Seizures knock ‘The Boss’s’ hustle
Rick Ross suffered two seizures on his private jet Friday, and manolith.com reported that an unspecified number of dates on his tour will be canceled or postponed.
Ross is one of the hardest working men in hip-hop. His fifth solo album “God Forgives, I Don’t” is slated for a Dec. 13 release and will be his fourth attempt in as many years.
After these scares, he deserves to rest and would be wise to limit the intake of some of his favorite vices.
For good reason, Ross has been receiving get-well wishes from the masses including fans and contemporary emcees.
“He’s such a crucial part of hip-hop right now and we’re just hoping he’s healthy,” rapper Nicki Minaj said to MTV News.
“That’s all we can do is pray and hope that he gets some rest and comes back stronger.”
A couple of members of The Daily Cougar staff had the privilege of interviewing him in April.
One might assume his gangster persona would make him a menacing figure, but based off the brief interaction with him that was not the case. He shook every person’s hand before the cameras started to roll.
When a reporter asked him an obvious question and members of his entourage cracked up, he did his best not to scoff at it and was respectful in his reply.
The positive news is that MTV.com reported Sunday that he has been released from the hospital.
Hopefully for the sake of the hip-hop community this will be the last of his health woes.
He may use fictional tales of being a criminal mastermind to sell records, but at the end of the day he’s a typical hard-working American who doesn’t happen to have a nine-to-five job.
After these issues get cleared up, he can get back to the grind and keep his loyal fan base entertained and his family supported.
