Witnesses told local television reporters in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. that someone fired several rounds at a Rolls-Royce carrying the rapper Rick Ross, causing the car to crash into a building.

No one was injured in the incident, which happened at about 5 a.m. on Monday on Las Olas Boulevard and 15th Avenue, the Fort Lauderdale police said. “The occupants of the vehicle have asked for their information to be withheld from being released,” a spokeswoman for the Fort Lauderdale Police, Det. DeAnna Garcia, said. “They obviously, with everything that just took place, are fearful for their lives and their families lives.”

local television station reported that an employee of the nearby Floridian restaurant and the manager of one other business had seen Mr. Ross and an unidentified woman get out of the vehicle after the crash.

The police said multiple shots were fired at the car, causing it to swerve and crash into an apartment building at 1410 East Las Olas Boulevard.

As a rapper, Mr. Ross is known for cultivating a persona as a Miami street gangster. He founded the Maybach Music Group and his most recent album, “God Forgives, I Don’t” is nominated this year for the Grammy Award for Best Rap Album.

“Justice League” US Dollar Superhero Graffiti | Aslan-Sebastian Malik

In MAGAZINE on January 16, 2013 at 1:51 pm

Comic books have long been shown to be money-making pop culture properties, so Aslan-Sebastian Malik‘s artistic decision to turn Dead Presidents into Justice League superheroes isn’t entirely without precedent.

The Berlin artist/designer went berserk on $5, $10, $20, and $100 USD bills, rendering Grant, Lincoln Franklin, and Hamilton as BatmanSupermanGreen Lantern, and Wonder Woman. Defacing legal tender in such manner is illegal, but that’s besides the point, because in this case it’s undeniably awesome.

That said, it doesn’t seem to be for sale (yet), so for now enjoy our gallery below, then head to Malik’s website to dig more of his work.

“Not only is it an honor to be able to stand here 20 years after our very first release in 1993 — Xscape’s #1 single ‘Just Kickin It‘ – but it’s truly an achievement that we can bring everyone back together to celebrate over two decades of music excellence. We alsoacknowledge 1992 as the year when So So Def Productions introduced to the world Kris Kross, who had everyone JUMPING,” said Dupri.


“Atlanta has a thriving music industry, and So So Def Recordings has been an important part of that legacy for the past two decades,” said Mayor Kasim Reed. “This milestone is another example of why Atlanta is the entertainment capital of the Southeast. I am pleased that So So Def has called our great city home for 20 years, and I wish the company continued success for many more years to come.”


“As we acknowledge Jermaine Dupri’s many years of excellence in the music and entertainment business, I am so proud of him, his So So Def Recordings label and all the So So Def artists for their individual dedication, history making and record book status,” said Michael Mauldin. “So So Def Recordings will forever and a day be recognized as a prominent leader and contributor to the music and entertainment business throughout the world and we are grateful to have done so in our home city of Atlanta, Georgia. We are proud to call Atlanta the home of So So Def.”
