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.
