Rick Ross Lost 100lbs, But There’s One Thing He’s NEVER Giving Up.

Every time you listen to a song and hear that instantly recognizable woman saying "Maybach Music" over the track, you know who is responsible: Rick Ross, the American hip hop mogul that created the Maybach label and raps about controversial topics like slinging drugs. It's hard to ignore Ross' obvious influencers, including Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G -- his music is totally reminiscent of that sound, and the music he produce is, too. He rose to fame after his single "Hustlin" made waves, and the following album, Port of Miami opened at number one on the Billboard's Top Album Charts.

To say he's a success is an understatement -- but there's one part of Ross' life that he wasn't happy with: His health. And, since he's a man that simply cannot be stopped, he decided to do something about it. See his shocking transformation below, and find out which fruit makes this tough guy rapper weak in the knees.
