According to, after Rick Ross‘ recent involvement in a shooting and car accident, the rapper has opted to hire a 24 hour armed guard for protection.

This past Monday, on Rozay’s birthday no less, the Maybach Music Mogul was shot at from a nearby car and crashed his car in attempt to escape.

Although he was unharmed in the incident, Ross isn’t taking anymore chances and will now be accompanied by a guard packing heat around the clock.

He previously enlisted security details for big events or public appearances but will now be guarded day in and day out.

TMZ’s sources close to Ross indicate that he’s been threatened a lot recently but has brushed them off. He’s paying attention now, though.

Whoever made the attempt should probably be watching their back right now too, Ross’ latest record title was God Forgives I Don’t … ominous at best.
