Last week, rapper Rick Ross was reportedly found unconscious in his Florida home and rumored to be hospitalized on life support for unknown reasons.
On Monday, it was reported that he had been released from the hospital.
By the end of the week, Ross posted to social media for the first time following his health scare.
“Ain’t nothing like home. I love ya’ll,” wrote the 42-year-old entertainer on Instagram.
In the photo, Ross is only showing the back of his jacket which aptly reads, “Black Bottle Boys,” as Ross stands with his hand pressed against a concrete wall while holding a bottle of Luc Belaire Rosé — a champagne brand of which he’s an ambassador.
Although the location of the photo is unknown, Ross made sure to tag his music label, “Maybach Music Group” to the somewhat ominous post.
Celebrity gossip site TMZ, which originally broke the story of the music mogul’s mystery illness (after someone at Ross’ Florida home called 911 and reported him unresponsive) is now saying he had respiratory issues that turned out to be heart-related. Ross is now allegedly receiving additional medical care at his home.
Ross’ family and friends have denied claims that he was put on life support. Nonetheless, fans and celebrities alike have showered his social media feeds with prayers and well wishes.
Ross was set to perform at the end of March in Houston and in mid-April in Biloxi, Miss., according to LiveNation. No word on how his ailment might affect these performance dates.
Meanwhile, the only person who hasn’t shown much compassion is his longtime hip-hop rival, 50 Cent, who posted a thinly veiled message seemingly directed at Ross, for which he has since caught plenty of shade.
50 Cent posted a picture of a scene from the movie Rocky IV in which one of the Russian fighter Drago’s hits kills Apollo Creed. In the scene, Drago stands over a dying Creed saying, “If he dies, he dies.”
