Rick Ross reportedly suffered another seizure prior to a recent show in NYC, according to Page Six.
Before a scheduled performance at a B.B. Kings in New York City last Monday (April 23), the rapper experienced trouble breathing backstage and the performance was stalled for one hour, before he eventually took the stage.
Before the incident, Ross was last seen publicly sitting ringside at the Adrien Broner-Jessie Vargas fight held in Brooklyn just two days prior to the B.B. Kings show. All appeared well with his health at the time.
Back in March, the Maybach Music boss suffered a seizure that left him hospitalized, after he was found unresponsive at his Miami home. Early reports claimed Ross was on life support, however, those claims were refuted by one of his friends Fat Trel.
As a result of the seizure he suffered a few months ago, fans and musicians alike took to social media to provide prayers and well wishes for a speedy recovery –– all except rap rival 50 Cent, who continued to troll him despite his health condition. In true cold blooded manner, Fif posted a photo of Rocky IV character Ivan Drago and likened Ross’ situation to a scene from the movie –– using the line Drago delivered to his opponent Apollo Creed as the photo’s caption, “If he dies, he dies.”
Rick Ross has a history with seizures, and his ongoing complications have raised much concern about the state of his health even though he was able to gather himself to perform just last week.
Ross has referenced his issues with seizures in a few of his songs. In “Apple of My Eye” from Ross’ most recent album Rather You Than Me, the musician raps, “Just had a seizure at the Super Bowl. Woke up in the third quarter looking for the smoke.” He also talks about having seizures in the remix for his track “I’m A Boss” where he says, “Had a couple seizures call em’ minor setbacks.”
In the meantime, prayers up that Rick Ross will tend to his health needs before focusing on performing. His fans will still be here when he’s ready to return.
