Rick Ross Makes First Public Appearance Since Seizures, Thanks 50 Cent [VIDEO]
After weeks of being out of the public eye following a health scare, Rick Ross has made his return to the limelight by way of television.
The Maybach Music Group general hadn't made a public appearance since he suffered back-to-back seizures a couple of weeks ago, forcing him to cancel a handful of scheduled performances. But today (November 1), Ross made a stop at BET’s 106 & Park to show his support for Wale, one of his MMG artists.
Speaking on his health for the first time, Ross explained that his seizures were caused by exhaustion and that he was placed on bed rest after waking up in a hospital. He also said he plans on taking more naps in between work sessions moving forward and that he's spent a lot of time with his family and friends the last few weeks.
Ross was able to be productive during his time off, though, stating that he recorded a new track with Jay-Z while recovering. He also addressed nemesis 50 Cent, who hours after Ross suffered the seizures said that he hoped he would take care of himself. "If it was genuine, I appreciate it," he said. "And if that's the case, I thank you, homie."
And, while Rozay recuperated, his MMG family gladly held him down, including Meek Mill reppin' for him during Philadelphia's Power 99's Powerhouse concert last weekend.
Last month, Rick Ross suffered two seizures while aboard two separate flights headed to Memphis, Tennessee, where he was booked for a show. With the exception of a couple of tweets and a twitpic that circulated on the net a few days later, Ross has been virtually unseen since until now.
Tune in to BET at 6 P.M. tonight to catch the full interview. Also, be sure to pick up Wale's album, Wale’s Ambition, which hits stores today.—Steven Jones
