Just a few hours ago, Rick Ross suffered a seizure aboard a commercial flight from Fort Lauderdale to Memphis. The plane was forced to make an emergency landing and EMT performed CPR on the Maybach Music boss before rushing him off to the hospital.

Originally, Ricky Rozay was scheduled to throw down a set as part of tonight's Memphis Madness university b-ball bash. And sure, you'd think the gig would be canceled after this whole seizure scare thing. But nah, homie, a little abnormal neuronal activity isn't gonna stop the Bawse.

In fact, Rozay checked out of the hospital, changed his outfit, fired up the private jet, tweeted "#Memphis here I come," and posted a twitvid saying, "Y'all better keep it motherfuckin' locked!"

See the cut for the full Rick Ross' video guarantee.
