Rick Ross's Birthday Affair at LIV Miami, Turning 37 Like a Motherf#$%ing Bawse

Rick Ross is having a party!

The Grammy-nominated Maybach Music Group guru and Wingstop franchisee will attend Sunday service at LIV, celebrating his 37th birthday with a Bawse party.

Unlike normal folks' birthdays, where overindulging on ice-cream cake and Wild Turkey is both the highlight and sad reality check that your life's accomplishments thus far are embarrassingly sub par, Rozay's soiree will almost certainly not suck.

Big homie's connected. So the guest list's gonna be a who's who of celebrity A-listers and "big booty hos."

But there's a dilemma ... What do you get a pimp with a "condo on Park Ave, the mansion in Boca, 20 bedrooms [whose] shit bigger than Oprah's?"

UPDATE After his birthday party, Rick Ross was the target of a shooting in Fort Lauderdale, crashing his Rolls Royce.

UPDATE #2 Fort Lauderdale police have confirmed that Rick Ross's passenger was his girlfriend Shateria L. Moragne-el.

UPDATE #3 50 Cent has called Rick Ross a "Fat Boy" and suggested the early-morning shooting "looks staged."

UPDATE #4 Rick Ross has dropped his post-shooting track, rappping: "Sometimes I look in the mirror, I can't believe I'm alive."

UPDATE #5 Investigating the Rick Ross shooting, Fort Lauderdale police are sifting though surveillance video, but they're not discussing suspects.

UPDATE #6 In the wake of the shooting, Rick Ross has hired a 24-hour armed security team.

UPDATE #7 Today, the City of Fort Lauderdale Police Department released 911 calls from the Rick Ross shooting.

Last year, Dr. Dre outdid everybody when he presented Ross with a $100,000 wristwatch.

The custom Hublot was the size of friggin' Alfa Romero. It would've been loose around our thigh and cost more than 10 of our cars.

Then there are the gifts that Rozay's given himself, everything from custom kicks to original artwork to a Hermes ashtray littered with blunt roaches.

Big homie's got everything. So do y'all have any suggestions on how to gift shop for the Bawse?
