Miami's Teflon Don Rick Ross was on a flight from Ft. Lauderdale to Memphis this morning when he reportedly suffered a seizure, forcing the pilot to make an emergency landing.
He is allegedly still unconscious, and paramedics are reportedly attempting to resuscitate him. TMZ (of course) has a few more details:
10:36 AM PST: A witness tells TMZ, Rick fell unconscious right after take-off.
We're told his entourage jumped out of their seats to alert plane personnel — at which point a doctor on board administered CPR on the rapper.
The plane made an emergency landing right away — and we're told, as Rick was being wheeled off the aircraft, he appeared to show signs of life.
UPDATE: Ross is apparently conscious and tweeting. Hollywood Reporter states that the rapper was on his way to Memphis to open a Wingstop restaurant (!?) and perform at the University of Memphis' basketball team's "Memphis Madness" season kickoff event.
"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."
