Meek Mill & Wale speak about the Officer Rick Ross shooting
Meek Mill appeared on 107.9?s The Q Deezy Show this week. When asked how Ross was doing after the shooting the Philadelphia native responded, “People get shot at everyday.” He went on to say, “He ain’t get shot. He definitely cool.” Meek’s labelmate Wale seemed to take a more serious tone when speaking to Rashan Ali of Streetz 94.5 in Atlanta. Ali asked the DMV rapper how he felt about rumors that the shooting was staged for publicity. “I think the media is perpetuating a lot of things…I had to unfollow a rack of people on Twitter when that was happening, ” said Wale. “It’s a joke to ya’ll cause ya’ll see somebody on t.v. everyday. But what if that’s your friend? Cause that’s my friend…I just lost one of my brothers so I don’t even play around with that stuff.” 50 Cent sparked speculation that the entire shooting was fabricated when the G-Unit leader uploaded a picture of a car on his instagram with the caption, “Hahaha fat boy hit the building? lol it looks staged to me. No hole’s in da car.” Fort Lauderdale police did confirm that Ross’ Rolls-Royce was shot at 18 times, before he crashed the vehicle into a building. The car was not hit by any bullets. Ross had been receiving public threats from members of the Gangster Disciples street gang from throughout the country, including Florida, for several months. While Ross refused to answer any questions from the photographer, it was the first time he had been seen in public since the shooting. He has yet to make a public comment about the incident.
