Miami’s DJ Khaled has revealed a short conversation he had with Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross shortly after sending shock waves to the entire hip-hop community after suffering a seizure on Friday (October 14).
According to Khaled, he found out about Ricky Rozay’s medical complication online and immediately reached out.
“I got the news like everyone else did. But when I talked to him I didn’t ask him what happened. I didn’t ask him about specifics… I just told him, “Man, I love you. Are you okay?”, says Khaled. “And Ross was like “Man, you trippin… I’m good.” He was like “We got to get this album done, MMG, Powercircle, We The Best, let’s go!” (VIBE)
Not only on the mind of Khaled, but even Ross’ rap nemesis 50 Cent wished him the best.
Long time nemesis 50 Cent also weighed in asking that Ross take care of himself. “Yea he gotta take care his self,” responded Fif to a fan who asked if he had any words on the Ross situation. Past collaborator Drake tweeted a succint message reading, “Prayers for Rozay.” Texas rap vet Bun B also called for calm and prayers for the Maybach Music Group boss. “Pray for my brother @rickyrozay It might not be serious at all, but let’s pray for him anyway,” tweeted the Underground King. A Tribe Called Quest front man Q-Tip chimed in with, “Prayers up 4 @rickyrozay homie rest up. Your health is bigger than bizness.” (RapFix)
Despite the Boss’ confidence, he experienced a second seizure shortly after leaving a hospital.
