50 Cent reckons Ross drive-by a set up

50 Cent

50 Cent has accused rival rapper Rick Ross of staging the drive-by shooting that occurred in Florida earlier this week. As previously reported, Ross was seemingly targeted by gunmen as he drove in his Rolls Royce with his girlfriend Shateria L Moragne-el near his home in Fort Lauderdale.

Despite initial reports that the rapper’s car had been hit, and that the attack had cause Ross to crash the vehicle into a wall, it subsequently transpired that Ross, Moragne-el and the Rolls all escaped pretty much unscathed. Though it was reported that windows of nearby buildings had been smashed by bullets, and photos showed that the Rolls had swerved into some bushes.

However, the ever sympathetic 50 Cent reckons the lack of bullet holes in his rival’s car (not to mention in his rival) probably means the whole thing was a PR stunt to up Ross’s street cred. Tweeting on the incident, Fiddy said on Monday: “Hahaha fat boy hit the building? It looks staged to me. No holes in da car”.

Of course Fiddy and Ross have been beefing for some time.
