I don't know about assassination. Rick Ross isn't exactly a political or culturally significant figure the likes of the president or John Lennon. I don't even think an attempt to murder Kanye West or Jaz-Z could be labeled as attempted assassinations
Hahahahaha sometimes I forget that people like this exist on the internet.

"Assassination is the murder of a prominent person or political figure by a surprise attack, usually for payment or political reasons"

That being said, Rick Ross is a big name, so it could qualify as one still.

I don't believe "assassinate" should be used unless there is a political motive. Therefore it doesn't apply to Biggie, Tupac, or even Lennon, let alone Ross's bum ass.

Dictionary.com disagrees with that.
Quote:
as·sas·si·nate [uh-sas-uh-neyt] Show IPA
verb (used with object), as·sas·si·nat·ed, as·sas·si·nat·ing. 1. to kill suddenly or secretively, especially a politically prominent person; murder premeditatedly and treacherously.
It's not exclusive to political figures.
