Hip-Hop titans Missy Elliott and Rick Ross have been making headlines lately and not because of their music. The stars have lost a total of 130 pounds and fans are going up over their svelte new looks. Both entertainers have faced some health challenges over the last few years that have required them to change their lifestyles and diets.
Missy has been battling with Grave disease, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid glands. Since her diagnosis, she has slimmed down and continues to lose more. She recently performed at the Alexander Wang launch party for H&M and turned heads. She was wearing a fitted cap that reads, “You Can’t Workout With Us” which was appropriate for her new body. Although it had been reported that she lost 70 pounds, she later tweeted that it was actually 30 and credits her success to eating healthy and working out to Insanity videos.
Ross has suffered a number of health scares too including a few seizures in 2013. Since then, he has taken up a personal trainer through Cross Fit to get back in shape and has lost over 100 pounds. If Ross’ health scare wasn’t motivation enough, the Miami-based rapper is dropping a new album November 24 titled Hood Billionaire. The project includes special appearances from Jay Z and R. Kelly.
