Rapper Rick Ross is in a Birmingham, Alabama Hospital after suffering from a second seizure in just one day.
Earlier today (October 14), the rapper was a passenger on a Delta Airlines flight from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
That flight had to be turned around after Ross had a seizure and lost consciousness on the plane.
EMT’s revived the rapper, who was rushed to the emergency room and released shortly afterwards.
According to TMZ.com, earlier this evening, Rick Ross was flying to his concert in Memphis, Tennessee via a private jet, when he suffered from another seizure.
The plane made an emergency landing in Birmingham, Alabama, where the rapper was rushed to the emergency room.
He is currently in the hospital recuperating and is in stable condition.
Just before he left Fort Lauderdale, Rick Ross tweeted thie video below:
After several months of speculation within the industry, DJ Scream has signed a six-figure deal with Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group/Warner Brothers.
The duo, having collaborated in the past, began dealing with rumors circulating around the signing in April.
The deal officially became a reality when Ross described the acquisition to his quickly growing list of artists on Atlanta’s Hot 107.9.
“This is a huge opportunity for me to further demonstrate my talents and capabilities. I feel like I’ve helped to garner success for a lot of artists as a DJ, but now I have the exciting challenge of putting out records for myself,” said DJ Scream. “I’ve got a great team behind me and I look forward to adding to the greatness of MMG.”
Scream will join the Maybach Music Group roster of Meek Mill, Wale, Pill, Stalley and Teedra Moses.
He will play a crucial role in releasing music for the Maybach Music camp.
Rick Ross confirmed that DJ Scream will host his new mixtape, as well as his album sampler, leading up to the release of Ross’ upcoming full length album, God Forgives, I Don’t.
“Scream came down to the bottom and we just laid out a strategy,” Rick Ross explained. “Not only to get money but to continue to build a brand, to continue to make sure ATL and the South still be one of the premier spots to make music. You can go to Scream for a lot of different things, he’s a boss.”
No stranger to grinding in the spotlight, DJ Scream will continue his co-executive duties with Hoodrich Ent, as well as his responsibilities with Sirius XM’s Hip Hop Nation and Atlanta’s Hot 107.9.
Although DJ Scream’s debut album is yet to be titled, fans can expect a Spring 2012 release with top talent from across the hip-hop world.
Earlier this year DJ Scream took the top honor of #1 DJ of the South beating out a number of respected talents.

Heres the new mixtape. Explicit.
Rapper Rick Ross is keeping busy this holiday season, with the release of a brand new mixtape slated to drop on Christmas Eve (December 24th).
According to “Ricky Rozay,” the latest mixtape is titled Ashes To Ashes, his first collection of new music since dropping his album Teflon Don.
The new material from Rick Ross comes as he works on an album with his manager Sean “Diddy” Combs as The Bugatti Boyz, in addition to recording material with his group Triple C’s for their upcoming sophomore album Color Cut Clarity.
To hear Rick Ross tell it, he deserves to be heading to Hawaii this year, and not just to work on Kanye West’s forthcoming album. The Miami rapper likened being tapped one of the Hottest MCs in the Game to Peyton Manning earning All-Pro honors.
And with arguably the best song of the year (“B.M.F. [Blowin’ Money Fast]”), the album of the year (Teflon Don) and the mixtape of the year (The Albert Anastasia EP), Ross expects to make the cut later this month.
“I’m thinking I had a dope year,” he told MTV News. “I’m gonna keep it real.
“I Iove it, it’s like the Pro Bowl to the NFL, everybody wants to get to Hawaii,” Ross continued. “It’s a roundtable that I could truly say I respect the integrity of the roundtable and the dudes that are actually out there. Because these are dudes that are at the tours, they’re at the shows, they’re at the awards, they feel what’s happening on the streets and they can really gauge the temperature of what’s going on for everybody that’s at home.”
Ross is coming off of back-to-back top five Hottest MC finishes. He landed at #5 last year and in 2008 he was voted #4.
When the Hottest MCs debate debuted in 2007, however, Ross didn’t make the list. He recalled sitting at home watching that show and the fire it lit in him once he saw the final tally.
“Of course, a lot of times when you’re not in the top 10, you’re gonna be sour,” he explained. “I was one of the main ones sitting at home like, man, I’m better than that dude at #8, I got him. But everything is about timing. It’s about putting up those statistics, putting up those numbers and giving people a reason to argue. Give them points to argue on. I smile a lot of times at the other artists coming up and I reflect, yeah, he did put his groundwork in.”
