Rick Ross Breaks Silence On Shooting, Says He's "Staying Positive" & "Moving Forward"

Rick Ross finally speaks about his shooting, saying that he's going to continue to live his life and do what he loves to do.

Although he has remained quiet throughout the controversy surrounding his recent shooting incident, Rick Ross has finally broken his silence. Ross spoke with MTV's Sway Calloway, explaining that he's "staying positive" and "moving forward." 

"[There are] no suspects and we not here to speculate on any suspects," he shared on Grammy night regarding his shooting. "I'm just staying positive, I'm moving forward and I'm just staying on top of my game."

He also acknowledged that his life has been altered by the shooting but that he hopes to keep doing what he loves.

"You most definitely gotta make some adjustments, but at the same time I'ma live my life and I'ma do what I love to do, and that's make music," he noted.

According to Ross, his focus is on music. He explained that MMG has much to look forward to in 2013.  

"MMG, we got the biggest releases of this year coming so that's my focus. Mastermind this year, Wale coming, Stalley coming, Omarion coming — the team coming. We working."

Late last month, Rick Ross reportedly crashed his Rolls Royce while escaping a shooting. The interview can be seen below.

    "Nas didn't win a Grammy, we know this. How does that information validate you?" That's the thing. I don't need validation. I give my opinion regardless of who agrees or not.

    "nas been in the game for over 20 years he has nothing to prove" He still acts like he has something to prove. If Nas would just step his production up a bit, I wouldn't trash him. Summer on Smash was worse than even Diced Pineapples.

      Dude you've gone from a Drake article to a Ross one speaking about Nas. Nas didn't win a Grammy, we know this. How does that information validate you? I enjoyed LIG's R&B more than I did TC's R&B and congrats to them both for being considered for their art. Now why are YOU choosing sides and trashing losers?

    "his buzz was at its peak for GFID and it barely went gold" Gold is gold, and copper is copper. LIG went copper.

  • Jiggaman

    Rozay, Jigga and Baby are role models for future rappers. Ross will recover then release a platinum album in the form of Mastermind. The shooters will die this year, I guarantee that.

  • Art Brooks

    Maybe it was Shyne who put the greenlight on Ross. And the shooter learned to shoot from Shyne...

  • Ricky False The Cop

    Omarion = Flop, Wale = Flop, Stalley = Double Wood, Meek Mill = Decent Sales, Ricky False = Fake Wannabe Thug drug dealer that will have a bullet in his brain by the end of 2013. How is MMG winning again sum1 remind me. FAAAWWWWWLSEEE!!!

      A "True Hip-hop" fan is not a fan of Rick Ross or almost any post 2005 artists

      none of them have as much money as you think, ross is really the only one who might be set for life meek mill and wale gonna be broke in 5 years

    • ryan

      I'm not a big fan of MMG or Rick Ross but people just sound dumb making fun of them honestly. They really don't care all that much about "haters" or people who make d-bag comments. At the end of the Day They have enough Money for 5,6,etc. Lifetimes. Rarely do these "internet gangsters" leave a comment that supports something. A True Fan supports Hip-Hop not talk shit about it.

    Stalley is never dropping....He's a good rapper but not unique or interesting enough to sell records. He's MMG's Tony Yayo.

    Most of Miami is littered with old, rundown shops, so there's a good chance there were no cameras. And even if there were witnesses, do you really think they're going to tell the police or media who let off the shots?

    Officer Ross better lay low until they catch Christopher Dorner. That dude is going all rambo on the police. Ross is a high value target.
