News: Rick Ross Returns To Twitter, Ignores 50 Cent Disses
Thursday, Jan 31, 2013 7:32PM
Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross is slowly but surely returning to his regular routines, briefly coming back onto Twitter just days after dodging gunfire in Florida.
Although Ricky Rozay did not update fans on his current condition, he did boast about new Reebok sneakers and congratulated a local boutique.
Rick Ross has re-emerged on Twitter after what appears to be an attempt to murder the hip-hop star in Florida earlier this week, but the heavyset rapper did not directly address his brush with death early Monday morning. Rick Ross had been mostly silent on the microblogging service save for a re-tweet yesterday, but the rapper was back today, sending two tweets about upcoming releases -- and pointedly ignoring the static from fellow rapper 50 Cent, who has been mercilessly mocking Ross since the shooting. (As you may recall, 50 Cent himself is a survivor of multiple gunshots, so we imagine shots that don't even hit the car, much less Ross himself, seem far less scary.) (Inquisitr)
Ross' tweets come just a few days after rap foe 50 Cent unloaded a fury of disses his way.
"Nah they shot in the air then he drove into a building"@TauThabiso:@50cent Fif officer Ricky got shot?"," Fif tweeted January 29th.
"Man they miss the whole f#cking car were they do that at ?SMSaudio"
"ok it was just firecrackers but who ever lit them in trouble cause the man damn near had a heart attack #SMSAudio" (50 Cent's Twitter)
An eyewitness' 911 frantic call audio from Monday's shooting has already surfaced online.
The call was made early Monday morning from a restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida ... while the rapper was trying to speed away from the shooter in his Rolls-Royce. A woman inside of a nearby restaurant called 911 in a panic and reported, "I just heard a bunch of gunshots go off ... and a car sped by." The caller then interrupted the operator and said, "Oh my god, they're turning around and coming back ... I'm hanging up." When the operator tried to ask more questions about the situation -- the caller shot back, "They're coming back ... I'm hiding." The caller then hangs up the phone. Ross eventually crashed his car into a nearby apartment building. So far, the cops have not made any arrests in the case. (TMZ)
New reports claim Ross has hired 24-hour security following what took place.
After narrowly escaping bullets from a drive-by shooting in Ft. Lauderdale, the rapper has hired armed personal bodyguards to protect him 24/7! Rick Ross was the target of a drive-by shooting outside Miami on Jan. 28, and he ended up crashing his Rolls-Royce to escape the gunfire. Even though the shooter has not been identified, the rapper had been threatened by a street ganga called Gangsta Disciples for weeks before the dangerous attack. As a hip-hop artist, Rick had armed security for big events such as concerts and public appearances, but in the wake of the drive-by shooting, he has decided to have armed bodyguards 24/7.
