Rick Ross - Rapper Rick Ross Launches Chicken Restaurant After Double Health Scare
A double health emergency on Friday (14Oct11) didn't stop rap heavyweight Rick Ross from showing up to open his new chicken restaurant in Memphis, Tennessee on Sunday (16Oct11).
The hip-hop star twice fell ill and lost consciousness onboard a flight bound for Tennessee, where Ross was billed to perform on Friday night.
The gig, and another performance on Saturday (15Oct11), was scrapped after Ross checked into a Birmingham, Alabama hospital following his second mid-air seizure. On both occasions, the pilot of his private jet was forced to make an emergency landing so the rapper could get medical help on the ground.
But Ross wasn't going to let the double scare keep him from the launch of the Wingstop fast food restaurant venture on Sunday.
Ross' friend DJ Khaled posted a photo of the pair outside the Wingstop restaurant on Twitter.com, alongside the caption, "My brother Rozay (Ross)!! Is Good!!!"
The rapper first voiced his love for Wingstop chicken wings on his track MC Hammer. It led to Ross inking a deal with franchise bosses in August (11) to open his own eatery.
