their payroll then u better seek employment with M.M.G. a.s.a.p.cus u’re sure doin a great job backin that bullsh!t!

      • Dude never even said he was a fan of the man, he said your words have no facts behind them… stop acting like a little girl.

    • Q.

      Damn, akh…that’s some real Machiavellian sh!t right there, if it’s true. LOL
      I think what you’re saying is plausible, at the same time I get the feeling that cats out here are really willing to wet this dude up for frontin’.

      • SpaceAge2012

        Q,I know dudes really do wanna wet his perpetrating ass up 4 fakin da funk out here,& that’s why it’s a beautifully calculated move on his part.If u examine da timing of this so-called “assassination attempt” & da whole way this story has been reported 2 have played out,it just don’t add up bruh.Only kids will believe that sh!t.

    • Why would you want to look a scared chump for? That makes no sense. Nothing glamorous about driving your ride into a building all scared then hiring 24 hour police.

      • SpaceAge2012

        Lil nigga y u all up on my nutz like pubes 4?! I can’t even take ur dumb ass comments seriously cus it’s obvious that u’re another lil d!ckridin fake gangsta idolizin hipster.When u get hip 2 da ways of da real world & finally wake up,then we’ll talk.Until then,don’t wear ur snapbacks & skinnys 2 tight.F.O.H!!

      • Not sure what all that has to do with Rick Ross being shot at… You sound like your about 15 years old. You made a comment, I replied to it…I didn’t go to your house and knock on your door.

        Just stating the truth, Ross looks like a chump right now, why would you pretend to be a chump? Can’t answer the question?

      • SpaceAge2012

        What,did u just get on here 2 back up ur boyfriend?! If u had read da 1st comment I made,or simply just stroll up & read it,then u wouldn’t have 2 ask me these stupid questions.

      • You make little to no sense what so ever. You have any facts or anything to back up all that bullshit talk? I don’t like Rick Ross or his music, but your just grabbing straws with this National Enquirer bullshit.

        Call me some more names lil guy, get it all out….

      • JusNathaniel

        your a complete and utter donut

      • SpaceAge2012

        Thank u,but I still don’t know what kinda creature u are monkey man.

      • JusNathaniel

        Im a dinosaur.. you thick idiot

      • SpaceAge2012

        Shit..u sure fooled me,I figured u was some form of ape like creature.

      • JusNathaniel

        Yeah well you was wrong with that one you brainless cabbage

      • SpaceAge2012

        Lmao..Donut? Cabbage? Is that da best u got u ol orangatang monkey lookin ass nigga?! Boy shut ur ol groupie ass up!

      • lol @ “brainless cabbage”

    • Reminds me of “J. Ried”, shooting up the block, in “In 2 Deep”, starring LL Cool Jay.

      • SpaceAge2012

        Exactly,he wasn’t really tryna kill that man,but he got them dumb niggas 2 believe that he was really down with em by bussin at him,so it got him in there with God.Perception is da key 2 deception.More important than what is done is how it’s done.

      • >>In LL’s Voice : “You ain’t no cop J. Reid! Nah!”

        ( Getting head pushed down into squad car )

        *SHDH~N & LOL~N

        “You AIN’T NO COP!”

      • SpaceAge2012

        Lmao..when u play da game right niggas will believe u really are what u’re not til their dyin day.His ppl had told him that J was a cop,but J had secured their trust & loyalty by da actions of his gangsta persona,& that’s y they didn’t believed it until they were all in court snitchin on each other.

  • n8gga better do like 50 did signing spider loc and get Nipsey his 5 million and get that rollin 60 p0rotection………IJS

  • guddaboy

    if it was staged wouldn’t u think he would have told da person to atleast hit da back doors of the car 2 make it look good? hell he still fucked up da car by crashin it y not put some bullet holes in it. I say dat 2 say dis….I don’t think its staged.

    • if you aim in the car, especially european cars with steel cages, you stand a chance of having the bullet ricochet and “accidentally” hitting somebody

    • KingsCountyCrooklyn

      he was planning on getting the 2013 model next week and his insurance doesn’t cover bullet holes….get it

    • DirttDurk

      in tha word’s of Bob Marley…


  • Tre C
