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.

Do you think that your children are the violent ones? It is not your children that are violent; they were grown up in a violent world that has committed violence against them, their parents and their grandparents! Are you mad because there are too many guns in your neighborhood? Which one of you manufactures them? You don't even manufacture toilet paper, so if the guns are here, who put them here? And for what purpose? How are we going to stop violence among the children, when a liar can be a president and put the whole nation at war, killing innocent people on the basis of a lie? The slaughter of people in Iraq, Afghanistan; in Hiroshima, Nagasaki—and all over the world: The enemy is making new weapons of mass destruction every day that they try out on the children of the people in Gaza; in Afghanistan! But you are so busy focusing on the violence in your streets that you are blind to the violence that is being promoted all over the world in America's name!

Why bring up Obama when there's a shooting involving a black man? Might as well bring up Romney everytime a whitw shoots up a theatre or school. Those Whites really kill in some big numbers!

It's should be noted that Rick Ross has been threatened by a gang that has factions all across the nation. He was warned about some stuff he do that they didnt like. He has cancelled concerts because of this.
