Last week, reports landed online claiming Ross now travels with an emergency health kit in light of experiencing two seizures earlier this fall.
Rick Ross will not be caught off guard in case he suffers another medical emergency -- the rapper now travels with his own special medical kit, just in case the seizures strike again ... TMZ has learned. As TMZ first reported, Ross suffered not one ... but two seizures on the same day in October while traveling to an event. According to multiple sources, Ross wants to make sure he's prepared in case it happens again ... and put together a kit that includes 3 different prescriptionmedications, vitamins, water and an inhaler. We're told Ross is serious about having the kit near him at all times ... and often requires a member of his entourage to carry it around wherever he goes. (TMZ)
Recently, Ricky Rozay updated fans on his current health condition and said ample rest was needed for a full recovery.
"Coming out the hospital, you be ready to get back to work. I'm a grinder, I'm a hustler. That's the next order of business. You're so used to moving at 80 miles per hour. I gotta get rest now. Well, I'm supposed to. I try to. That's what it was. I'm blessed, man. I went in and had my MRI and everything came back straight. It was just a case of me being overly exhausted." (Sucker Free)
Placing health first, Def Jam Senior VP of Marketing Chris Atlas recently confirmed the label's decision to push back God Forgives, I Don't from its original December 13th release.
"I think we're all aware of his recent health issue, and based on some of the minor setbacks with that, we weren't able to confirm certain opportunities, because he physically wasn't able to deal with certain things at the time," says Atlas. "We want this to be his biggest album -- we know it's going to be his biggest album -- so we did not want to pressure him into releasing an album based on the sake of a date." (Billboard)
