After suffering two seizures while in October, Rick Ross has been making the effort to prove to fans that he is healthy, while jumping right back into his work. “I”m feeling wonderful,” Ross told the crowd during his appearance on BET’s 106 & Park on Tuesday. Building his persona on the idea of being a self-made hustler, the rapper says last month’s health scare was attributed to sleep deprivation. “Being the fastest growing label in the game, wanting to be the number one label in the game, it comes with a lot of sacrifices and in my case it was sleep,” he said of his label Maybach Music. “I would get two hours of sleep and keep moving. Me being a hustler.” Following the seizures, Ross went through a series of tests and was confirmed to be “totally healthy,” but was encouraged to cut back on his heavy workload. Of course Rozay admits he bent the doctor’s rules a bit to record a duet with Jay-Z for his upcoming album God Forgives, I Don’t. “Me and Jay-Z finished the biggest collaboration that we’ve ever done together, for my album,” he explained. Because when’s that kind of opportunity going to present itself again? We understand that everyday you’re hustlin’, RR, but try to squeeze a nap in on the schedule every now and then.
