*A man was pronounced dead and another bystander was injured Thursday night during a drive-by shooting outside rapper French Montana’s tour bus in Philadelphia.
According to reports, a crowd had gathered around the 28-year-old rapper’s bus as it pulled into a local hotel after a show when someone in a passing car opened fire on the group.
Authorities said a 27-year-old man died after being shot in the abdomen, and another man sustained a bullet wound to the shoulder.
Local news outlets are reporting that police are questioning 25 people, including the rapper and his entourage. Three people, meanwhile, were reportedly taken into custody after police discovered they were carrying guns.

*Hmm, we can only wonder what the real Rick Ross thinks of this.
It seems that this morning, the fake Rick Ross, otherwise known as rapper Rick Ross, got a dose of the life he’s living. Or at least the life he raps about living.
Rapper Ross, according to reports, was tooling down fancy Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale when someone in another car opened fire, causing Ross to lose control and crash into an apartment building.
Witnesses reported seeing the bearded Ross and a female exit the silver Phantom apparently unharmed, according to the Sun-Sentinel.
Police say the driver — who they are still not identifying as Ross because of the perps have not been arrested — took evasive action as dozens of shots rang out and crashed into an apartment complex at SE 15 Avenue.
Ross, aka The Boss, apparently attended a party on the street before the shots rang out about 5 a.m.

Ross, 36, is a former Miami-Dade County corrections officer who hit it big in the hip-hop business about six years ago with his rookie album, Port of Miami.
The singer of Aston Martin Music is managed by Sean Diddy Combs‘ Ciroc entertainment and is working on a new CD.
Ross, who changed his real name (Williams Leonard Roberts) to famed drug dealer Rick Ross‘, is no stranger to controversy and violence. In 2008, he was arrested on gun and drug charges and accused of being a member of a Carol City street gang.
