Capital XTRA In The Morning With Jez Welham 6am - 10am
Rick Ross has recently showed off his dramatic weight loss, but what did he look like back in the day? We look at Rick Ross through the years.
Here Rick Ross is pictured in 2006, when he was really starting to make a name for himself in the music game. Rozay's rocking his classic look; gold chain, a hefty watch and a baggy t-shirt.
Throughout his career the rapper has often been pictures performing on stage with his stomach hanging out. It might not be as toned as Drake or Chris Brown's, but Rozay was proud!
In a 2010 interview Rick Ross touched on hurtful comments that had been thrown at him in the past. "I was always the fat black dude with the cheap shoes on, i've always had thick skin" he told DR Jays. But Rozay said he didn't care, he could take a joke and he could give a joke.
Rick Ross recently told Capital XTRA's Tim Westwood: “You know, the most I used to do for exercise was stand up to count the money, you know what I’m saying?”
The photo on the left was taken in 2010 and the one on the right in 2012. Rozay was looking noticeably different!
Following his dramatic hospitalisation in March 2018, Rick Ross shade a photo of his noticeably smaller figure on Instagram. The rapper, who was reportedly on life-support, shed a huge amount of weight.
It's not currently clear how Rick Ross has lost so much weight. However it is assumed that Rozay has been on a strict diet because of his health complications.
