Rap Artist Rick Ross Suffers Apparent Seizure on Airplane to Memphis
Rick Ross, the 35 year old Florida rap artist famous for his large girth and heavily tattooed body, was found unconscious on a flight from Ft. Lauderdale to Memphis today. Upon discovery, stewardesses urged the pilots to make an emergency landing, which they did. Emergency workers were called in at 12:55pm ET, responding to a call describing a "seizure," and took Ross away into an airport terminal on a gurney. An eyewitness told celebrity gossip site TMZ that EMT workers were administering CPR on the rapper.
Wale, the up-and-coming rapper, put out a Tweet on @Wale stating "I just talked to Ross...he's 100 pct ok..."
The multimillionaire has released four solo rap albums over the years. His latest studio album, God Forgives, I Don't, is scheduled for release December 13 2011 on Def Jam Records.
