Rick Ross got the worst birthday present ever this past Monday, as he almost lost his life in a drive-by shooting.


Theirs no doubt the rapper was getting a very serious warning.  Problem is, it may not be his last.  It's no secret that he's received several death threats in regard to him using the name of an alleged gang founder in his hit song "Blowing Money Fast".  There are several Youtube videos put out by alleged gang members telling Rick he will die unless he apologizes and cuts them a check.


Most recently, the rapper was forced to cancel shows in Alabama, Chicago and North Carolina after receiving death threats from the same alleged group.  Monday things came to a head and while driving down a Fort Lauderdale road, Rick Ross and his female passenger almost became the victims of a drive-by.  Of course no arrests have been made in the shooting and there are no suspects at this time.  In fact, the rapper has more than a few enemies, so the shooters may not of had any gang affiliation what so ever.  There's no guarantee that another attempt on his life wont happen again either.  Now, Rozay is hoping to be prepared if their happens to be a next time.  Get more details below with Tha Wire.
