Rick Ross makes his first public appearance on 106 and Park after suffering two seizures. Ross tells 106 and Park his two seizures were caused by not getting enough sleep.
Ross says a conversation with a doctor after his second seizure made him realize that his non-stop work ethic was affecting his health. “I had another seizure, and when I snapped out of that one I woke up in front of a doctor,” he remembered. “He asked me, ‘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 come with a lot of sacrifices, and in my case it was sleep. I would get two hours of sleep and keep moving, you know what I’m saying? Being a hustler—and that has to stop.”
However, despite the scary incident, Ross says he’s in good health overall. “I was fortunate… The doctor [ran] a battery of tests on me, cancer, diabetes, HIV, etc., and I came back totally healthy,” he told the Livest Audience. “It was a case of me not getting enough rest, just not getting enough sleep, so I had to fix that.” – BET
