Following the news of Rick Ross' hospitalization, TMZ caught up with Drake and French Montana, who offered up their thoughts on the Miami rapper's condition. Both were spotted leaving the WME pre-Oscar party in Beverly Hills.
Drake kept it short when asked if he has any words for Rick Ross. "Pray," he said before ducking into his ride, "praying to God for real." French Montana also shared his own words of support. "I love him, that's my big brother," he said.
50 Cent was far less sympathetic. He posted a photo from the Rocky IV scene where Ivan Drago says, "If he dies, he dies." 50 didn't include a caption for context, but considering his sordid history with Ross and the timing of the post, it's not hard to make the connection. 50 published a now-deleted Instagram post of the original TMZ report with the caption, "No comment."
TMZ stated that Ross was on life support before Maybach Music Group associates Fat Trel and Rockie Fresh took to social media to dispute the report. "He in da hospital but he is not on 'life support'," Fat Trel said on Instagram. "He good."
Ross previously suffered back-to-back seizures in 2011, which ultimately led to him changing his diet and lifestyle. His current hospitalization has been connected to possible pneumonia. TMZ noted that his treatment in the cardiac unit may point to a heart attack, but that hasn't been confirmed.
