Rapper Rick Ross has canceled his concert at Georgia State University that was scheduled for Oct. 21 (Friday) as he continues to recuperate after suffering two separate medical seizures last Friday. The Miami boss was scheduled to headline the GSU’s Homecoming concert, but for obvious reasons, he can’t make it.
The university couldn’t find a replacement in time so they will offer a full refund on all bought tickets. “We are disappointed he had to cancel, but completely understand that Rick Ross needs to take care of himself at this time,” said concerts director George F. Baker III in an official statement. “We hope he is better soon.”
There’s no official confirmation if Ross will appear with Busta Rhymes for a show at L.A. Live (Nokia Theater) in Los Angeles this Sunday. Honestly, Bussa-Buss is a true showman when he’s on the mic, so we think Rozay can sit this one out.
Meanwhile, Ross’ health has been a concern for many of his fans since the incident last week. No one was more worried than Maybach Music Group artist Pill. “I myself and the rest of the MMG, we’re very concerned,” he told DJ Green Lantern on his radio program. “[He's] good right now. Ross [goes] hard, nonstop, pause. He don’t really take no breaks so I think that just was a result of him not taking breaks. But the most he ever needs is a week off and [he's] good.”
Ross’ good friend DJ Khaled also concurs with Pill’s sentiments. The celebrated DJ-producer is now helping the Miami rapper get some much-needed rest. “He is at the crib and is going to rest and just chill until he gets his energy back,” he says. “I told him he has to stay home for two weeks. I told him he has got to just chill and relax. I told him he is a big enough star that he can just stay home. His life is more important.”
We couldn’t agree more. Rest up, big man.
