Who Shot at Rick Ross?
We have one question on our mind: WHODUNNIT?!
Nobody knows, but here are five people -- or four people and one apparition -- who've had some beef with Bawse.
(To be clear: New Times does not imply that any of this speculation is accurate.)
5. Young Jeezy
Jeezy and Ross have a longstanding feud that culminated in a mini-scuffle at the 2012 BET awards. However, something about "The Snowman" - maybe his finely manicured nails or expertly waxed eyebrows - tells us he wasn't behind the shooting.
The "Gucci Gucci" Tumblr sensation had choice words for the Bawse back in 2011. And you know what his response was? He called her "a dirty bitch" and said he hoped she got slapped by her bag-handler. A legitimate reason to try to kill a man?
3. Floyd Mayweather
Feuding with Twitter stars is one thing. But boxing and murder go together like, uh, rap music and murder. See also: Pulp Fiction, the murder of Tupac Shakur, and that time Mike Tyson bit off Evander Holyfield's ear. But Mayweather's feuds are known to be fake, like that one kerfuffle with 50 Cent.
2. Mafioso Hebrews
Ross pissed off every Jew with a glock when he released his Star of David adorned Black Bar Mitzvah mixtape. Did the so-called "Gangsta Disciples" have a hand in trying to take him out?
1. Tupac's Hologram
Maybe when Ross declared "Tupac Back" in the song "Tupac Back," he had no idea that he'd signed his own death warrant.
Of course the Twitterverse is going nuts with speculation. 50 Cent cracked that the incident "looks staged."
