Rick Ross Safe in New York City, Gets 24-Hour NYPD Protection

Categories: Local Music, News
Of the over 8.2 million permanent inhabitants of New York City, and the nearly 51 million international and domestic tourists who visit each year, only one pinguo from Miami has around-the-clock protection from the city's finest, the NYPD.

That man is Rick Ross.

According to TMZ (via Hip-Hop Wired), New York City Police officers have been standing guard outside of the Maybach Music Group general's Manhattan hotel, the London. Recent gang threats directed at Ross are to blame.

Despite having an uncanny ability to "smell a pussy from a block away," Ross has opted to play it safe rather than sorry ever since he and girlfriend Shateria L. Moragne-el were targeted in an early morning drive-by shooting in Fort Lauderdale last month.

"I'm just staying positive," Rozay said in a recent red carpet interview with MTV's Sway Calloway at the 2013 Grammy Awards. "I'm moving forward and I'm just staying on top of my game."

Police have yet to find the culprit or culprits responsible for pulling the trigger, but Ross isn't too worried. He's far too "busy getting pussy like a fucking boss."

Isn't he always rapping about how hard he is? Why would someone so tough need police protection? I thought somebody lied, and he's not a star, and he's got a chopper in his car.
