 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.

Swinson is dead on. Im a nurse and one seizure you can write off as idiosyncratic but I would still wonder why they didnt do a bunch of tests with somebody with ZERO history of seizure activity thats a big red flag. 2nd one in a day. Something more serious is going on. Yes my first guess would be an aneuysm that is leaking slowly and increasing his ICP (intracranial pressure). They need to do a CT with Contrast of the brain that will show any circulatory abnormalities pretty quick and its much faster to get done and be read.. IF that iddnt show then you could go to a Galadnium Contrast MRI of the Brain which would look for tiny masses and defects.. He could potentially have a tiny tumor in the midbrain or heaven forbid worse the brain stem that could cause the same issues. The brain is very delicate and as some have pointed out a little pressure difference can cause issues. I would assume that any other medical causes of a seizure have been ruled out such as acute Hypoglycemia (big fellow didnt know if maybe he had Diabetes) in which his BS might have been technically normal but a rapid drop can cause acute hypoglycemic episode due to the rapid drop in glucose can also cause seizures in a patient as well. Electrolyte imbalance though for sure would have been ruled out it should have and wouldve been caught at the 1st hospital visit.

Why is such a big deal being made over Rick Ross having a seizure when people have these everyday, sometimes allday. The doctors informed him of what he needs to do, he a grown man he know what he need to do and if money is more important than let him try to get it. The nerve of him not to even thank his fans for showing him sympathy but to promote his music further. This Rapper talks about smoking dope and selling it on records and cant even say thank you. Wow!!!!!!!!!!!

god some of you guys are so damned ignorant...don't say what caused it because you don't F'n know you aren't his Dr. and to those out there saying that "I hope he dies" or "he deserves it lay off the weed coke or fried chicken" do your research before you open your uneducated racist stereotype spewing mouths I said yesterday the Dr.'s do not know what cause mine and earlier today I stated how it's been proven that Marijuana actually helps with seizures so again don't open your mouth if your just going to be disrespectful and wish more harm to the guy just because you don't like his music or you are just going from the stereotypes because guess what THEY AREN'T ALWAYS TRUE!
again I hope Rick gets better and that these idiots who are saying oh he died and all the other stupid comments get a lesson in sensitivity.
