Rick Ross Blames Exhaustion For Seizure, Returns To TV [Video]
Maybach Music’s boss Rick Ross made his first television appearance this week since suffering from two seizures last month a board flight.
Rozay, who appeared on BET’s 106 & Park yesterday, explained the real cause of his health crisis, and taking steps to improve his lifestyle.
“I was going about my business. I boarded the flight and on the flight I had a seizure, and when I snapped out of it, they told me what had happened. I’m like, ‘You buggin’. Call a jet. We finna keep it movin’,” Rick Ross told 106 & Park hosts Rocsi and Terrence.
Rozay said his seizure was caused by lack of sleep due to his busy schedule.
“Understand me growing up and hearing about seizures, they can be violent, you bust vessels, you bite your tongue, and in my case, it wasn’t none of that. I felt a little wore out, but I felt like I could keep going and that’s what it was. I boarded a jet and I had another seizure, and when I snapped out of that one, I woke up in front of a doctor. He actually said, ‘When was the last time you slept eight hours?’ And I said, ‘Man, it had to be at least five years.’”
“Being the fastest growing label in the game, wanting to be the number one label in the game, it comes with a lot of sacrifices. And in my case, it was sleep. I would get two hours of sleep and keep moving—me being a hustler, that has to stop. I was fortunate enough for the doctor to run a battery of tests on me from cancer, diabetes, HIV, etc., and I came back totally healthy. It was a case of me not getting enough rest, just not getting enough sleep. So you know I had to fix that.”
