Rick Ross Gives Health Advice To Lil Wayne (VIDEO)

As Lil Wayne continues to recover from his recent series of seizures, the rapper’s close friend, Rick Ross has offered the Young Money MC some advice during an interview with VIBE TV.

“It’s just all about putting yourself first. And we always reiterate that with each other, getting rest,” he said. “Because sometimes your desire could overwhelm the things that you know are right for you. We touched base and I sent my love.”

In addition to rest, the Maybach Music Group head honcho also maintains a balanced diet which includes pineapples. According to Rozay, his refined meal plan was taken upon his doctor’s suggestion following his 2011 health scare.

"When I got out of the hospital — you know, I had a seizure last year — when I was leaving, the doctor told me, 'You gotta eat some more fruit, drink you some water, eat fruit and just relax for a little while,'” he revealed to MTV News during a 2012 interview, all of which spawned the birth of his single “Diced Pineapples.”

“My fruit of choice was pineapples. For the next three weeks, I woke up every morning and ate diced pineapples, and I put the concept together.”
