Do Thugs Cry? No, They Pistol Whip


Georgia—“I just wanna be the one you run to when you’re down”…Because a 500 pound rapper just pistol whipped you. “Thugs Cry” rapper Rick Ross and his bodyguard were arrested Wednesday, June 25 on charges of kidnapping, aggravated assault, and aggravated battery. The last two weeks were rough for The Boss. This is Ross’ second arrest in two weeks, not to mention that his baby mama’s grainy sex tape with former boyfriend was spotlighted in a court case this week. The real victims are the people who didn’t consent to the tape’s exposure; nonetheless, Curtis 50 Cent Jackson used the sex tape as an impetus to clown on Ross. As Ross was licking his wounds in his Georgia home, he decided to inflict some on his groundskeeper. Ross is accused of pistol whipping him for undisclosed reasons. Ross and his bodyguard were denied bond and will be stuck in jail until early July. As a result, Ross will not be able to perform at the 2015 BET Awards. Ross is no stranger to the law, aside from being a former correctional officer he has been arrested multiple times on drug charges. Let’s see if he can still get lemon pepper on his wings in jail.
