Looks like Wiz Khalifa, who’s known to be a huge fan of smoking marijuana, has met his match. During a recent party at the Supper Club in Hollywood, Khalifa was photographed beside Rick Ross, who was smoking a huge blunt. Ross posted a picture of him and Khalifa on Instagram with the caption, “Wiz came thru to blow one wit me like a trill yung n***a shud #hoodbillionaire in da air!” Ross was celebrating the release of his seventh studio album, “Hood Millionaire,” and Khalifa came by to show his support.
Ross is not only celebrating the release of his new album, but also the fact that he lost around a massive 85 pounds after a medical scare back in 2011. He told Good Morning America, “I wanted to cut back on some of the drinking I was doing and sleep a little more, you know, watch what I ate.” Ross revealed that with the help of his own spin on the CrossFit training program, as well as a few diet changes, he was able to lose all that weight.
Ross told Good Morning America about his health scare two years ago after he suffered two seizures. “I woke up from that and I was like, ‘Wow, I really need to re-evaluate what I’m doing,’” he said. He started eating healthy, revealing that he added pears to his diet. The revelation became a meme after several of his fans started posting pear emojis on his Instagram.
“I feel I’m fat boy forever. I’m going to always be a fat boy. But it most definitely was just something I had to do,” Ross continued. Despite the fact that he’s changing his lifestyle gradually, he assured that it will not affect his music. “My music comes from the heart, which comes from my mindset,” he said. “After I sit down and absorb this great interview, it’s something that’s gonna come to me that I can put into a record.”
Back in 2009, Ross founded the record label the Maybach Music Group. The label released his studio albums Deeper than Rap, Teflon Don, God Forgives, Mastermind, and 2014’s Hood Billionaire. The label is also home to other artists such as Wale, French Montana, and Omarion.
Hood Billionaire was released on November 24, 2014 and featured guest spots from artists like Snoop Dogg, R. Kelly, and Big K.R.I.T. The album received mixed reviews, despite debuting at number 6 on the Billboard 200 chart.
