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.

Let this thug pay for his own damn protection! If I were a NYC resident I'd be pissed that my taxes were paying for this publicity whore's guards.

This "person" has made his fortune by releasing "music" that encourages young black men to call themselves n!ggers, to call black girls hoes, and to shoot each other for sport. Now that HE is the target of the very lifestyle that he promotes, he suddenly needs MY tax dollars to save his fat, greasy, worthless ass from gang henchmen. If he is targeted while in NY, I can only see it as a blessing. If you embrace a life of violence, expect to die by that same violence.
