Rick Ross aka Ricky Rozay stopped by BET’s 106 & Park on yesterday, which is his first interview since the rapid seizure incident. Will he become serious and start taking care of himself? Will he drop a few pounds? Will he get more sleep? We hope so.
In the recent interview, Rick explains to Terrance J & Rocsi about what actually came into play. For those that may need to get caught up to speed, the platinum rapper experienced two seizures on two different flight attempts in the same day. When he managed to snap back after the first trauma, his cohorts explain to him what happened. He then replied; “you buggin, call a jet!” O_0
Now at this point, you think Ricky would stay his azz in one place but, NO. He wanted to play Super Rozay and go get that paper. I mean, is it really that serious??
He yet, jumps on the jet and attempts to give it another try. Did he succeed? NOPE. Rick then experienced another seizure and the jet had to make an emergency landing for the second time, so that the rapper could be rushed off to the hospital, again.
After the 2nd seizure, Rick woke up in front of a doctor in the hospital bed. The doctor then asked; “when was the last time you had a sufficient amount of sleep?”. Rick responds; “it’s been 5 years since I have gotten at least 8 hours of sleep. I only get 2 hours of sleep at the most, a day.” 0_o
Hard-work and dedication is a must but bro you need some sleep!! Use all that PAPER for a pillow or something. Just don’t take an Ambien…we don’t need you making random trips to the supermarket, Popeyes or the Rib Shack in your sleep.
Rick expressed above in the interview that the doctors completed a full scan/check-up and found no signs of cancer or diabetes. He claims that the doctors said to him that he basically needs sleep. But wait…is it really just sleep? Seizures just don’t happen from not having enough sleep alone. Is there something he is not telling us? Could he be apart of a family history of seizures or epilepsy? Or is he the first contender?
Epilepsy occurs when permanent changes in brain tissue cause the brain to be too excitable or jumpy. The brain sends out abnormal signals. This results in repeated, unpredictable seizures. (A single seizure that does not happen again is not epilepsy.)
Epilepsy may be due to a medical condition or injury that affects the brain, or the cause may be unknown (idiopathic).
Common causes of epilepsy include:
- Stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA)
- Dementia, such as Alzheimer’s disease
- Traumatic brain injury
- Infections, including brain abscess, meningitis, encephalitis, and AIDS
- Brain problems that are present at birth (congenital brain defect)
- Brain injury that occurs during or near birth
- Metabolism disorders that a child may be born with (such as phenylketonuria)
- Brain tumor
- Abnormal blood vessels in the brain
- Other illness that damage or destroy brain tissue
This is definitely a serious matter and is something so drastic that it cannot be tampered with. I think Rick Ross should speak up and be honest. Tell the world what really going on. Educate the ones that may not know about this sickness. Don’t sugarcoat it. Start giving to charitable foundations or start your own pertaining to the illness. This is something that goes on especially in the black community and we need a cure immediately.
At this point, Ricky claims he has been relaxing and spending time with love ones. Says, he is also going to stay focused and do the right thing. That’s good step but we need more Rick.
Let’s just hope that Rick sticks to his word and promote healthiness. Will he lose weight? I seriously doubt it. For someone that goes to the Wing Spot after your second release from the hospital does not show any initiative to get healthy.
We don’t want him to go through that situation again. It is not benefiting to him or anyone for that matter. Stay focused Rozay! SMH.
