Rick Ross smashed his Rolls-Royce into a building in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida early this morning ... while trying to escape from a gunman who opened fire on the car ... this according to police.  

Ross was not shot during the incident -- nor was a female who was also inside the car.

According to local reports, "dozens" of shots were fired at the vehicle around 5AM -- none of which hit the Rolls. Several buildings in the area WERE struck by gunfire.

Cops say another vehicle had pulled up next to the Rolls ... when someone inside opened fire on Ross' car.

Ross' Rolls reportedly crashed into a building while trying to speed away from the gunfire.

It's only a matter of time Rick. You want to live that baddazz thug loudmouth life, someone is gonna call you on it. Might just be a "stan" from some other rapper who you're talking ish about. Only takes one idiot and one bullet to end your life. Keep talking smack and sooner or later someone out there who hates you will get you.

Life in the fast lane. I don't understand how they missed him if he wrecked his car. He's very lucky this person was not a good shot.

Rick Ross don't be a Fat Fool you have enough money to pick any corner of the globe and go there removing yourself from the B.S. that you brought on yourself. When them Chicago GD's say they gone come see about you; that means not even in your home town are you safe... Matter fact that's how they send the loudest message!

Multiple shots and no hits on the RR. Stop lying to the police. It's a crime. You lost control; and crashed your car.
