Tone Loc Has Seizure At Charity Event — Tha Wire

Though his manager maintains the rapper got a hold of some bad food, Tone Toc apparently had another seizure on Monday August 13th.  Loc was attending a charity event at the Laugh Factory when the incident occurred.

Loc’s medical emergency was bad enough for folks at the event to call 911.  Ironically, Tone Loc has had several medical emergencies over the last few years.  More recently he collapsed on stage while performing in Atlanta and Austin just last year.  Maybe it’s me, but you don’t pass out or have seizures several times if nothing is wrong and certainly not from bad food.  Press play below and learn more about Tone’s latest close call.

In more news, Rick Ross is on the cover of the current issue of “Rolling Stone” and inside the pages he opens up for the first time about his controversial past of being a corrections officer.   Rozay talked about his best friend being locked up for trafficking heroin and cocaine, ” This was my best friend, who I ate peanut-butter and jelly sandwiches with and pork and beans with, my buddy, my partner, my number one dude.  Suddenly I’m talking to him over federal phone calls.  Hearing the way it was building, I knew i couldn’t  take nothing for granted.  My homey’s father was a huge influence on my life, too.  He was the one who was like, yo go get a job somewhere, man.  Go be a fireman.  Or go be a *ucking corrections officer.  Just go sit down somewhere.”

As far as his seizures, Rick blamed his habit of smoking too much marijuana on the incidents.  Rozy said, ” I’m most definitely an avid user, a pothead, however you want to look at it.  I call it green caviar.  It’s like a short vacation- it helps me chill out.  And people really love it when I chill out, because I can really be a dickhead.”



In even more news, learn more about the new single and album from DMX.  It’s been pushed back a bit and I got the date.  Plus, it’ll feature an A-list of rappers both living and dead.  Finally, 2 Chainz dropped his debut album this week.  Get all the details now with Tha Wire.
