BREAKING: Rapper Rick Ross Unconscious After Seizure

UPDATE: Ricky Rozay is tweeting from the hospital, so all seems well. That is the great arbiter in determining someone's health, tweeting. If they can't tweet, then something must be very, very wrong. Or they are sleeping.

Frequent Houston performer Rick Ross is currently being attended to in Fort Lauderdale, Florida after suffering what appeared to be a seizure, according to TMZ. A doctor on board the flight headed to Memphis administered CPR on the rapper as the plane made an emergency ladning back in Fort Lauderdale. EMT workers are administering CPR, according to TMZ. No drugs and alcohol were involved in this incident.

The rapper was just in Houston in September with Lil' Wayne in the Woodlands, and before that at the Toyota Center in April also with Wayne. Rocks Off will update this space as soon as we hear more through the wire.

Furthermore from Rocks Off correspondent Rizoh:

Barely an hour ago Rick Ross tweeted that he was "Headed to #Memphis" for the grand opening of his Wing Stop restaurant. Now TMZ is reporting that the Maybach Music Group general has lost consciousness. Ross' plane was forced to make an emergency and paramedics had to administer CPR to resuscitate him.

Naturally, speculations have been running rampant all afternoon, but no one seems to know exactly what went wrong. One word that keeps popping up is "seizure."

The good news is that MMG rapper and Twitterholic Wale says he talked to Rick Ross and "he's 100 pct. OK." Wale added: "#dontpanic."
