Police Guard Rapper

Rick Ross
-- the rapper who has allegedly been targeted by a dangerous gang -- is being protected by NYC cops round-the-clock because of recent threats ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

We've learned cops have been guarding Ross at The London Hotel for the last few days.

Sources tell us, recent threats have been specifically aimed at the rapper ... and he's not taking them lightly.

You'll recall Ross' Rolls-Royce was shot up in Ft. Lauderdale last month after the rapper's birthday party while Ross was making his way home. Ross and his passenger were not injured in the attack -- clearly, the shots were intended as a warning.

Who cares about these publicity-hungry rappers? Don't spend public funds protecting them. Let natural selection take its course.

He doesn't have enough money to hire security for protection and has to use the police force?

I live the life I want to be proud of as I'm dying. You know, bullets free. BUT I'm not saying since he raps a certain way or look a certain way that he deserves this. Nobody likes living in fear. Personally, I like his blunt smoking fat asss. I think this gang is jealous. Let the man live his life.
