Shakes on a Plane: Rapper Rick Ross' Health Scare
Rapper Rick Ross who exploded on the scene a few years ago with his anthem Hustlin' has quickly become a fixture in the rap community. Ricky has released multiple albums and collaborated with some of the biggest names in hop-hop. For a short period this morning it seemed that one of hip-hops rising stars may flame out.
TMZ exclusively reported this morning that Ross was unconscious and being given CPR. Ricky was on a plane from Ft. Lauderdale to Memphis when he reportedly had a seizure. His entourage immediately jumped into action and alerted plane personnel of the situation. This is when a doctor that was on the plane stepped in to administer CPR to the rapper.
The plane made an emergency landing and paramedics where standing by. As Ross was wheeled off the plane witnesses said that he appeared to show signs of life. Policed confirmed that Ross was taken to a nearby hospital where he is under close supervision. Drugs and alcohol are not suspected to be at fault.
Though this situation is scary a family member has told TMZ that Rick is doing fine. Rapper Wale is a close friend of Rick's tweeted that rick was 100 percent okay and a few minutes later the Teflon Don himself tweeted to let fans know he was fine.
Though there are very few details at this time it is good to hear that Rick is doing well after such a scary situation. Hopefully he recovers in time to see the release of his new album, "God Forgives, I Don't." Now the only question I have is why Rick Ross was on a commercial flight.
