Today in the lives of hip hop stars: Rick Ross is having all sorts of car trouble as is the delightful Chris Brown. First up is Mr. Ross, who crashed his Rolls-Royce into an apartment building around 5 a.m. Monday. The rapper was apparently trying to flee from an attempted drive-by shooting in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Authorities say unknown suspects fled before police arrived and that Ross and his companion were unharmed. That apartment building and Rolls — not so much.
Also on Monday but on a different coast, Chris Brown and Frank Ocean were reportedly at the center of a brawl outside a Los Angeles recording studio. The dispute erupted over a parking spot, with members of both men’s entourages kicking off the fight. Brown, no stranger to brawls, left the scene before police arrived, though Ocean and his team stuck around to give a statement. Because of that, police are classifying Ocean as “the victim,” a law enforcement source tells the website. Ocean took to Twitter to address the fight, posting, “got jumped by Chris and a couple guys. I only wish [his dog] Everest was there. Cut my finger now I can’t play with two hands at the Grammys.”
Ha. I love how Brown likes to think of himself as the bad boy of R&B — and he gets into a fight over a parking spot. His street cred is seriously impressive.
