Published Mar 02, 2018Rick Ross has been hospitalized in Miami and has been placed on a form of life support.
TMZ first reported the rapper's alleged hospitalization this morning, noting that he was rushed to hospital after being found unresponsive in his Miami area home. TMZ reports that those who found Ross tried to wake up him up, only to find him "slobbing out the mouth."
TMZ reports that Ross is receiving treatment via extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), a medical technique used to provide cardiac and respiratory support to a patient whose heart and lungs cannot function properly.
UPDATE (3/5, 2:25 p.m. EST): TMZ now reports Ross is recovering at home, though still receiving care.
Ross' medical history includes falling unconscious after suffering a seizure in 2011, though he chalked that incident up to a lack of sleep. The rapper released his Rather You Than Me LP last year, also appearing on Action Bronson's Blue Chips 7000 mixtape.
