Rick Ross blames last month's seizures on hustler-related sleep deprivation

Rick Ross made headlines and scared fans after suffering two seizures last month, but the rapper insisted that he's "feeling wonderful" during an appearance Tuesday on BET's 106 & Park. So why all the seizures? Ross attributes his health issues to lack of sleep. “Being the fastest growing label in the game, wanting to be the number one label in the game, it comes with a lot of sacrifices and in my case it was sleep,” Ross said. “I would get two hours of sleep and keep moving. Me being a hustler." To back up his "hustler's need sleep, too" thesis, Ross submitted to a battery of testing, which confirmed that he's "totally healthy"—he was cleared for "cancer, diabetes, HIV"— but needs to slow down a bit. Not that Ross is planning on doing that anytime soon; his upcoming album, God Forgives, I Don't, comes out Dec. 13. [via Popdust]
