How 21 Rappers Responded To Near-Death Experiences

Rick Ross

Date: October 2011

What Happened?: William Leonard Roberts aka Rick Ross suffered two seizures in one day while flying on his private jet from Ft. Lauderdale to Memphis.

How He Responded: Ross attributed his seizures to poor diet, lack of sleep, and dehydration. He responded by getting out of the hospital and going to Wingstop (no —seriously). Later, when Ross was profiled in Rolling Stone, he claimed that after the seizures he's been trying to sleep more and drink more water, but instead of changing his diet he would just eat a salad along with his regularly massive meals. Despite those changes, Ross suffered a third seizure last April. Let's hope he's making even more serious changes this time around.
