Earlier today, I reported that Miami’s rapper Rick Ross suffered a seizure on a plane. The plane made an emergency stop, Ross was taken to a nearby hospital and released. According to TMZ.Com, Ross suffered another seizure this evening. Below is how TMZ.Com is reporting the story:

TMZ has learned … Rick Ross‘ private jet made an emergency landing in Birmingham, Alabama, 2 hours ago, en route to his concert in Memphis … and we found out he suffered another seizure.

It’s the second time today where a plane in which the rapper was a passenger made an emergency landing.  We broke the story … Rick suffered a seizure this morning on a Delta flight that returned to the Ft. Lauderdale airport.

Rick went to the hospital, was released, and then took off at 5:07 PM ET from Ft. Lauderdale to make his concert  tonight in Memphis. But at 5:44 PM CDT, the plane was diverted and landed in Birmingham after Rick had a seizure on board.

Rick is currently in a Birmingham hospital emergency room.  We do not know his condition.

Before Rick took off from Ft. Lauderdale, he tweeted a video showing he was ok.

Rick was supposed to be on stage in Memphis at 7:30 PM ET.

UPDATE:  We’ve just confirmed with the hospital that Rick is in STABLE condition.

Harlem’s up & coming rapper A$AP Rocky just signed a record deal with Polo Grounds Music/RCA Records, it was announced today. This past summer, the 23-year-old New York native became popular and made a name for himself with his singles “Purple Swag” and “Peso,” which got millions of views online and is already in heavy rotation on New York’s radio station Hot 97. He is currently prepping his debut mixtape Live Love ASAP, which will feature members of the A$AP crew, surprise guests, and production by in-house producer A$AP Ty Beats.

I feel great about the new deal; I believe it was destined and with a label like Polo Grounds & RCA behind me I don’t see anything stopping us,” says A$AP Rocky. “I wanted go with the right partner that can help get a bigger platform to get me and my A$AP crew’s music and movement out. I expect to be in the same league as today’s most relevant artists, and there are just some things you can’t do on your own. The planis to not only release great music, culture, and style for myself and A$AP worldwide, but to also be the next major artist/exec in the business and make great business men out of my brothers.”

Bryan Leach, President of Polo Grounds Music, added, “I haven’t seen an unsigned artist with this much hustle and confidence since I signed Pitbull & Lil Jon and Rocky being from Harlem (as I am) was gravy! He dares to be himself which I love and will support fully. He’s also created great alliances and built a solid unit. Winning Rocky & his team’s confidence was not easy or fast but as they are partners I will make sure everything remains in his hands.”

A$AP Rocky will join Drake on his “Club Paradise” tour later this fall.

Congrats goes out to A$AP Rocky from Don Bleek, Dollah Tha Rapper, YoDonBleekRaps, and Billion Dollah Nation. Much success in all of your future endeavors.
