Rick Ross says that his recent seizures were the result of exhaustion. In an appearance on last night's episode of 106 & Park on BET, the rapper revealed that he hasn't slept for eight hours a night in five years as a result of his activities as a hip-hop star. "I would get two hours of sleep and keep moving," said Ross. "That has to stop."

Ross also mentioned that while doctors treated him for his seizures, he was put through a "battery of tests" for a variety of maladies including cancer, diabetes and HIV, but came up clean across the board.
