Stupid a$$ people    

I'm not a fan of Rick Ross but I will be praying for you and your family. People say all kinds of cruel things to stars are about stars but if that was your mother, father, sister, brother, son, daughter, cousins,etc... and someone one would quote what some of u stupid ass people without an education is saying you would be angry. But most will say I don't giva a F**k but your family will suffer and then you will wonder why. dum a$$ people.

How awful. Don't know who he is, rap isn't my genre. But hope all goes well for him.

People who make dumb and ignorant statements about anyone online pretty much have no life, no woman/man, and are jealous of someone living their life successfully.... Glad Rick Ross is doing better....

Never heard of him, but since he's a rapper I can assume his lyrics revolve around the words "YO WHAT UH-HUH YEAH"

Okay, so you guys make not like Rick Ross' music, but he's still a human. The comments that y'all are making are truly disgusting. It shows just how much how much character you all are lacking. Have a little bit of humility and pray for the guy. You'd want someone to do it for you if the shoe was on the other foot. Get well soon, Rick Ross.

I've never heard of him---does he really need an "entourage"? He looks very unhealthy.

I'm a big guy too and I remember having heart problems a couple months ago, it was such a scary moment and it made me really re-evaluate what's important in my life. After the doctor's told me I was going to be ok, I vowed that I would focus on getting myself healthier. I'm proud to say that I've lost 20 pounds in the past 2 months and I feel so much better. I have more to go but hopefully this will make Rick decide to look after his health more and get himself in better shape.
