Rick Ross Shooting: A Twitter Timeline
Forget a big booty ho. All Rick Ross wants for his birthday are some goddamn answers.
The b-day Bawse -- Ross turns 37 today -- and an unidentified female companion were allegedly heading east on Las Olas Boulevard at around 5 a.m. this morning near 15th Avenue in Fort Lauderdale, when an assailant opened fire on Rozay's Rolls Royce.
Not a single bullet struck the six-foot, 300-plus pound MC or his date.
Little else is known about the shooting, but Twitter can help shed some light.
Check out Crossfade's Twitter timeline of the events leading up to the apparent assassination attempt on Ross after the cut.

Shortly after midnight, Ross tweets the first of several simple messages about his 37th birthday party at LIV.

A few minutes later, Ross lights a blunt.
3 blunts lit a once-- Mastermind (@rickyrozay) January 28, 2013
Less than half an hour passes before Ross admits to smoking at least three blunts in the midnight hour.
Ross' final tweet of the night suggests two things: (a) he's likely stoned and (b) his would-be assailants have a motive -- money.
