American rapper, William Leonard Roberts II, better known by his stage name Rick Ross showed off his dramatic weight loss on Instagram, shocking millions of fans. The artist whose weight has been prone to mockery and incredibly offensive memes has slimmed down losing over 100 pounds. This May, he told Tim Westwood in an interview, “I just wanted to get in some better shape, put myself in a better position, I still eat the way I want to eat…I just go to the gym. I do this shit called CrossFit. I call it ‘RossFit.’”
The artist commenting on his weight loss added, “The most I used to do for exercise was stand up to count the money,” he said. “But now they give me fruit to eat. I forgot what fruit tasted like. I eat pears now and shit like that.
Fans reacted to the Rappers post, encouragingly some stating that they couldn’t even recognize him. The biggest ‘bawse’ (as many fans describe him) is definitely now a much slimmer ‘bawse,’ a much better improvement to his previous state. We can’t wait to see the final look and even more excited now to see his upcoming album Hood Billionaire coming out November 24th.
