Rick Ross was the one who was nearly killed in a botched assassination attempt in late January, but he may be the one who winds up in jail.

According to the police report from the Fort Lauderdale Police Department -- obtained by the Smoking Gun -- Ross was armed with a black and chrome Smith & Wesson semi-automatic at the time of the shooting.

It was reportedly tucked inside of Ross' front waistband and fully loaded with one bullet in the chamber.

His license to carry a handgun, however, was expired at the time of the incident. And that may land in some legal trouble.

No suspects have been identified in the shooting yet.

If Ross were to go to jail over the unlicensed gun, he would just be another in a long line of rappers who've been to prison because of a firearm.
