Tone Loc -- I Was On Fire!

5/29/2009 1:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tone LocSometimes Tone Loc is too hot for his own good -- 'cause that's exactly what the rapper claims caused him to pass out at a live concert early this morning.

Sources extremely close to the rapper say Tone "dropped from the heat -- no other factors involved. He was exhausted from travel (over 8 hours of layovers) and the club was humid and about 85 degrees ... really bad scene."

There are reports Tone suffered a seizure, but according to our source, those claims are completely unfounded.

Loc was treated and released from a nearby hospital. He'll be back to performing songs he wrote 20 years ago in due time.

I was at this concert last night. He got through about 6 songs and hit the floor. It was crazy. But you should know that his manager reproted to the pensacola news journal that it took him 12 hours to get to Pensacola, so there is no way possible that he had 8 hours of layovers. it's not a 4 hour flight to Pcola. It takes 4 hours from Houston to Vegas. So you do the math. And I also think that "oh it's hot and humid" is BS. They said it was only 85 degrees last night with 85% humidity. That equal to about 95 degrees in Cali weather. Oh and P.S., Capt'n Fun's Beach Club is exactly that- on the beach with the wind blowing. There is something more to this story. He was pouring sweat before he even started performing.

I was standing right there too. He did have a seizure, he was shaking and twitching like jello. When he came to he was combative with the cops and emts.

The concert was held at Captain Funs Beach Club on Pensacola Beach Florida. I was attending the concert and i can confirm that Tone Loc did have seizures on stage.

I was on the same flight with him fron Atlanta last night. I was right behind him checking in at the gate and heard him chatting with one of the pilots about playing in Pensacola later. When we arrived at baggage claim about 8pm I got my bag off of the carosel and turned to see him on the floor. Within a minute or so several cops were around him as well as his friend who was traveling with him. The cops seemed more concerned than his friend. This must be a regular occurence. There was an ambulance pulling up as I got in my car to leave the terminal. Hope he's OK.
