Rick Ross has been noticeably absent from social media in the days following an attempt on his life, but when the MMG CEO returned to Twitter on Thursday (January 31), he was back to business as usual.
Rozay’s first move was retweeting his latest signee Rockie Fresh, who had simply shared the hashtag “#GodisGreat.” It’s clear that Ross is thankful that none of the two dozen or so bullets that were directed at his Rolls Royce early Monday morning actually connected. His second tweet was in promotion of Rebook Classics’ new Kamikaze II sneakers, which both he and DJ Khaled appear in ads for. “In stores Tomorrow!!” he wrote, along with an attached photo of the new red and black kicks.
While no one from Ross’ camp has given an official statement on the shooting incident, Pusha T told MTV News that he immediately reached out to check on his friend after hearing the news. “I don’t wanna hear about that with anybody. I definitely hit him up like, ‘Yo just let me know you’re OK,’” Push relayed, of his conversation with Rozay. “He was just like, ‘Yeah, he’s just layin’ back.’ That was enough for me,” Pusha said of the word he got back concerning Ross’ psyche after the shooting.
Ross had been celebrating his 37th birthday with friends like DJ Khaled, Diddy and French Montana at Club LIV in Miami on Sunday night, and later ate at the Floridian diner with his girlfriend in Fort Lauderdale. When the couple returned to their car around 5 a.m., several shots were fired in their direction, forcing them to crash into a nearby building.
After confirming that Ross was doing fine, Pusha T explained that it’s difficult for some artists to escape the lives they came from. “It’s tough out here as an artist and being in rap it’s like this is the only profession where you don’t really leave your core,” he said. “You don’t really leave your upbringing. You don’t really leave that behind; you stay in it lyrically and so on and so forth. So it’s like you can’t really get out of it, you can’t really get away from it. I don’t care how much money you have.”
Ross has reportedly increased his security detail since the unfortunate events of that morning.
