Samuel Ferguson, Hip-Hop Journo Who Broke the Rick Ross Correctional Officer Story, Murdered in Miami

    Samuel Ferguson, president of Miami street magazine Don Diva, was murdered on the Miami turnpike on Aug. 14 when a car full of unknown assailants pulled alongside his car and opened fire. Ferguson’s major story in his nine-month tenure at Don Diva was having a hand in breaking the Rick Ross is a former correctional officer story, with an interview titled “Will the Real Rick Ross Please Stand Up.” Police have announced they have no suspects, but are looking for a black car.

     

    A lot of sites have already fingered Ross for the shooting, since he had this to say after Ferguson accused him of being a correctional officer:

    “Ferguson is a liar, he’s an informant, he’s a rat, he’s a b***h,” Rick Ross said of Ferguson during their feud. “I hope he’s offended; get at me in the streets n***a you know how we play. This s**t about to get Deeper Than Rap.”

    Given that Ross was officially confirmed as a prison guard shortly after that statement, that was probably just another instance of him bending reality to make himself seem like something he’s not. Still, though, doesn’t look good for Ross, even if he probably had nothing to do with the shooting and it was probably random. [Daily Swarm]
