 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.

His body is telling him something serious is going on within. He would be wise to listen to his body and stay in the hospital as long as necessary to heal. People don't have two seizures right behind another for no reason.

at which point a doctor on board administered CPR on the rapper.

It's not in this article, it's in the first one..about the first seizure.

Abysmal     

Here's a suggestion guys,ignore the negative comments.Trolls like RogueWarrior and OhWell keep on contributing garbage because you feed them.Eventually they're going to get bored and move on.

Rick needs to postpone whatever he's doing to focus on his health. Living an unhealthy and edgy lifestyle leads to early death.

DUDE HAS THE GRAND MAL SEIZURE SYNDROME THAT TOOK TEENA MARIE'S LIFE. ALL THE SIGNS ARE THERE. LEARN THE LESSON KIDDIES... STAY AWAY FROM THE F*CKING DRUGS, WILL DO YOU EVERY TIME. EVEN YOU GO TO REHAB AND GET CLEAN DOESNT MEAN SH*T. LINGERING SIDE EFFECTS OF DRUGS AND ALCOHOL CAN CAUSE SIMILAR SEIZURES, SPEECH DEFECTS, SHAKINESS, ETC. ASK TEENA MARIE. WHERE IS SHE NOW?? TOO BAD FOR RICK ROSS. HE'S GONNA KICK THE BUCKET JUST A MATTER OF TIME. SAD, TRUTH!!!

I suffered about 4 or 5 seizures in 2008 when I quit xanax and booze cold turkey in a sober living house. On celebrity rehab some lady also abused xanax and alcohol too like me and she had a seizure on camera ....I'm still trying to get license back cause the DMV wont let you drive unless they determine your fine

The comments are so disrespectful to Rick. The man is suffering. As others have pointed out, the seizures signify something greater that is going on. Something is not right. Perhaps he didn't listen or heed warnings from docs the first time around thinking it was a fluke. NOW if he doesn't slow down, he is a fool.

Rick, take care of yourself. You can't make money 6 ft under.
