Because He Has Nothing Better To Do: 50 Cent Laughs Off Rick Ross Shooting, Says It Was Staged

Just when you think you want to like 50 Cent, he says something a little crass, a little ignorant or a little random to make you roll your eyes at him again.
While I’m not the biggest fan of Rick Ross and his penchant for rapping about a lifestyle that’s not really his own, I definitely wouldn’t be as bold to say that the man faked a drive-by shooting, in Miami, on his 37th birthday. Especially since he ended up driving into a building with his girlfriend in the car. But I guess when you’re a man who has been shot nine times, you get a kick out of questioning other people’s run-ins with gun violence.
The shooting occurred at 5 a.m. on Monday morning, when Ross and his girlfriend, Shateria Moragne-el, were fired upon as they were driving home after his b-day festivities. To flee, Ross wound up crashing his car into an apartment building. As news was going out about the incident, on Twitter yesterday, Fiddy played the me-thinks-I-smell-a-liar game with Rick, claiming that because the rapper’s car was photographed with no bullet holes in it, chances are, he faked the whole shooting to get attention and to play into the whole lifestyle of a drug dealing gangsta that Ross often raps about.
Hahaha fat boy hit the building?lol it looks staged to me. No hole’s in da car
hahaha that boy was spooked. I ride like OBAMA level 6 built proof, bomb proof,you already know.
After saying there were no holes in the car, 50 Cent posted a picture of Ross’ Rolls Royce after the incident, looking as though it had escaped all bullets that came its way. But pictures posted by different sites, including the Daily Mail, definitely show the car with bullet holes near the driver’s side. Plus, Fort Lauderdale police say that witnesses on the scene during the shooting claim that dozens of bullets were indeed fired at the car, but the rifle toting suspect luckily was having an off day and didn’t hit the rapper or Moragne-el.
Maybe, but I’m just the type of person who just hopes that individuals wouldn’t fake such a serious occurrence, but I think with all the threats that have been thrown his way from gangs, this shooting was the real deal. Either way, we’re just glad the big man and his lady are all right, and a little disturbed that Fiddy found the whole ordeal hahaha-worthy. But then again…this is 50 Cent we’re talking about.
