Rick Ross Calls Aurora, Colorado Shootings "Senseless"

Rick Ross weighs in on the tragedy that took place last week in Aurora, Colorado.

Folloiwng the tragic shooting last week at an Aurora, Colorado movie theater, several members of the Hip Hop community have spoken out on the incident. Rick Ross is the latest to chime in, speaking with 106 KMEL about how the murders were “senseless” and why the killer, James Holmes, might have been acting dazed in court as part of his defense.

“You know, first and foremost, I send my condolences out to the family members of the victims. It’s just so senseless,” he said. “You think you’re in the movie, and as I watched him sitting in the courtroom, now he dizzy. Now he dazed. With all the pictures of him and everything that was leading up to the event, he’s smiling and this and that. Now you dazed. Don’t be dazed now. We need you to be focused when this comes down on you, because that was senseless. It’s unfortunate. Don’t be blinkin’ and all that. It could be one of his approaches to his defense, like he ain’t know what was going on. But that ain’t gon’ help you on this one.”

    A rapper who anyone outside of the Hip-Hop fanbase would not give a single shit about, gives his opinion on something which doesn't concern him in any way. Very relevant indeed.

    I cannot believe the irony of this article, cannot believe it. It makes me sick. This is everything that is wrong with Hip Hop. Rick Ross' take on the shooting, I couldn't care less, I'd rather watch a Donkey throw up. Lupe Fiasco's take on the shooting is something I'd like to hear.

    "hum the main topic of this article is rick ross and you ... come up with nas ?" Cause fools like you are fucking hypocrites. Nas could say he supports international terrosism, and you would call him brilliant, telling the world for the ten billionth time how great Illmatic was, but anything Ross related, you spew this hilarious nonsense.

    "how all of a sudden you feel that a mass shooting in a move theater is "senseless"?" I'm not Rick Ross's biggest fan, but he gave his take on a shooting. That's all. His lyrics in song have no relevance in this debate. What if Pac was alive and chimed in? Would the same people lash out at him because in countless songs he talked about "Thug Life", and how you don't fuck with him?

    officer ricky is a dumbass his own people that he sold his soul to are the ones that did this. this was all plotted by the government to reinforce the law there trying to pass where every american citizen has to turn in there weapon, just for homeland security. so rick ross you knew from the git go what the illuminati is up to. so shut yo fat double quarter pounder ass up!

    To all you bitches, junkies, and all that shit, I'll say something: Rick Ross is useless. FUCKING USELESS. This nigga is trash. He's nothing, a fucking wannabe, a goddamn cop that pretends to be a druglord. People should despise this bitch. He doesn't deserve to live.

    What I don't get is that Rick Ross has always flooded his lyrics with the consequences of crossing him, or getting on his bad said and it's NEVER a diss message on twitter or facebook, it's him talking about being the "trigger man" or paying someone in marijuana to kill his enemies or opponents. how all of a sudden you feel that a mass shooting in a move theater is "senseless"? am I missing something here or his response is "senseless"?

    fat piece of shit doesnt have a say in this. his shit doesnt even make sense.

  • ac

    This is news? when ross or anyone else in the public eye says that the shooter is admirable and should be commended then you can fucking report on it, seriously. So 99% of the population think it was senseless, we don't neet confirmation from rozay on this. Sorry DX ya'll need to write about somethin that isn't bullshit, this article is stupid

  • FuKKK RiKKK Ross

    You wanna know what's senseless??? A cop acting like a druglord.

  • trooth

    ok let me educate you hipsters, trolls, trapstars, and suburban internet wankstas. He's acting dazed because he's suffering from mania. He probably hasn't slept for days and this is the signs of getting no sleep and dealing with a tremendous amount of stress. Either way it doesn't matter this man is not getting off and he wil be in jail for life if not executed. which he should be because we (well the people who work and don't depend on the state for money) are paying for this fuck to live ie taxes. And on a final note who gives a fuck what Rick Ross thinks. Im pretty sure its safe to say whoever you interview is gonna say this is a tragedy.

    "It doesn't make any sense that a CO with a clean background would purposely put out a fake ass image" What's the difference if an ex cop became an actor. Does that mean his image is bullshit? Shut the fuck up you little whiny faggot. Don't be mad cause Ross is making bank while you bounce checks at Walmart.

  • SATX

    This fat copycat's whole career is senseless! This pig stole suge knight, and Freeways style, story, and persona!

  • EDDIETHEGERBAL

    But Rick Ross, you talk about killing and shooting and drugs in your songs.

    • Com

      Ross still glorifies killing. It's hypocritical as shit to denounce that man, while he's actively making music about criminal activity.

    • Anonymous

      Ross talks it. This guy actually did it. That and ross music has never talked about killing children but that guy did. Ross music has never said im going into a movie theatre full of happy people just to shoot and kill. But this guy did. Dont let your dislike for ross cloud your judgement to where you cant hear what hes saying

  • BlazeDatIshUp

    Yep it is senseless, but your whole fake thug, fake drug dealer image is senseless too. It doesn't make any sense that a CO with a clean background would purposely put out a fake ass image to loot up and when the person who is the real Rick Ross tries to sue the courts say he can't stop your bitch ass from using his name. Even if the man wants to help cleanup the streets that he once did criminal activity on, he can't, so before this fool says something is senseless he should stop being a fake bitch.

    Also love to hear the ignorant Maybach Music's thoughts on world events. He gave great insight here....5 times saying dazed, his fake "gangster" act is so over to the top that he can't just speak like a normal individual. Everything has to be over done, because it's "The Baaaaaaawse" AKA Officer Ricky!

    agreed. He knew exactly what he was doing. His apt was boobie trapped. Hed been getting guns over a period of months. That shit was premeditated. Fuck outa here with that insanity plea btw i bet someone is still gonna diss Ross on this post because people nowadays care more about the person speaking than what the person is saying.
