The hip-hop world received quite a scare earlier today when it was reported Rick Ross had a seizure and fell unconscious. According to TMZ, Ross was on a plane to Ft. Lauderdale from Memphis when he suffered a seizure after take-off. After Ross’s crew alerted plane personnel, a doctor onboard performed CPR on Ross who was described as “unconscious”. The plane made an emergency landing where Ross was immediately taken off the plane. Upon hearing the news, Twitter was in uproar with tweets of “Pray for Rick Ross.” Rapper Wale took to his Twitter to calm everyone down and let them know The Boss is doing just fine. He tweeted, “I just talked to Ross…he’s 100 pct ok..#dontpanic.” Ross is said to be resting comfortably and recovering at a hospital.
Stay tuned for updates…
Rick Ross has suffered another seizure on a private jet while en route to his show tonight in Memphis. After another emergency landing, he was rushed to the emergency room. TMZ is reporting he is in stable condition…
I applaud his commitment to the show, but your health ALWAYS should come first. Take care of yourself, and get some rest Rozay!
