TMZ reports Maybach Music Group label boss and ‘Teflon Don’ rapper Rick Ross was reportedly unconscious as a result of a seizure.

The Miami native was onboard a flight from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. heading to Memphis, Tenn. when a caller phoned emergency personnel at 12:55PM EST to report the ‘Hustlin” creator experienced a seizure.

Eyewitnesses revealed that a doctor on the plane was performing CPR on Ross’ unconscious body. Members of the performer’s entourage notified airplane attendants of the emergency. As the rhymer was being removed from the plane, which made an emergency landing, he appeared to show signs of consciousness. Ross’ team at the scene were visibly distraught as well, according to the website.

Worried fans can breathe easy as D.C. native Wale, who’s signed to Ross’ imprint and releases his sophomore album, ‘Ambition,’ Nov. 1, tweeted that his boss was alive and well. “I just talked to Ross…he’s 100 pct ok…@tmz #dontpanic #dontpanic #mmg !!!! #gfid dec 13th!” he wrote.

Rick Ross’ fifth solo LP, ‘God Forgives, I Don’t,’ is due Dec. 13.

*UPDATE: Rick Ross has just released a video via his Twitter account after reportedly experiencing a seizure earlier today (Oct. 14). The MMG boss does not utter a word about the incident but rather promotes his current singles, the Just Blaze-produced ‘I Love My Bitches‘ and ‘You the Boss‘ featuring Nicki Minaj, as he sits in a private jet. The Wingstop owner is continuing on with his scheduled performances and grand opening of a Memphis Wingstop franchise.
