What Happened to Rick Ross?

TMZ reported on March 2, 2018 that Rick Ross was hospitalized in Miami, Florida. According to reports, he was found unresponsive in his home. 911 call records say his breathing was heavy and he was “slobbing out the mouth.”

The 911 caller also said that Ross has a history of seizures. In the past, he suffered two seizures on two separate flights. He made several lifestyle changes after that incident.

Along with medics, police were also alerted when Ross came to and became “combative.” He was rushed to the hospital for further treatment.

Initial reports said that his condition was pneumonia-related. However, later reports said the 42-year-old suffered a possible heart attack. A family member even denied Ross was hospitalized at all.

He was scheduled to appear at an event but it was canceled on account of his hospitalization.

From Gucci Mane, Drake, and French Montana to Mike Tyson, LeBron James, and Martin Lawrence, well-wishes for the “Hustlin’” hitmaker’s health poured in. Fans joined in too, posting prayers for his recovery on social media.

A frenzy began when some reports stated that the rapper was on “life support.” The TMZ report also suggested that his condition is very dire and he’s fighting for his life.

Some news outlets wrongfully reported that Rick Ross is dead, which led to many fans prematurely posting condolences for Ross. However, the Maybach Music Group mogul is neither dead nor on life support.

Ross’ family and friends also clarified that he’s doing fine and was never on life support.

Fat Trel, a rapper and close friend of Ross’, took to Instagram to state that Ross is not on life support.

Media personality Karen Civil contacted Ross’ camp and tweeted that the rapper is doing okay. Civil previously debunked rumors of Lil Wayne’s death.

Da Boss is not going anywhere yet, but it didn’t stop his mortal enemy, a.k.a. 50 Cent, from throwing subtle shade at Ross’ hospitalization.

Curtis Jackson posted a shot of Rocky IV’s Ivan Drago from the precise scene where the Dolph Lundgren character says his iconic line, “If he dies, he dies.” Even without a caption to go with the post, Fiddy’s Instagram followers could conclude that it was directed at Ross.
