Rick Ross has reportedly suffered a seizure while on a plane headed to Memphis, Tenn. According to TMZ, the rapper was unconscious and paramedics had to resuscitate him.
However, the rapper has tweeted that the situation is not life-threatening. “Never dat homie..we outchea #mmg powercirle!!!!” he posted at 1:55 PM est.
Ross reportedly fell unconscious immediately after takeoff. Emergency workers reported a seizure at around 12:55 PM EST, and Ross’ plane was forced to make an emergency landing. Ross was reported to be on a gurney, with EMT workers administering CPR.
Wale, who is part of Ross’ Maybach Music Group, posted on Twitter at 1:41 PM, “I just talked to Ross…he’s 100 pct ok…@tmz #dontpanic #dontpanic #mmg !!!!” DJ Sam Sneaker also posted on Twitter, “I’m wit @rickyrozy now he good…”
Ross was heading to Memphis to open a Wingstop restaurant, the first in a planned chain of flavored wings eateries. “It’s time for us to make it happen in Memphis,” Ross said in an earlier statement. “With Wingstop, we are bringing in the food I like and adding jobs to the community. It’s a double win.”
“God Forgives, I Don’t,” Ross’ fifth studio album, is expected to be released Dec. 13. The rapper released two singles from the new full-length, the Just Blaze-produced “I Love My Bitches” and “You The Boss” featuring Nicki Minaj, last week.
