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.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
