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. #SMSaudio

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.

  • coming from a man who lied about getting shot 9 times ( 50 only got hit 3 times)

    Really Fiddy? Someone almost getting killed is funny to you, huh? Wonder if getting filled with bullet holes 9 times was somehow a fun experience for you. So, let me get this straight. You brag that you ride around in “Obama level 6 type of bullet and bomb proofed vehicles” Not because you’re tough, but because you know first hand how painful and terrifying it is to be shot. You of all people found it humorous to state that since you saw no bullet holes in the car-(probably because you got the photo from what ever sub-par online source you didn’t fact check)-you thought you made a case. Throwing that type of shade makes you look like a “Real Housewife”. Do us all a favor, and keep your stroke- victim -sounding mouth closed. Besides, don’t you have some refunds that you need to be shelling out for “Before I Self Destruct”?

    No wonder 50 has been shot at so many times, he’s always drumming up silly ish like this. He lost my respect when he made a certain comments about Vivica that was completely unnecessary for public ears. This is right up his alley and I hope Rick Ross doesn’t stoop to his level this time either.

    50 is B—-h! He thinks everything is a joke. He tried to beef w/ Rick Ross awhile back by putting out videos of him chilling w/ Ross kids & their mother, but when Ross didn’t feed into it he got real quiet. He’s so immature, always looking for attention. Sit down somewhere & take Frank Ocean w/ you!…I saw a video where they showed the officers taking pics of the bullet casings on the street. A bullet hit one of the buildings. Crashing into that building could have caused him his life, his girlfriends life, or any other bystander, i don’t think it was staged. 50, you are the only one to do things for attention

  • I wouldn’t be suprised if 50 staged it…

  • bluekissess

    I wouldn’t be surprised if it was staged. He’s been lying about his lifestyle since the beginning. 50 cent probably knows more about this than the cops. *Sigh*

    • kierah

      Per TMZ (and yeah I believe TMZ over the Daily Mail), NO bullets hit the car!! That incrediBULL!
