Now that Rick Ross’ sixth studio album, Mastermind, has officially hit shelves, the Miami rapper is now focused on his health and wellness. While speaking with DJ Big Bink from Columbus, Ohio radio station Power 107.5, the Maybach Music Group founder stated that he’s on his way to becoming more sleek and is focused on getting more rest and working out.
“I had to change a few things, man,” Ross said. “I had to try to get me a little more sleek. Get me a little rest. You know what I’m saying? I had to change my diet. To all the ladies listening, go to my Instagram ladies…Y’all let me know if y’all see my workout kicking in yet. You heard me?”
Over two years ago, Ross suffered a seizure while on a plane traveling from Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Memphis, Tennessee. As a result of the rapper’s seizure, the plane he was traveling on was forced to make an emergency landing.
Following the incident, Ross revealed that he was attempting to change his lifestyle and had “great intentions” when it concerned his health.
In addition to speaking on his health, Ross addressed his newly-released Mastermind album and updated listeners on the status of Maybach Films.
“On this album, man, I just really wanted to eclipse everything that I did since ’06,” he said. “I wanted to just bring it all together music-wise. I wanted everybody that went and got this album to feel like it was something for everybody on there. And it was the very best of the best. You know? So, it’s all about pulling those ideas together. And making it happen…At the end of the year we directing our first motion picture. So, we finalizing the scripts right now, so it’s gon’ be big man. It’s something I’m really looking forward to doing.”
Released on March 3, Rick Ross’ Mastermind album is executive produced by Diddy and includes guest appearances from Jeezy, Jay Z, French Montana, Lil Wayne, and a handful of other artists.
