Tone Loc Collapses Onstage at Florida Concert

Rapper Tone Loc collapsed at an outdoor performance in Florida on Friday, according to reports.

Tone, best known for his ’80s hits ‘Wild Thing’ and ‘Funky Cold Medina,’ and appearances in movies ‘Ace Ventura’ and ‘Poetic Justice,’ was halfway through a performance at Capt’n Fun Beach Club when he passed out and was carried offstage, suffering an apparent seizure.

The rapper was rushed to a local hospital and released later that day.

A source from Tone’s camp was quick to respond that the rapper’s collapse was due to heat exhaustion, stating that he “dropped from the heat — no other factors involved. He was exhausted from travel (over 8 hours of layovers) and the club was humid and about 85 degrees … really bad scene.”

The source denied that Tone suffered a seizure, although several websites report that Tone suffered a similar onstage collapse at a North Carolina performance in 2008. Tone needs to sip more of that Medina next time.
