Rick Ross: Seizures Stemmed From Lack of Sleep

150 Pop Stars' Real Names


Rick Ross might spend every day hustlin', but the rapper says he'll be taking it easier after suffering a pair of seizures last month.

Appearing on BET's "106 & Park" on Tuesday night, the MC said, "I'm feeling wonderful."

Following two seizures aboard a jet bound for Memphis, Tenn., on Oct. 14, he said he was asked by doctors about his sleeping habits. He revealed he hadn't slept eight hours a night in five years, due to his musical commitments and label duties at Maybach Music.

"I would get two hours of sleep and keep moving… that has to stop," he said.

Ross added that a "battery of tests" for cancer, diabetes and HIV had found no results.

"I came back totally healthy," he said.
