Rapper Rick Ross crashes car into building after shooting: report

Source: Chicago Tribune

A Rolls-Royce owned by rapper Rick Ross smashed into a building in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., early today after it was the target of gunfire, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported.

A woman who woke up to the sounds of a car crashing into her apartment building after police were called about reports of gunfire said Ross was one of two people inside the vehicle, according to one report.

Beth Balk, a waitress at the nearby Floridian Restaurant, told the Sun Sentinel she was asleep on the couch when she heard the crash, saw a silver Rolls Royce up against her building and looked outside to see a man and a woman who appeared to be stunned.

Balk was shown a picture of the rapper and said, "Yes, that's definitely the guy."

4. Or a case of the 'wrong' Rick Ross?

http://www.democraticunderground.com/10022194106

Key cocaine dealer in Poppy Bush's IranContra ops applauds choice of John Kerry for SoS

Quite a bit of essential US history in this piece that most establishment news media has refused to touch the last 20 years. After reading this, some of you will have greater understanding of why the corporate media has always shown a concerted effort to marginalize Kerry publicly.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/rick-ross/how-john-kerry-exposed-th_b_2469665.html

<<
Long forgotten today is the resolve Kerry had to have to almost singularly stand up to the Reagan & Bush administration. All despite the McCarthyesqe efforts used to make him seem crazed for his ground breaking investigation.

-Though John Kerry's early warnings about White House-aided Contra gunrunning had proved out, his accusations about Contra drug smuggling would continue to be rejected by much of the press corps as going too far.

On Jan. 21, 1987, the conservative Washington Times attacked Kerry's Contra-drug investigation again; his alleged offense this time was obstructing justice because his probe was supposedly interfering with the Reagan administration's determination to get at the truth. "Kerry's staffers damaged FBI probe," the Times headline read. Congressional investigators for Sen. John Kerry severely damaged a federal drug investigation last summer by interfering with a witness while pursuing allegations of drug smuggling by the Nicaraguan resistance. The drift of the article made Kerry out to be something of a dupe. His Contra-cocaine witnesses were depicted as simply convicts trying to get lighter prison sentences by embroidering false allegations onto the Iran-Contra scandal. But the information in the Times story was patently untrue. The AP Contra-cocaine story had run in December 1985, almost a year before the Iran-Contra story broke. -- Salon.com

Made into a pariah much like Gary Webb, the reporter that wrote Dark Alliance on the Iran Contra in 1996, people simply wanted it all to go away because within Kerry's accusation was a darker reality than discovered in any international relations scandal in American History. "Kerry wanted to get to the bottom of something so dark,... Nobody could imagine it was so dark." Miami-based federal public defender John Mattes told Salon. The possibility the United States government might be involved in the cocaine trade, while at the same time it was writing some of the harshest known sentences in the world if its citizens sold those same drugs once they arrived to shore.

7. time for bulletproof glass?

"It's not about flossin' or talking tough on a radio station. Rick ought to know that he is not dealing with no punks. Beef that is not squashed can get out of hand. Tupac and Biggie proved that.""

And YouTube has been so busy banning copyrighted music and Daily Show skits that they didn't notice this was going on?

15. Rick Ross Returns To Twitter, Ignores 50 Cent Disses

Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross is slowly but surely returning to his regular routines...just days after dodging gunfire in Florida...

...(R)ap 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.

"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)

New reports claim Ross has hired 24-hour security following what took place...

Ross (which he is now pronouncing Ro-ZAY) is a Grammy Award nominee -- the ceremony is Feb. 10. Hope there won't be any trouble.

16. The 2013 Grammys have come and gone -- Rick didn't win

but did live to tell about it:

Rick Ross appeared at the 2013 Grammy Awards showing no ill affects of narrowly escaping a near-death assassination attempt and car accident on January 28.

"(There are0 no suspects and we not here to speculate on any suspects," Ross told MTV News on the red carpet. "I'm just staying positive, I'm moving forward and I'm just staying on top of my game." That doesn't mean he's taking the botched hit lightly.

"You most definitely gotta make some adjustments," he said. "But at the same time I'mma live my life and I'mma do what I love to do, and that's make music."

17. Here's the latest on the Gangster Disciples

2 charged with murder in Hadiya Pendleton slaying

...Hours after Hadiya's funeral, attended by first lady Michelle Obama, police stopped...Michael Ward, 18, and Kenneth Williams, 20...as they were on their way...to a friend's birthday celebration at a strip club...(They) are charged with first-degree murder, attempted murder and aggravated battery with a firearm in the attack...

Ward...told police the shooting was in retaliation for Williams getting wounded last July...(Williams) refused to sign a complaint against those suspected in the attack...Williams and Ward targeted Hadiya and other teens in the park Jan. 29 because they believed, mistakenly, they were members of the gang responsible for the shooting...

While police and neighbors have generally described Harsh Park and its immediate surroundings as safe, there has been an internal gang conflict brewing in the area between factions of the Gangster Disciples, police said...Ward and Williams are members of the Gangster Disciples, sources said...
