Rapper Rick Ross has released a remixed track following the drive-by shooting attempt on his life, while at least one rival implied that the incident was staged.
Though accounts of the Rick Ross drive-by vary and he has yet to comment on the incident, the self-proclaimed “Boss” did what he does best: Rap.
“I can’t believe I’m alive,” he said, dropping a rhyme about his near-death experience into a recording by, Kendrick Lamar, titled "B---- Don’t Kill my Vibe."
Meanwhile, police have released edited 911 calls placed when the gunfire broke out about 5 a.m. Monday on Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
Bullets pierced the windows of nearby businesses, as Ross crashed Rolls-Royce into the front door of an apartment building amid a hail of bullets.
Ross (real name William L. Roberts II), posted a link to a news story about the shooting on his Facebook page, but his publicist did not return calls.
Social-media sites and users, however, were abuzz about the incident, and there was some skepticism that the Rick Ross shooting was even a real thing.
Some tweeters even theorized that the gunfire was staged to help boost his “street cred,” which has been a source of contention in the rap community.
The timing also raised eyebrows, coming just before the Grammy Awards, where Ross is nominated for Best Rap Album
50 Cent, who knows something about street violence and feuding with Rick Ross, declared the shooting a hoax, tweeting, “lol it looks staged to me.”
Ross has also feuded with fellow rappers such as Young Jeezy, and reportedly received death threats from a group called the Gangster Disciples.
It seems unlikely that Rick Ross would stage an attempt on his life when he has plenty of real enemies/cred already, but that's the Internet for you.
There are whole Sandy Hook conspiracy groups, so by comparison Ross' small-scale effort to burnish his hardness wouldn't be too hard to pull off.

Are you tired of having a perfect take be messed up by your parents or friends opening your door?
Or by loud/noisy neighbors, or maybe you need to be more quiet in your apartment complex. Or maybe you have a home studio but people will take you more serious with a nice "vocal booth".
Lets face it, YOU NEED A VOCAL BOOTH if you have your own recording studio set up!
Here are my reasons:
-Brings more clients in to my studio
-Easy mixing and equalizing the frequencies
-Much smoother sessions
-People can chat away when in the studio with that client
I have come to find that every artist will bring a "buddy" when recording, so now that person can feel free to make a bit of noise without having to re-do a take!
I built this vocal booth with a budget of $500, everything you see cost just about that!
You can build this in as little as 1 week and have a professional recording isolation booth set up in your home!

Monday-Follow up to 350 people on 50's list
Keep this routine going for as long as you want, the more you do this the more followers so its up to you on what you get in return. I found that 4 out of 15 followed me back, and not immediately.
