 TMZ has learned ... Rick Ross' private jet made an emergency landing in Birmingham, Alabama, 2 hours ago, en route to his concert in Memphis ... and we found out he suffered another seizure.

It's the second time today where a plane in which the rapper was a passenger made an emergency landing.  We broke the story ... Rick suffered a seizure this morning on a Delta flight that returned to the Ft. Lauderdale airport.

Rick went to the hospital, was released, and then took off at 5:07 PM ET from Ft. Lauderdale to make his concert  tonight in Memphis. But at 5:44 PM CDT, the plane was diverted and landed in Birmingham after Rick had a seizure on board.

Rick is currently in a Birmingham hospital emergency room.  We do not know his condition.

Before Rick took off from Ft. Lauderdale, he tweeted a video showing he was ok.

Rick was supposed to be on stage in Memphis at 7:30 PM ET.

I have seizures. I take 3 different medications a day for them. WHY was he even let out of the hospital after the first one?? He shouldve been kept OVERNIGHT for observation unless he has a history of seizures. And IF he does have a history...atleast kept him for 6+ hours so they could administer proper anti-convulsant medications via an IV.

@TEEWHY...thank you!!

@AC...that is in NO WAY correct. Seizures are a neurological disorder and have NOTHING to do with weight.

He didn't have a concert in Memphis. He was performing at Memphis Madness for the University of Memphis Tigers. Yo Gotti is on the court right now. Get well soon, Boss. And - GO TIGERS!!!!

That's scary. I'm sure the hospital advised him to stay, but they can't hold a person against their will. There is no way I believe that a person who is given CPR gets a clean bill of health in just a couple of hours. I bet they also advised him not to get back on an airplane.

This guy is none too bright. After a seizure that required rescue procedures, the best thing to do is jump on f***in' twitter and run your mouth, then jump on another plane. Duh. Some people really are too stupid to live.
