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.

Rick Ross Attends Pyor Moss

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.


As of now, no suspects have been identified and no arrests made.

So who tried to take out Rick Ross? It could be anyone … especially given the hip-hop figure’s propensity for trouble. In the past five years alone:

  • YouTube entertainer DJ Vlad sued Ross for assault and battery; Vlad claimed Ross organized an ambush of him at the 2008 Ozone Awards.
  • Ross started an ongoing feud with rapper 50 Cent because he supposedly “looked at him the wrong way” at the BET Awards.
  • One-time drug kingpin “Freeway” Ricky Ross sued Rick Ross for using his name, filing a copyright infringement lawsuit in Federal Court.
  • A body of a known armed robbery convict and auto thief, identified as Gregory Paul Nesbitt, was found outside of Ross’ house in 2012.
  • Shots were fired during his fight with Young Jeezy at the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards, an incident that was partially caught on video.
  • Most recently, and perhaps most relevantly, Ross received a death threat from Gangster Disciples, a Chicago gang, earlier this winter.

Who do you think was behind the Rick Ross shooting?
