Rick Ross has had one frightening weekend.
The rapper was hospitalized twice for seizures (in two separate incidents) early yesterday as he tried to fly to Memphis for a show last night, and despite him trying his best to make it, he never ended up performing.
According to reports, the 35-year-old emcee suffered his first seizure and lost consciousness while on a Delta flight from Ft. Lauderdale shortly after take-off, forcing the plane to make an emergency landing.
He was treated at the airport, and then transported to a nearby hospital for further treatment.
But despite his health scare, the rapper was still determined to show up at the concert he was scheduled to perform at that night, so he hopped on a private jet and continued his journey to Memphis.
He was also supposed to open a Wingstop chicken wing franchise in Memphis on Saturday afternoon.
While on the second flight to Memphis, the Maybach Music Group CEO took to Twitter (via video message — above) and let his fans know that he was okay and to expect to see him in concert that night.
But just a few hours after posting the video, Ross suffered yet ANOTHER seizure while on the airplane, which forced the pilot to make an emergency landing in Birmingham, where he was rushed to the emergency room for treatment.
Last night’s concert was canceled, and TMZ reported Saturday that Ross intended to make another concert at North Carolina A&T’s homecoming that night.
Later, however, it was reoorted that Ross’ Saturday night performance in North Carolina was canceled, but the cconcert continued on with performances from DJ Khaled and Marsha Ambrosius.
According to Billboard.com, Ross’ next scheduled performance is this coming Friday (Oct 21) at the Tabernacle in Atlanta. Two days after that, he’s scheduled to share the stage with Busta Rhymes at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles.
After having two seizures in one day, there’s no telling what kind of condition Rick Ross is in at the moment, so we can only hope that he takes some serious time to rest and get his health in order before he starts back performing.
Rick Ross’ fifth studio album “God Forgives, I Don’t” is expected to hit stores on December 13th. The album’s lead singles “I Love My Bitches” and “You The Boss” featuring Nicki Minaj, both produced by Just Blaze, dropped last week.
