Famous rapper returned home from the hospital
The Purple Lamborghini sensation returned to his home in Florida on Monday after four days of treatment, and is now receiving further care from the comfort of his own bed, according to THE SUN.
Rick was treated in the hospital’s cardiac unit, and it was suspected the star suffered a heart attack which manifested itself in respiratory issues.
The Aston Martin Music rapper was also reportedly “hooked up to a machine that’s taking over the function of his heart and lungs” whilst he continued to undergo treatment at the hospital.
Sources claimed Rick– real name William Leonard Roberts II – had been placed on ECMO, or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, which is a technique used to oxygenate his blood outside of his body, before it’s pumped back into his body.
And after reports of his hospitalisation broke, his celebrity pals took to social media to share their well wishes for a speedy recovery.

Missy Elliott tweeted: “I BELIEVE in the Power of Prayer Sending Prayers up for Rick Ross”. And Snoop Dogg also wrote on Twitter: “prayers up for my guy Rick Ross hope you pull thru my brotha”. Meanwhile, Drake previously voiced his concerns to TMZ. When asked if he had any words for Rick, the Hotline Bling singer said: “I’m praying. Praying to God for him.”

It comes after 50 Cent was slammed for mocking hip hop rival Rick with a cruel Rocky meme.
Fiddy, real name Curtis Jackson, posted an Instagram pic of Rocky IV character Ivan Drago at the point he famously utters “if he dies, he dies” after beating to death Apollo Creed.
The pair have a fierce rivalry and have swapped barbs in public and on diss tracks.
An ongoing spat has included cartoons, alleged sex tape leaks and law suits.
But Rick fans were quick to jump to his defence and perceived it as a thinly veiled potshot.
