Recently there was an attempt on Rapper’s Rick Ross’s life, in which a car pulled up next to his car and began shooting. The Maybach Music Group Boss was able to escape the attack, but he did wreck his Roll Royce Phantom. The incident spurred a frenzy of attention. Ross’ longtime rival, 50 Cent, weighed in by saying that he felt like the entire thing was staged.

One of Ross’s artists and friends, Wale, says that he believes that the media is perpetuating the issue. He is also upset that people find the incident laughable.

“I think everything, the whole thing, has been blown up,” he said in an interview with 94.5. “I think the media is perpetuating a lot of things. God forbid, if something happens to anybody, they’re gonna be playing people’s records all day.”

Wale also said that he had to resort to unfollowing people on Twitter because of the mean thing that were being said.

“It’s a joke to y’all because y’all see him on TV every day but what if that was your friend? That’s my friend. I was talking to him last night about the football game. So, what y’all think is a joke is somebody’s health. I know his children. God forbid something happens. And I just lost one of my brothers so I don’t even play around with that stuff. I don’t play.”
