He may have been the target of a drive-by shooting attempt, but rapper Rick Ross is laughing in the face of mortal danger these days, literally.
Stepping out in L.A. Thursday with a big smile on his face and a fat cigar in his mouth, he couldn't look less like a guy worried about being offed.
The Rick Ross shooting attempt in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., caused him to crash his car into a building January 28, but he was unharmed, and unfazed.
It's pretty clear that someone has it out for him - a Chicago gang even made a death threat late last year - but he's just layin' back and doin' his thing.
A little too casual, 50 Cent and other conspiracy theorists might say. Fiddy's gone on record alleging that Ross may have staged it all. Was it a hoax?
