Rick Ross is back home and on the road to recovery. This afternoon, the MMG boss broke his silence on Instagram after suffering a major health scare last week, writing, “Ain’t nothing like home 🙏🏼. I love y’all – WLR” (his initials: William Leonard Roberts II, aka the Bawse). Naturally, Rozay posted a picture of himself holding a bottle of Belaire Rosé and promoting his Black Bottles Boy brand. No shame in the game.

On March 2, Ross was reportedly on life support in hospital after being found in his home “breathing heavy, unresponsive and slobbing out the mouth,” suffering a suspected heart attack. Thankfully, four days later, Ross was released from hospital and arrived home under doctor’s care on Monday.

Rest up and get healthy, Bawse. The game needs you.

Rick Ross is now home after spending four days in a Miami hospital. TMZ reports MMG’s biggest boss was released from hospital on Monday (Mar. 5), after being found unresponsive and “slobbing at the mouth” at his residence early Thursday morning (Mar. 2). The rapper was reportedly dealing with respiratory issues that later was determined to be heart-related. Shortly after the news broke last week, there was confusion as rep for Rick Ross confirmed he was indeed admitted to a hospital, despite a family member denying it. Fat Trel, signed to Rozay’s MMG, posted on Instagram that Ross was doing fine while hospitalized.

Ross is currently under doctors care at his residence. The Miami-native has yet to make a statement, only posting a photo of his diamond-encrusted wrist with the caption #FloridaBoy on Sunday.
