After having made headlines last summer for massive weight loss, Terror Squad leader Fat Joe has shed light on Miami's Rick Ross suffering two seizures earlier this month.
When asked what advice he would give his friend, Joey Crack said Ross can handle his health problems on his own.
Joey Crack's friend and fellow heavy-set collaborator Rick Ross recently suffered two seizures that many are speculating are connected to the Bawse's weight. Yet when asked by XXL if he had any thoughts on Rozay's current situation, Crills said he had no advice. "He's a grown man," Joe said of Ross. "Whatever his health problems are he's gonna deal with them or do whatever he got [to do]. I can't offer that man nothin'." (XXL Mag)
Last week, Ross' rap nemesis 50 Cent spoke on Joe and Ross' publicized seizures.
"[I wasn't] really concerned," 50 told Angie Martinez. "But, I was just saying to him. When people want to ask me a question like that, it's obvious. If a person has a seizure twice, they're not really [taking care of themselves]. You can look and see he's not conscious of his health. I seen [Fat] Joe, like, Fat Joe done slimmed down. You gotta call him Joe. That's good because you look at that. We lost [Big] Pun like that. Overall, you can look at your competition, hip-hop has always been competitive. Battling is a part of the culture. I don't wish death on nobody...It's early age for you to be having two seizures." ("The Angie Martinez Show")
Despite his two seizures, the "Boss" announced his return yesterday (October 28).
"#thebossback," he tweeted Friday.
"stronger than Ive ever been.."
"richer than I ever wuz.." (Rick Ross' Twitter)
In August, Fat Joe talked about losing 88 pounds and the attention he received afterward.
"I'm not trying to impress nobody or nothing like that," Joe told MTV News. "I'm just trying to get healthy so I can be here for my family and take care of my kids and live the life that was intended for me to live, so it was crazy when I started getting all this attention. Two weeks from now, CNN is coming to my house, Sanjay Gupta, a big special, and all this attention is crazy." (MTV)
