Cops say neither party suffered any injuries. The suspects fled from the scene before cops arrived on scene.

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.

Damn! They MISSED him! That's what happens when you hold a gun sideways. Get to the range instead of an alley and learn to shoop properly!

I'm switching to Country Music. About the only drama they have is cheating, drinking, and keeping the dog from being hit by a drunk cheat.

It's a crime to lie to the police. Multiple shots and no hits on the RR; come on. Stop lying to the cops.

Must be a horrible shot if they can't even hit the car when they are right next to it. Is this called getting street credit?

My guess is if its real there's a reason why they shot at him, he either did something or ran his mouth, the only way I'm buying they never hit the car with bullet is if its bulletproof or it was just the driver and he's trying to shoot and drive at the same time, the rolls is slow probably like Rick Ross trying to run from somebody so it won't move fast enough to be a getaway car so unless they had a slower car which I doubt there's no way 1 bullet wouldn't have caught that big vehicle somewhere unless the guy was driving and shooting at the same time. Ain't no one escaping no one in a Roll's so that thing would have caught bullets easily, apparantly it don't handle to good reaching high speed neither cause it crashed. Rick's car is a good match for Rick, slow, big, and can't manuever for s***. The shooter had even less hits than Ross in the studio that's hilarious.

First of all, Rick Ross needs to STOP appearing in public & on stage WITHOUT A SHIRT. His chest & belly look DISGUSTING. It is OFFENSIVE & d@mn there DISRESPECTFUL for RICK ROSS to be ANYWHERE outside of his home bare-bellied & bare-chested. I also wish Rick Ross would STOP BRAGGING about GUZZLING LIQUOR & CHAMPAGNE BCZ THE VISUAL OF A HUGE ROUND-T ITTIED N !GGA LIKE RICK ROSS SMELLING LIKE ALCOHOL, BEING DRUNK & HANGIN' ON A GHETTO GROUPIE BROAD IS DISTURBING & a HUGE TURN OFF. Second, Rick Ross needs to quit talkin' all that GANGSTA SH***T. It just aint enough to these idiot n !ggaz to come up out of the ghettos & make it big, have everything they WANT, be able to put their parents in big lavish beautiful homes, have cars, fame, millions of dollars & a life that ANYONE would be willing to work hard for & have. These idiots have to STAY in the ghetto-ness & continue to brag/rap about drugs, money, "b****tches", "n***ggaz", GUNS, killin' each other, & basically talking like straight up GANGSTAS. I would be so busy traveling & enjoying & sharing MY money to be caught up in MESS like being SHOT AT WHILE I'M DRIVING A G0TD@MN ROLLS ROYCE!!! They dont value what they've been blessed to have bcz if they did, they'd behave entirely more civil, wouldn't engage in this gangster b.s., & would show a WHOLE lot more humility & start walking away from beef, drama, fights & gunfire. They think it's CUTE to be shot at & to be "strapped with heat", carrying loads of money & flashing it with huge big gold chains & all of these HALF NAKED STUPID BIMBO CHICKS hanging off their coattails & car hub caps. These women would do ANYTHING to be near n !ggaz like Rick Ross, Fiddy Cent, even Jay-Z & Jay-Z is MARRIED(!!!) - but these chicks are so d@mn ARROGANT they dont care!!!! I just wish BLACK MEN & WOMEN would STOP ACTING LIKE D@MN IGNORANT SAVAGES & start acting civil like they have some SENSE & UPBRINGING & most of all, start SHOWING APPRECIATION FOR & RESPECTING THEIR BLESSINGS ......
