Who Shot at Rick Ross?

Earlier today, Broward/Palm Beach New Times' news wing reported that The Teflon Don himself, Rick Ross, was the target of a gangsta-as-fuck drive-by-shooting attempt, reminiscent of the infamous killings from the golden age of rapper assassinations.

However, unlike Biggie and Pac, The Bawse - and his shawty, Shateria L. Moragne-el - got away.

Ft. Lauderdale police have officially confirmed that William L. Roberts - a.k.a. Ricky Muthafuckin' Rozay - was the behind the wheel of his Rolls Royce when a vehicle pulled up alongside and opened fire. Ross crashed into a building attempting in the process of successfully escaping the attack. Ross had been celebrating his 37th birthday at LIV Sunday night.

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.)
