Hip-Hop Community Send Prayers to Rick Ross, Rapper Placed on ECMO
Rick Ross is currently hospitalized after he was found unresponsive in his Davie, Fla., on Friday morning (March 2). According to reports, although not confirmed, the Miami rhymer reportedly suffered a heart attack and was immediately rushed to the hospital.
TMZ is reporting that Ross is hooked up to an extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) machine, which takes over heart and lung functions and helps restore oxygen back into his blood. There have been reports that the Maybach Music Group mogul was put on life support but fellow rapper and friend Fat Trel informed fans that he spoke with Ross and that he’s not on life support.
Reps for Ross have not released a statement regarding the rapper’s current health status. However, Ross' family and friends are at the hospital by his side.
Meanwhile, hundreds of artists from the hip-hop community went on Twitter to send their prayers and well wishes to the MMG founder. Everyone from Lil Wayne to Missy Elliott to Snoop Dogg have sent their prayers to the self-proclaimed “Bawse” of Miami.
“I BELIEVE in the Power of Prayer, Sending Prayers up for Rick Ross,” wrote Missy, while Snoop tweeted, "Prayers up for my guy Rick Ross. Hope you pull thru my brotha."
We want to send our prayers. Ross and wish him a speedy recovery.
