Rick Ross returned to the stage on Wednesday night for the first time since his double heath scare last month to support his rap protege Wale at his album release concert in New York.
The heavyweight hip-hop star was forced to pull out of his live commitments following two mid-air seizures within hours of each other on 14 October, which led to his brief hospitalisation in Alabama.

He has since blamed the health emergencies on a lack of sleep.

Ross made sure he was well-rested on Wednesday when he joined his MMG group member Wale at Manhattan’s Highline Ballroom to celebrate the release of the rapper’s new album, Ambition.

Ross did not take the microphone, but hung out onstage and nodded along to songs like Beautiful Bliss, The Break Up, Tats On My Arm and Nike Boots, while he rapped along to his lyrics on their collaborative tracks 600 Benz and Fitted Cap.

The Aston Martin Music hitmaker wasn’t the only big name at the gig – R&B star Ne-Yo made a surprise appearance to perform White Linen with Wale, while singer Miguel joined him for Lotus Flower Bomb.

MMG’s Meek Mill also hit the stage, along with up-and-coming rappers French Montana and Black Cobain, who helped Wale perform Bait during the show’s finale.
