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.

I hop no one kills this dude because if they do people will be calling him the greatest ever. For what ever reason when ever a rapper is killed people feel the need to call him the greatest rapper of all time

If you shot a bunch of bullets and couldn't hit Rick Ross's big ass... you got problems with AIM. I could only imagine what your toilet seat at home must look like. LOL

I'm sorry for those that this is their reality. To live in a world that bullets are the answer to street cred and you can hate the words in an artists music enough to shoot them. I first think this sh** is fake. but to them it is real life. a life I hope my kids never have to live. May the good Lord protect.
