WOW! Rick Ross Drops 100 Pounds: “I Eat Pears Now And S**t” [Photos]

June 24, 2014  |  

Well look who’s getting all teeny tiny these days…

Rick Ross has been slimming down since last year, and according to E! Online, the rapper has dropped around 100 pounds with the help of CrossFit and better eating habits. For those who don’t know, CrossFit is a fitness regimen that is both a strength and conditioning workout, and helps to improve a range of things, including stamina, power, agility and more, all at the same time. Losing so much weight is quite a feat for the rapper, who has struggled with his weight for quite some time, but rarely let it bother him (hence him always taking off his shirt during performances with not a care in the world). So what spurred the big change of heart? In an interview with Tim Westwood in London last month, he said he just felt like he needed to do better when it came to his size. 

“You know, I ain’t really keeping up on, you know, the amount, you know, of weight. I just, I just wanted to get in some better shape, you know what I’m saying,? Put myself in a better position. So I just, I still eat the way I want to eat, I just go to the gym. I do this s**t called, uh, CrossFit. I call it ‘RossFit.’ It’s called ‘RossFit’ now. What it is, is earlier this summer, Reebok had introduced to a trainer, and what he turned me on to was a training…Let’s say, for instance, if you got on a treadmill and you did that s**t for 30 minutes, yeah, you’re burning calories but you could be doing something that’s burning calories and building muscle at the same time. So it’s like, you’re working out a shorter time. I could go out and do some s**t for 20 minutes and you could be looking like this [flexes in camera], you heard me?

You know, the most I used to do for exercise was stand up to count the money…But now, they give me fruit to eat. I forgot what fruit, you know, tasted like. I eat pears now and s**t like that.”

Looks like all that fruit eating (“and s**t”) is working out well for him! Check out more photos of Ross all slimmed down below.

    I think he just wanted to get healthy like all the other over weight rappers did who started to have health issues. Look at Scarface Fat Joe Paul Wall they all decided their health was important.

  • wyllie chilunga

    He looks shorter than usual

  • Momma Dee Tha Q.U.E.E.N

    I thought Reebok dropped him over the UONEO controversy and then he went on about how no one was checkin for Reebok?

  • Rell

    Damn when he was fat. They hatted on him, Now he slimmed up they hatting on him. Pick a F*king lane people.

  • Just saying!!

    I was hoping to come on here and congratulate him but after reading that LAWD HAVE MERCY!! They don’t coach these people on how to talk before having all these interviews!? Goodness gracious!

  • Brokeneyelash

    Kudos for getting healthier, now he can work on is vocabulary. What is the point of ending a thought/sentence with the word sh*t, or the words: you feel me, you heard me, you know what I mean, you know what I’m saying…I cant stand it!!

    Crossfit… Where everyone brags about working out and not a damn person looks like they work out. I’m calling B.S.!

  • CAliQueen

    What a great transformation. He looks much healthier and “easier” on the eyes, however he needs to go harder on the weights. No more sagging boobs.

    Seriously? Please stop directly quoting this guy. My head hurts.

  • blackdolphin

    Just keep your shirt ON Rick, ON !!

  • Guestest

    And i thought i had a potty mouth. Jesus Christ dude Lol.. Anyway, i’m happy for him! He looks better..

  • Damn diane

    Clearly, the way he is talking is an act. NO ONE who has a successful music career and CEO of his business is talking like this when the cameras are gone. To even create marketing strategies for your music you have to be smart and business savy. Clearly the way he is speaking is an effort to protect his fading street cred as a rap artist. How hard would his message be if he is being health conscious ? Real Thugs don’t care about themselves, least no damn pears! This is an Act to appear on the same education level as his audience in front of Camera. He was a correctional officer for God’s sake! You think they would have hired him talking like that? Chile please

    • TeeTeeCakes38

      Yes Rick, have several seats! LOL

    • Alexious Johnson

      Which is even more of a disgrace than if that were his actual vernacular. …

  • Sam W

    Really?? Rick Ross really?? Can you learn how to speak properly?? How old are you? Trying to purposely sound dumb is not cool. It does not make you “hood,” you sound stupid. For once give an interview with the proper use of American English.

    • Rissie75

      EXACTLY!!! He’s no where near dumb, he went Albany State University!!! Sad that he feels he has to ACT dumb to be accepted, SMH

  • Cdj

    Am I the only one who busted out laughing at ” I eat pears and s#it”??? . Lmao!, keep it up Ross!

  • Stacy D. Smith

    He’d better stop trifling with gangsters or he’ll be slim AND casket-sharp. Trick Trick is really about that life.

  • coolyfett

    Nothing wrong with living healthy

  • Jordan Washington

    Good for him. Getting in shape and eating healthy will only benefit your life.

  • Brittany

    Go Rozay! He looks great! I know I’m not the only one that was concerned about his weight.

  • NikkieBaby

    This is great for Rozay, but during the workouts… could he start listening to Hooked On Phonics please! All that ebonics makes no sense. SMH

    • Evette Rawls

      LMAO!!!!!!! #dead

  • Trisha_B

    I’m happy for him!! He shouldn’t loose anymore weight tho. He looks good at this size. All my friends make fun of me for having this crush on him lmao. Something. About that beard lol… ..he’s still working w/ Reebok?

    Since his gf & Tamar are bffs, maybe he can help Vince get his weight under control

    • Rissie75

      Who’s his GF??? Dang I’ve been out of the loop, lol!

      • Trisha_B

        Shateria. She’s a fashion designer. Her label is Frontrow. Her & Tamar are always together. She was in one of her videos too. She’s a beautiful girl. There was rumors they weren’t together anymore tho.

        • Rissie75

          Ahhhh yes, I do remember hearing about her! Very beautiful woman!

          • Trisha_B

            She is a breath of fresh air compared to those other rapper girlfriends lol. Ross needs to keep her!

  • Eirene Omaivboje

    He looks great…but he needs to take some of those college remedial English courses.

  • Mrs.Mason

    he doesn’t need to get any smaller tho…this weight looks good on him

    • Brittany
