Rick Ross's Seizure (October 14, 2011)
On the morning of October 14th, news broke that Rick Ross had suffered a seizure and lost consciousness flying from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to Memphis, Tennessee. The plane was forced to make an emergency landing while parametics performed CPR to resuscitate him.
After coming to, Ricky Rozay tried to calm his fans' fears by releasing an internet video saying that he was doing OK. But by early that same evening, it was reported that Ross suffered another seizure on his private jet en route to Memphis, where he was still planning to perform the following night.
In the morning, Ross took to Twitter to reassure his fans once again. He was then checked into a hospital where tests were performed throughout the day. Wisely, he did not perform in Memphis that night. Ross later explained that he'd been told he needed to change his sleeping habits and that doctors urged him to get more rest.
It was a scary moment for hip-hop fans everywhere. We couldn't be happier to see the Bawse bounce back. Let's all hope he takes better care of himself in 2012.
