As I predicted a year ago, black women have inspired black me to be more aware of their health. Rappers were no exception..

Rick Ross says he’s losing weight without having to alter his diet too much.

“I still eat the way I want to eat,” he says in an interview with Tim Westwood. “I just go to the gym…It’s this shit called CrossFit. I call it RossFit. It’s called RossFit now.”

The rapper says Reebok introduced him to a trainer who gave him workout tips. He says that’s changed his lifestyle.

“The most I used to do for exercise was stand up to count the money,”

Ross says.

While he may not have changed his diet too much, Ross says he has added a food group to his daily intake.

“Now, they give me fruit to eat,” he says. “I forgot what fruit had tasted like. I eat pears now and shit like that.”

Fat Joe, who has also been outspoken about weight loss was asked about advice he’d give Ross in 2011.

“He’s a grown man,” Joe said at the time. “Whatever his health problems are, he’s gonna deal with them or do whatever he got [to do]. I can’t offer that man nothin’.”

    for a lot of people it takes a medical scare before they do something.
