Rick Ross is being treated by paramedics after he lost consciousness on a flight from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. to Memphis earlier today. The plane was forced to make an emergency landing to save him.

TMZ has reported that the emergency call went out to paramedics at 12:55 p.m. ET and that the caller reported that the rapper was suffering a seizure. Though TMZ says that paramedics were "desperately" attempting to resuscitate Ross, rapper Wale tweeted around 1:40 p.m. ET that he "just talked to Ross … he's 100 pct ok."

Update: Rick Ross has tweeted in reply to Rap Radar journalist Elliott Wilson, which should be some indication that he's doing okay.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
