Rick Ross Admits Codeine Abuse Caused His Seizures

Rick Ross Opens up About Past Drug Use and Hospitalization.

43-year-old rapper Rick Ross recently came clean to ‘People’ about his hospitalization in March 2018.


Ross admitted that his seizure was largely caused by his abuse of the prescription cough syrup known as codeine.


It was the codeine…that mixed with the things I was drinking, the other drugs I was doing, and on top of not resting…[I don’t think] one particular thing would have killed me.

But everything combined?, Rick Ross, via ‘People’.

For Ross, the incident was life-changing and pushed him to take a new perspective on life.

When I woke up in the hospital and I had so many people around me, so many homies, it felt like I was in V.I.P…But it was more like ‘D---, we gotta do some special things.', Rick Ross, via ‘People’.

Now, Ross is focused on a healthier lifestyle and has gone a year without abusing codeine.


I cut the sodas out and I drink a lot more water.

That, adding in some vegetables and I get a lot more rest…I’m just living and being much more genuine, Rick Ross, via ‘People’
