Rick recalls the day he woke up in the hospital and everyone was standing around him:

When I woke up in the hospital and I had so many people around me, so many homies, it felt like I was in V.I.P. or some sh-t. But it was more like, ‘Damn, we gotta do some special things.’ That mixed with the things I was drinking, the other drugs I was doing, and on top of not resting. [I don’t think] one particular thing would have killed me. But everything combined?

These days, Ross is now codeine free and has adopted a healthier, cleaner, doctor-prescribed lifestyle. Hurricanes hit shelves on September 3.
