Witnesses to the infamous Rick Ross drive-by in South Florida say another car pulled up beside his Rolls Royce and numerous gunshots were fired, police say.

The rapper then crashed into a nearby building, unharmed.

A Fort Lauderdale police report released Thursday says witnesses saw three or four people inside an older model, burgundy or maroon BMW before shots rang out.

He was with his girlfriend, fashion designer Shateria L. Moragne-el, on January 28. The bullets from the Rick Ross shooting struck nearby businesses.

Fortunately, no one was injured in the attempted murder.

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.

Rick Ross, Cigar

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?

Police say they've recovered 18 shells from the scene of the apparent drive-by Rick Ross shooting attempt in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., early Monday.

Officials won't say whether or not Ross, 37, also fired a weapon before or while he crashed in an attempt to evade the bullets fired during the drive-by.

While Ross has not made a public statement about the shooting, Pusha T has confirmed that the Miami rapper is doing well and "layin' back" at home.

Good to know. Ross has apparently kept a low profile in the days following the incident, and is supposedly being protected with 24-hour security.

The woman who called 911 to report that Rick Ross was being shot at was apparently pretty scared, which is understandable, given the stray bullets and all.

In fact, the Rick Ross 911 call is decidedly shorter than most because she hung up in mid-call, fearing the gunmen were turning around to fire again.

The call (and Rick Ross shooting) took place early Monday morning from a restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. The rapper tried to flee in his Rolls-Royce.

A woman inside of a nearby restaurant called 911 in a panic and reported amid the gunfire, "I just heard a bunch of gunshots go off ... and a car sped by."

Rapper Rick Ross has released a remixed track following the drive-by shooting attempt on his life, while at least one rival implied that the incident was staged.

Though accounts of the Rick Ross drive-by vary and he has yet to comment on the incident, the self-proclaimed “Boss” did what he does best: Rap.

“I can’t believe I’m alive,” he said, dropping a rhyme about his near-death experience into a recording by, Kendrick Lamar, titled "B---- Don’t Kill my Vibe."

Meanwhile, police have released edited 911 calls placed when the gunfire broke out about 5 a.m. Monday on Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Details of this morning's Rick Ross shooting are still sketchy at this time, and it's not like the rapper hasn't been in this situation before. So who tried to kill him?

Police in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., are gathering surveillance footage from the scene where Ross crashed his car after being targeted in a drive-by shooting.

While driving with his girlfriend Shateria L. Moragne-el, Ross smashed his Rolls-Royce into an apartment building in attempt to flee from bullets fired at him.

Security cameras at a building across the street were rolling this morning, and police are hoping they may get a glimpse at the shooter and/or the vehicle.

If Rick Ross is feeling threatened by a Chicago gang, he's putting on a good front.

Following Gangster Disciples' apparent Rick Ross death threat on YouTube, he nixed the remaining dates on a U.S. tour with his Maybach Music Group.

Gang members instructed Ross to "cut a check" to GD kingpin Larry Hoover, like now, or else, but Ross said in an interview that this didn't faze him one bit.

"Ricky Ross is a boss. You can't cancel a Ricky Ross show without Ricky Ross' permission," he said, referring to himself in the third-person for some reason.

Rick Ross says he's not hiding from gang members who made death threats against him, despite a video that went viral a few weeks ago and put him on notice.

Self-proclaimed members of Chicago-based Gangster Disciples demanded, on YouTube, that Rick Ross cut a check for GD founder Larry Hoover ... or else.

Rick Ross then canceled the remaining dates on his tour.

The Chicago Police Department took the video seriously enough to launch an investigation into the matter, but no arrests have been made as of this post.

Two separate brawls at 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards have dominated news for the past two days, with rumors, controversy, fists and possibly even bullets flying.

Here's a rundown of what went down, and what's unproven:

1. The fight between Rick Ross and Young Jeezy did take place, with pushing and shoving backstage.

2. The incident with Gunplay and 50 Cent involved 50's entourage, not 50. There was pepper spray involved, with the former allegedly taken down "by a cop."
