Rick Ross’s Twitter Account Hacked by 50 Cent Impostor

A hacker took control of Rick Ross’s Twitter account over the weekend, changing his name and background to that of 50 Cent, and even posting the G-Unit leader’s tweets.

The hacking began after 50 tweeted “I want to impact peoples lives more. I created a new goal for my self, I want to feed a billion people in Africa over the next 5 years,” at which point the hacker controlling @rickyrozay, Rick Ross’s Twitter handle, posted the exact same tweet.

Ross’s account then posted several of Fif’s tweets, before the hacker tweeted, “This has been an entertaining social experiment. You all took the bait, got riled up and for what? To retweet and get up in arms…about two rap heavyweights in their won right that don’t give a FUCK about none of y’all.”

Rick Ross’s Twitter, by this time outfitted with the Queens MC’s Twitter background and name, then posted a final tweet by the hacker: “And if you think 50 Cent really has the mental capacity and/or time to hack a Twitter account, you’re even more gullible. Good night robots.”

A representative for Maybach Music Group label issued the following statement about the Twitter fiasco: “@RICKYROZAY HAS BEEN HACKED..WE DONT CONDONE NONSENSE (sic)!!”

The tweets have since been erased from Rick Ross’s account.

When reached by XXL, a rep for 50 Cent did not have any comment about the incident, but clarified that the rap mogul’s Twitter account had not been compromised.—Martin Spasov
