Earlier this week, Rick Ross had a brush with death after he crashed his Rolls Royce into a building following a drive-by shooting. And he isn’t taking the situation lightly.

According to TMZ, Ricky Rozay, who is yet to break his silence on the matter, has hired 24-hour armed personal security for his protection. He was previously using armed bodyguards for public events, but has now decided he wants security around the clock.

Sources say that the Maybach Music Group leader received threats for some time, but that he didn’t pay them any mind. Now, he’s had a change of heart since the attempt on his life.



Yesterday, Pusha T said that they share the same mix engineer who told him that Ross was doing fine. Additionally, “Freeway” Ricky Ross spoke to HipHopDX on the matter, stating that it’s “no surprise” that the assassinaton attempt occurred. 50 Cent also gave his two cents, suggesting that the situation looked “staged.”

Ross is currently prepping the release of his new album Mastermind, which is currently without a release date.
