Tuesday, Apr 10, 2012 3:35PM
Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross is reportedly placing a large amount of emphasis on health precautions as reports claim he missed a concert last night (April 9) due to a medical emergency.
While details are still piling up, Ricky Rozay's health is what forced a show's cancellation Monday evening.
And now it's been revealed by a promotion company in Guyana, where Rozay was set to perform yesterday, that he canceled his concert there because of a "medical emergency." Here's a portion of what Hits and Jams Entertainment released in a statement: "His management has given an undertaking that once he is cleared by doctors they are willing to work on an alternative date for the Guyana show." If this ends up being true, we certainly wish Rozay the best in his recovery. (Complex)
Ross was also a no-show for a Houston concert over the weekend.
A Rick Ross show at the newly renamed Bayou Music Center (formerly Verizon Wireless Theater) was cut short on Saturday night because one thing was missing: Rick Ross. The show, which included Ross understudy Ace Hood and Alief's own Tank Law, was presented by promoters Real Uprizing. Conflicting reports continue to stream in as to the true reason for the absence of the Maybach Music boss. The openers took the stage as scheduled, but after an extended set by Go DJ Big Tho, the crowd became restless. At about ten minutes until midnight, an announcement was made that Rick Ross had suffered a seizure at his hotel and would be unable to perform. (Houston Press)
Following multiple seizures last fall, Ross previously nixed a few live concerts in October.
Ross's Saturday night (October 22) show in Los Angeles has been rescheduled to January 2012. The promoters of the show tell TMZ that the decision to move the gig was a mutual agreement by both parties. "Pushing [Ross] to do a show that he was not prepared to do was not beneficial to anyone," the promoters admit. The "B.M.F (Blowin Money Fast)" rapper has also backed out of a homecoming performance at Georgia State University, which was set for Friday (October 21). (BET)
In December, the rap star's medical emergency kit was brought to light.
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)
