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.

People! Please stop liking his music !!!. That is the only way to kill him for good, otherwise he becomes a music legend. We must kill him like we killed MC Hammer and Kris Kross

Sorry, I can't feel sorry for this guy. How do you get on the radio and say you're a "BOSS", and then need a team of police security everywhere you go?. O.k. so you pissed off a little gang who got their feelings hurt...waa waa waa. If you're a real gangster, you stick to every word, don't act 2 faced and expect everyone to buy into it. I think Rick Ross is fake...and the GD's are a bunch of wanna be rappers pissed off that they can't get a record deal.

So let me get this straight. A multimillionaire rapper receives around the clock protection because the Gangsters Disciples wants to kill him, yet a woman/man who is threatened by their spouse receives a restraining order. Well that's silly! He should just go get a restraining order, works so well for the rest of America! Glad I can pay the police to protect you and people who really deserve it get a piece of paper telling them the person threatening their life cannot come within 500 yards.............

Hands down my favorite rapper, but you can't go around ****ing with a nation of true, hard core gangstas and expect them not to retaliate. These Folks have nothing and Rosay has everything. They want what he has and are willing to take it all away from him.

You live by the sword, you die by the sword. He's wealthy enough to pay for his own protection. And, why is it private citizens, that aren't celebs, have to protect themselves with a restraining order, while this millionaire gets his security paid for by the taxpayers of California? Wouldn't mind knowing why they want to kill him though....did he poke the lion to see if it would bite?
